Ahhhh! As a HUGE Joss Whedon fan, and Hunger Games fan, it warms my heart to hear Joss speak so well of The Hunger Games and the value of strong female characters! He knows his stuff when it comes to sci-fi!
Whedon has long been known for writing strong female characters, which he notes is still a rarity in Hollywood.
“I think they’ve been peripheral for a long time, and I think The Hunger Games is about to change that in a big way,” he told THR. “I really like it; it’s my kind of thing. And more important, I like what it’s doing, which is millions.”
