Word from Marc Malkin at E! Online is that geek favorite Joss Whedon and documentarian Morgan Spurlock are looking to follow around a bunch of costumed lovers of the arts in the months leading up to August’s San Diego Comic-Con. According to a source, the pair are currently developing the idea, which will focus on a small group of convention-going supergeeks and the people around them.

It’s a wonderful notion, assuming it will celebrate the fandom. One has to believe that a team like Whedon (who owes everything he has to that crowd) and Spurlock (a generally fair filmmaker) would turn it into a celebration of what Comic-Con is really about, or a condemnation of what Comic-Con has become. And not a forum for which to poke fun at folks who dress up like Stormtroopers. That would be the cheap and easy way out, and a way that doesn’t show Comic-Con attendees for what the really are: some of the most passionate and gracious people on the planet. There’s a tight community there, underneath the swarms of Twilight fans and movie bloggers, and I would love to see something about their story.
