I always thought he was kinda messy since Firefly had engaging characters and a good story-line but REALLY CORNY DIALOGUE. I haven't seen Buffy and I don't remember the first Avengers movie that much, but from what I can gather, The Avengers wasn't that well shot in my opinion and the aspect ratio, as well as the lighting, made it feel more like a TV movie in my opinion. The faults of his writing finally started to show during the re-shot version of Justice League, which I couldn't even finish due to it being REALLY TERRIBLE. And yes, I did read his Wonder Woman script and it was WAY WORSE than what we got in the end. And now he’s been kicked off The Nevers due to growing allegations so now, he’s one of THOSE people in Hollywood.
