I just figured out that the version of the Avengers that Joss Whedon is writing and directing is some superheroes in leotards crap, and not a remake of, you know, "The Avengers". With John Steed and Emma Peel.

Yes, you can shoot me now for failing to investigate this properly earlier. But what a way to kill my buzz there, huh?

I went through the exact same thing when I first heard about this movie. And I'm still peeved about it.

So, how do we cast the remake? If Joss isn't doing it, someone else has to.
Hmmm, I'm stuck on an actress that looks awesome in a catsuit yet has the poise to drink the champagne as well. And is English.
Actually I was relieved that Joss wasn't remaking The Avengers with Steed and Peel. Because other than remote possibility of him casting ASH as John Steed (which would only happen in a t.v. remake and not on the big screen) I can't see him doing justice to Emma Peel these days. Not after Dollhouse.
Oh, the suave. The suave would kill me. Also, the bowler hat.

I think Whedon is clueless about his own writing at the moment. How else to explain BtVS season 8? What a train wreck that thing is.
Oh, I'm sorry about that! I guess I knew right away, growing up a comic book superhero fan. That's what happens when one's brother is only 16 months younger.
I know my Batman pretty well, but otherwise I'm pretty weak on costumed superheroes. Especially weak on Marvel properties-- I don't think I even knew there was a superhero group called that. But Steed & Peel! Those fine people I know. Sniffle.
