    I'd not the biggest Whedon fan but he does have some talent to him, Abrams is basically Michael Bay given a lick of "credibility" paint.

    Whedon hasn't made enough movies to be compared to JJ.

    Whedon is more creative (not saying much) Abraham’s is the master of cutting cookies

    Yeah JJ makes stuff that really is dumb. A teleporter that basically makes space travel irrelevant. Fin going from a torn storm trooper to a goofball janitor within the same film. Guy puts out ideas and forgets where he put them

    Age of Ultron was bad.

    Why Joss?

    Mission Impossible 3 is JJ’s only good movie.

    I’ll say Whedon by Avengers 1.

    I like both of their stuff in general. I tend not to let details turn me off on movies.
