Avengers director Joss Whedon has proved it's actually possible to be a Hollywood a big shot - and by big we're talking MARVEL UNIVERSE big - and still have a heart.

He knew his fans were excited for his upcoming paranormal-romance In Your Eyes (because who wouldn't be intrigued by a paranormal romance?), so he let them watch it... immediately! And that's just the beginning of what became an unprecedented RAMPAGE of Hollywood generosity. Check this out:

First, he ditched a theatrical release for Vimeo.

Instead of having his fans pay 10 to 20 bucks for the big screen, he released it on Vimeo for $5 streaming.

Apparently, HE felt the one indebted to those who watched it.

So he started sending thank-you gifts to randomly selected streamers.

Beyond the typical sorts of autographed memorabilia,

fans received Apple TVs,

Xbox Ones,

Weber grills,

and a cactus.

I think this calls for a re-gif.

...maybe one more:

Joss Whedon, I think you're insane, but you're the BEST person in the world. Here's to you, man.
