Joss Whedon: Must vote!

Firefly creator and The Avengers writer-director Joss Whedon has ended his boycott of social media to relay an important message: Vote in the forthcoming elections.

Whedon has established a Super PAC, Save the Day, and posted a video message that features a raft of celebs - Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Mark Ruffalo, Julianne Moore, Nathan Fillion, Keegan-Michael Key, and Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr. The message is entirely partisan.
