Avengers director Joss Whedon quits Twitter

Director Joss Whedon has deleted his Twitter account, following criticism of his latest film, Age of Ultron.

Its portrayal of female characters such as assassin Black Widow by Scarlett Johannsson had been called sexist.

Comic-book fans had also criticised Marvel’s Avengers superhero film’s plot, on the social network.

Immediately prior to deleting his account, Whedon tweeted: “Thank you to all the people who’ve been so kind and funny and inspiring up in here”.
