* {{Atheism}}: Whedon is rather hardline about this, but on the other hand, he ''is'' capable of writing religious characters without letting his own beliefs influence him.
** Steve "ComicBook/CaptainAmerica" Rogers in ''The Avengers'' states his belief that "There's only one God", but that's pretty much the ''only'' thing the other Avengers don't make fun of him for.
*** Though he also admits that Hulk's "Puny god" moment was more fun than it should have been for him to make, and he gives Loki the analogy [[TakeThat "as pathetic as a child at prayer."]]
** [[{{Series/Firefly}} Shepherd Book]] is a friendly, open-minded Christian as well as a deep, well-rounded character.

** A particularly potent one, for comic books fans and companies alike: before he was attached to ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', Whedon was writing a ''ComicBook/WonderWoman'' movie for DCComics. [=DC=] passed on it, he got the Avengers job from Kevin Feige, and the rest is history. Imagine how much [=DC=] must be kicking themselves. Whedon ultimately cast his Wonder Woman as SHIELD agent Maria Hill, and she did get to play the character, [[WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie eventually]].

** Joss doesn't have fond memories of ''{{Roseanne}}''. The eponymous star was apparently on [[ThePrimadonna her worst behavior]], and the whole crew bore the brunt of it.

*** When ''[=AoS=]'' star Brett Dalton was asked to meet with the writers regarding [[spoiler:Ward's FaceHeelTurn]], he thought they were going to tell him his character was about to die.

*** When ''[=AoS=]'' star Brett Dalton was asked to meet with the writers regarding [[spoiler:Ward's FaceHeelTurn]], he thought they were going to tell him his character was about to die. This is a bit HilariousInHindsight as [[spoiler:when the show did kill Ward off a couple years later, it was done in a way that allowed Dalton to stay on the show with the Inhuman Hive possessing his body.]]

** ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'': [[spoiler:Agent Coulson. Except not really.]]

to:

** ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'': [[spoiler:Agent Coulson. Except not really.]]]] This was actually a mandate from the studio, but Whedon immediately knew that all the fans would assume it was his idea due to his history with this, and he would have a very hard time convincing them otherwise.
