“What will Joss do next?”, we all wondered after The Avengers: Age Of Ultron. The answer, as it turns out, is write an original comic book series for Dark Horse Comics.
During a spotlight panel with Dark Horse at SDCC, Whedon announced that he has completed work on a six-issue mini-series for the publisher called Twist. The series is the answer to a quandary Whedon found himself revisiting over and over which was “why isn’t there a Victorian, female Batman?” – we thought you’d never ask!
The synopsis, as spoken by the man himself, is as follows: “It’s a Victorian thriller about a meek chambermaid who is fed to a dark horror — but instead of dying, she returns, with knowledge, power, and rage she can neither deny nor control.”
