Maybe it’s time Joss Whedon directed an episode of “The Walking Dead.”
“The Avengers” writer-director opted to weigh in with some thoughts on the upcoming presidential election, offering a sharp-tongued video “endorsement” of Republican nominee Mitt Romney — provided voters are hoping to hasten the zombie apocalypse.
Calmly talking to the camera, Whedon identifies himself as a liberal before going on to state that it’s a very different world than it was four years ago when Barack Obama was elected. “Romney’s ready to make the deep rollbacks in healthcare, education, social services, reproductive rights that will guarantee poverty, unemployment, over-population, disease, rioting — all crucial elements in creating a nightmare zombie wasteland,” Whedon says.
In this new future, the filmmaker advises: “Anyone who can run, fight, make explosives out of household objects or especially do Parkour of any kind, you’ll want to stick with them.”
And, of course, make sure you’re stocked up on canned goods.
