Joss Whedon shared an eye-opening fact during Saturday nightâ€™s reunion of the â€œDr. Horribleâ€™s Sing-Along Blogâ€ team: Heâ€™s made more money from his independently financed 2008 Internet musical than he did from writing and directing Marvelâ€™s first blockbuster â€œAvengersâ€ movie.
That’s pretty amazing considering he would have picked up between $5 and $10 million for writing and directing that first Avenger’s movie.
I previously wrote ofÂ Dr Horrible’s Singalong Blog in February 2009, where IÂ discussed where the income was coming from. The iTunes revenue and DVD sales must have been pretty good as streaming served more as promotion for the iTunes and DVD sales.
