And, finally, Joss Whedon, the father of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Firefly” and, of course, “the Avengers” – the most sensational of the Marvel comics movies so far – put up his astonishing country home in Brentwood for sale not so long ago. The very same house that he used in his critically acclaimed adaptation of Shakespear’s “Much Ado About Nothing”. The classic English estate has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a music room, 2 offices, a media room and a spacious park-like backyard. The only luxurious feature it’s missing is probably a huge pool. All that for a neat price of $3.7M.
After the huge success of “The Avengers” and the upcoming box-office hit “Avengers: Age of Ultron” Joss Whedon will have enough money to throw a Marvel-themed party starring ScarJo, Downey Jr, and Chris Pratt at his new place and proudly exclaim “Avengers, assemble!”.
