In J.J. Abrams vs. Joss Whedon, Wendy Sterba compares the parallel careers in film and television of two creative masterminds—pitting one against the other in a light-hearted competition. The author looks back upon the beginnings of both men’s careers—Whedon’s stint as a writer on Roseanne and Abrams’ early scripts for films like Regarding Henry—and forward to their most recent blockbusters, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This books also looks at non-fantasy successes (Abrams series Felicity; Whedon’s adaptation of Much Ado about Nothing), as well as commercial failures. At the heart of this study, however, is a tour of their genre-defining hits: Alias and Buffy, Lost and Angel, Super 8 and Serenity, along with Whedon’s Avengers films, and Abrams’ rebooted Star Trek adventures.

Drawing on the works of Shakespeare and American screenwriter Joss Whedon, this study in narrative ethics contends that Whedon is the Shakespeare of our time. The Bard wrote before the influence of the modern moral philosophers, while Whedon is writing in the postmodern period. It is argued that Whedon's work is more in harmony with the early modern values of Shakespeare than with modern ethics, which trace their origin to 17th and 18th century moral philosophy. This study includes a detailed discussion of representative works of Shakespeare and Whedon, showing how they can and should be read as forms of narrative ethics.

Viel Lärm um nichts ist eine Komödie um Liebe und Intrigen von William Shakespeare; sie unterscheidet sich von Shakespeares anderen romanesken Komödien durch den realeren Bezug zur Liebe. Claudio interessiert sich vor allem für Heros Erbschaft, Benedikt und Beatrice erliegen nicht der konventionellen Augenliebe, sondern finden sich erst nach Einmischungen der anderen Figuren. Besonders hervorstechend ist das Spiel mit dem Sein und dem Schein, worauf schon das Wortspiel im Titel hinweist – nothing und noting („nichts“ und „wahrnehmen, erkennen“). Damit sind einerseits die Intrigen gegen Hero, andererseits die Sitten der höfischen Selbstinszenierung, insbesondere bei Benedikt und Beatrice, gemeint. Geschrieben wurde das Stück 1598/99 und erstmals in der Quartoausgabe von 1600 gedruckt.

From the 4 million US viewers who watched Buffy, the Vampire Slayer to a worldwide box office of $1.5 billion for The Avengers is quite a leap. Yet the creator of them both, Josh Whedon, told as personal a tale with six superheroes and over-the-top explosions as he did with a girl trying to make her way through high school. Whedon has always been determined to follow his own path. This definitive biography shows how his years at an elite English public school led to his early successes, which often turned into frustration in both television (Roseanne) and film (Buffy the Vampire Slayer; Alien: Resurrection). But when Whedon resurrected his girl hero on a young network, the results enabled him to produce three more television series, several movies, and Marvel comic books, culminating in the blockbuster The Avengers. Then Much Ado About Nothing, a personal project shot in his home and cast with friends, allowed him to step out of Marvel's shadow. Amy Pascale has based this revealing biography on extensive original interviews with Whedon's family, friends, collaborators, and stars—as well as with the man himself. They've shared candid, behind-the-scenes accounts of his work with Pixar, his filmmaking adventures, and the making of his groundbreaking series Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Amy Pascale is a director at MTV. She co-founded and edits the offbeat Web magazine PopGurls.com. She lives in New York. Nathan Fillion starred in the Josh Whedon vehicles Firefly, Serenity, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, and Much Ado About Nothing. He plays Richard Castle on the ABC series Castle.
