The Academy Award-winning cinematographer behind The Dark Knight Rises recently took some shots at Joss Whedon's blockbuster The Avengers, and now Whedon himself has responded to the hate.

Wally Pfister, the cinematographer behind films like The Dark Knight Rises and Atonement, recently called The Avengers an "appalling film," filled with "illogical forms[s] of storytelling" that drove him "bonkers."

Entertainment Weekly tracked down Whedon to ask his thoughts on Pfister's public bashing, and he gave a very polite response (which sadly lacked his usual Whedon-esque snark, but hey, he's trying to be classy).

He simply replied:

"I'm sorry to hear it, I'm a fan."
We're sorry to hear it too, Joss, but you should be able to sleep easy knowing virtually everyone else loved the film, and most can't wait for the sequel in 2015.

What do you think? Did the cinematography in Avengers drive you "bonkers"?
