*** 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.]]]] 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.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: 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 [=DC=]. [=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]].

* DoesNotLikeShoes: While not as egregious as Creator/QuentinTarantino in that regard, Whedon often shows female protagonists barefoot, from [[Series/{{Firefly}} River]] to [[Film/TheAvengers Pepper]]. Occasionally justified by having said characters using [[SheFu martial arts or other acrobatic maneuvers]]. He's even stated that River's feet are the eleventh character of the show (the ship Serenity being the tenth).

-->'''Whedon''': The idea of doing [Film/TheAvengers] three times just staggers the imagination. Iím not that young. But then, I hadnít really intended to do a second one. In the third one, I really am going to kill everyone.
