Dark Horse had a long run with Buffy the Vampire Slayer and related titles, which continued the characters’ adventures after the show’s end. Boom! now owns the rights, and they’ve taken their own, comic-appropriate approach to the Slayer:
A slightly different format for this week’s episode. We’re going with quotes from the Whedonverse. That is, films and shows from Joss Whedon. How well do you know your Buffy, Angle, Firefly, and Dollhouse quotes?
Entertainment Weekly reunited the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer for a photo shoot and some limited edition covers. I cannot speak for the magazine’s contents, but it’s fun to see the gang back together for the show’s twentieth anniversary.
According to this Hollywood Reporter article, the Kuzuis intend to reboot the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” film franchise. The original movie was produced and directed by the pair, who retained Executive Producer credit on the TV series. The main difference here: due to the rights as outlined in the original agreement, they are under no obligation to involve Joss Whedon in any way, and are running with a reboot concept pitched by Roy Lee from Vertigo Entertainment. This won’t involve characters created for the TV series, either, including Angel, Spike, Xander and Willow. My personal commentary: they’re going to need to hit it out of the part to get the existing fanbase to accept a “Buffy” project that doesn’t involve Joss Whedon. I’m sure I’m not the only fan who greatly preferred the TV series to the original movie.
