‘Avengers’ Director Joss Whedon Fears US Will Start Killing Gays

”This is harrowing, and it’s where we’re headed if we don’t unite and act,“ Whedon tweets about Chechnya executions

Director Joss Whedon (“The Avengers”) strongly hinted in a twitter post on Thursday night that President Donald Trump’s government might follow the example of Chechnya’s government and murder gay men.

Whedon, who is currently in early talks to direct a “Batgirl” film for DC Films and Warner Bros., has been a longtime critic of Trump. Whedon launched a star-studded pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC called Save The Day during the 2016 presidential election.

After Trump won the election, Whedon tweeted “This is simple: Trump cannot CANNOT be allowed a term in office. It’s not about 2018. It’s about RIGHT NOW.”

Whedon recently went on the offensive and attacked Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Republicans in general: “Rejecting DeVos was the GOP’s easiest way to say ‘Mr Prez, let’s take this slow, we got 4 yrs’. Instead they declared war on our children.”

The election seems to have taken a tool on Whedon who also recently tweeted, “I think I’m broken. I never ran smooth but I think I’m really broken, I’m sorry, I was funny for a while, good times, please keep fighting.”

Meanwhile on the fanboy side, Whedon’s move to DC Films would be a big shakeup for the comic book movie world, having served as a core creative force behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe as director of “The Avengers” and its 2015 sequel, “Age of Ultron.” He also had a hand in Marvel’s expansion to television by co-creating the ABC series “Agents of SHIELD” in 2013.
