I’m really excited to see Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Joss Whedon.

Clark Gregg plays Leonato, who is world famous as Agent Phil Coulson in the recent Marvel series of movies (Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Thor) that lead up to The Avengers.
I’m especially excited to see Clark Gregg in this. Several years ago I happened to meet him a few times. He’s a great guy, and I think the phenomenal success of The Avengers was due in large part to his performance as a human surrounded by superhumans.
As I've written before (here and here), it is very hard to get Shakespeare films made these days, and anyone who has the courage to do it, like Joss Whedon and company, deserves our praise and our support.
I hope you go see this film -- and don't wait for DVD or Blu-ray -- go see it in the movie theaters!
