Joss Whedon Biography
Joss Whedon was born in June of 1964 in New York City. Son of Tom Whedon, who was a television screenwriter in the 70’s and 80’s, and grandson of John Whedon, who was a screenwriter in the 50’s and 60’s. Whedon was interested in British television shows such as Masterpiece Theater and Monty Python, from a very young age. He even spent three years at Winchester College in England before graduating from Wesleyan University in 1987.
Whedon began his career co-writing for the hit sitcom Roseanne but left the show to create his first film, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” Buffy was a hit not only in America, but around the world. He then was hired to write a television series based on his movie. He is the co-writer of numerous films that have proven to be extremely successful including “Toy Story”, “The Cabin in the Woods”, and “Serenity”. Whedon has also worked on “Runaways”, and “Astonishing X-Men”, and, in 2012, he was one of the creators of “Marvel’s The Avengers”, which is the third-highest grossing film of all time. In fact, the last three Avengers movies have all been money-making blockbusters.
Whedon established his own film production company called Mutant Enemy Productions and is co-founder of “Bellwether Pictures,” another film production company. Whedon is the mind behind a good number of successful television shows including “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”, “Firefly”, “Dollhouse”, and “Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog.” Whedon has also written some of his own cartoon books and is a composer as well.
Whedon lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children. He has a current net worth of $100 million, which should be a drop in the bucket should this screenwriting dynamo continue to churn out high earning television and movie scripts.
