Save the Day

Joss Whedon is officially back on twitter and he's brought The Avengers and a few other friends along to encourage you to Save the Day.

The creator exited Twitter in May of 2015, explaining his reasoning to Buzzfeed at the time, “I just thought, wait a minute, if I”m going to start writing again, I have to go to the quiet place and this is the least quiet place I”ve ever been in my life.”

Now tweeting under simply @Joss (his old URL is being used by, um, someone else), The Avengers director has returned with a special message.

According to Buzzfeed, “Whedon has recruited an eight-person team to work on Save the Day, led by executive director Ben Sheehan of Funny or Die. They”ve already shot seven videos, mostly written and directed by Whedon, and plan to make at least five more, rolling out one to three a week via the Save the Day website and elsewhere online until election day.”

Along with head of production Jennifer Cochis, Whedon flew to Los Angeles, New York, back to L.A., and then to N.Y. again, and back once more to L.A. to gather all the folks who agreed to help. That includes Avengers & Co. Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Don Cheadle, Cobie Smulders, and Clark Gregg as well as other Whedonites like Neil Patrick Harris, Amber Benson, Ashley Johnson, Tom Lenk and Nathan Fillion. Lots of other familiar faces of course as well.

Bonus! They also posted a behind-the-scenes video!
