Will Whedon Be Covering Whedon in His Comic Con Doc?

It's a question I've been asking myself for a couple of weeks now. The documentary that Whedon is involved in, titled "Comic-Con Episode Four: A Fan's Hope," will follow seven people from from around the world and various geek ilk, as they attend the ultimate fandom event: San Diego Comic Con. This past weekend, a Press Release  came out asking for said die hards of any geekdom (Trekkie, Ringer, Potterhead, Fanboy/girl, Cosplayer, etc) to reach out to the creative Dream Team which consists of Oscar-nominated filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, producer Thomas Tull, comic book legend Stan Lee, and our very own Joss Whedon and share their obsessive fandom stories. Question is, do Whedonites need not apply?

The most intriguing about this film would be seeing one of our peeps up there as a member of the golden-ticket-winning 7. But how can Whedon cover Whedon in this documentary without coming off as a total narcissist? Sure, we know he's quite aware of his kingdom, The Whedonverse, as displayed in the Robot Chicken clip below. But will he go there? To avoid it would be a travesty, but I wonder if and how he will brooch the subject. Tell me, do any of you plan on responding to the geeky casting call? If so, let us know and don't forget to email the boys Include your name, phone number, a picture, and tell them your fannish, Whedon-obsessed story. Come on, show 'em your Spike tattoos.
