Buffy Spinoff

April 18, 2012 Leave a comment

Joss Whedon told The A.V. Club that he and the BBC are interested in a spinoff of Buffy the Vampire Slayer focused on Buffy’s mentor Giles. The show would be called Ripper based on the nickname Rupert Giles, played by Anthony Stewart Head, earned in his occult past. Joss Whedon said:

[Y]ou could make that now, or you could make it 10 years from now. And I’ve tortured Tony more than any other living human with, “We’re definitely gonna do this!” Because I thought we were. He’s working so much, though, I’d feel too guilty. But that’s the thing with Ripper: It doesn’t go away in my head because he’s still right for it, and he could still bring it.

Joss Whedon Discusses Buffy vs. Black Widow

April 11, 2012 Leave a comment

Whitney Matheson at PopCandy asked Joss Whedon some pretty hard questions in an interview. One of them was who would win between vampire slayer Buffy Summers and spy Black Widow. Whedon answered:

Buffy would go easy at first, but as soon as Natasha popped her with a Widow Sting, she’d start bringing some slayer brawn to the fray. Natasha’s fast, but a couple of good connects and she’s wobbling, possibly something broken — she whips out her glock and now Buffy’s dodging — right where Natasha wants her. Natasha shoots the cable holding the steel barrels and they tumble onto Buffy, nearly burying her — Buffy just arcs out of the way, grabbing the splintered cable and swinging directly onto Natasha, a bullet grazing her cheek as her feet land hard on the Russian’s shoulders, sending her back flat – crack! – on the floor, Buffy wrenching the gun away and tossing it, fist ready for the final strike. Natasha, struggling to stay conscious, says the fight’s over. Buffy agrees, but Natasha explains: She poisoned Buffy hours ago. That waitress that brought her salad …? Natasha smiles. The poison is dormant — ’til it’s activated by adrenaline. Buffy’s eyes narrow. “Too bad I didn’t use any.” Wham! Natasha’s out for the count, and Buffy’s heading — slowly — to Willow for a mystical cleanse.

That’d be my first guess.

The title might be misleading, but if you can’t figure it out this is the second theatrical trailer for the Avengers!



So many awesome money shots in this trailer! Seriously, is it May Fourth yet? I may just have to see this in 3D…
