Whedon said that film would celebrate the comic heroes _ Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and others _ in a fan-boy way. He said his approach isn’t like the more self-conscious “The Dark Knight,” but compared it to “a war movie.”

“I’m not ready to be postmodern about superheroes yet,” Whedon said Saturday to warm applause.

His next project _ “the next voice I’m hearing in my head,” he said _ is another Web series called “Wastelanders.” Whedon called it a “dark, weird piece.”

The long list of upcoming work only reinforced the wait for “The Cabin in the Woods.” Whitford joked of Whedon and Goddard: “They won’t work with us anymore.”
