Hollywood director and activist Joss Whedon says the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court has cemented “the first American dictatorship” into history.

The director of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” told fans late Monday that President Trump will usher in an era worse than anything conceived by a Marvel supervillain. The longtime Democratic Party activist, whose celebrity-endorsed Save the Day Superpac failed to sway the 2016 presidential election, warned that merely considering the judge for the Supreme Court will manifest tyranny.

“Even CONSIDERING this nomination will cement the first American dictatorship #KavaNO,” Mr. Whedon tweeted.

The director did not mention how Mr. Kavanaugh’s 12 years on the U.S. appeals court failed to draw the attention of doomsday activists until now.

“My judicial philosophy is straightforward: a judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law,” the 53-year-old justice said shortly after his nomination by Mr. Trump. “A judge must interpret statutes as written. And a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history, and tradition and precedent.”

Mr. Whedon predicted in April 2017 that Mr. Trump would have gay men killed in a Chechen-like purge. The directed also called Immigration and Customs Enforcement “Trump’s SS” in February.
