Twenty Most Recent Entries For Buffy - News
July 11, 2004
I had several people email reports that while doing an interview in Australia, James Marsters mentioned that Joss approached him about returning to the Buffyverse. Hercules at AICN also reported on this story. According to his comments, it could be as many as four made-for-television movies. Each would focus on a different character, and it's safe to assume that one of those would be Spike. If I had to guess, I would think Willow, Illyria, and Giles would be the others. Giles would make the most sense, as at least a partial story for 'Ripper' already exists.
In somewhat unrelated Anthony Stewart Head news, he has signed to join the cast of 'Monarch of the Glen'. Some may recall that I have mentioned this series in the past, and while I personally feel that the show is not worth watching past Season Two, with both Anthony and Tom Baker ('Doctor Who') on the cast I may have to start again.

BTVS: Animated Buffy Not Far Off
In case you haven't been following the News Feed, it appears more and more likely that 'Buffy' will return to the airwaves in an animated form sometime in the near future. Details are still very vague, and it's questionable if anything has progressed past completion of the Pilot. Based on comments made, it would appear that it's being shopped around, and should not be considered a certainty at this stage.
However, it is a good sign that Fox is still interested in the franchise, and in keeping the series in some form on the airwaves.
As mentioned in a previous post, it should be considered a given that the site will cover any Buffyverse series. Though considering the nature of a cartoon series (especially one that will take place at a specific time in the Buffy canon), it's doubtful that spoilage will be anything more than brief description of the episodes. However, as soon as more solid information gets released, you can expect to find it here.

BTVS: Animated Series A Go?
Hercules is also reporting that Alyson Hannigan was doing some voicework for the animated series. Does this mean it's a go? I would think it's not a given at this time, more than likely she may have done this in order to shop around the series. As far as I'm aware, a full pilot was never completed.

BTVS: Watcher's Guide 3
After waiting more than 3 years, it appears that the final volume of 'The Watcher's Guide' will be released soon. According to my notes, it will be out on either June 7th or July 1st. At just under $13, it's a bargain. You can use the following link to pre-order, and a small portion of your purchase will go towards supporting the site.
If you haven't picked up the first two, they are also priced at just under $13 currently. I have used the first two so much over the past few years, I may just have to pick up a couple of fresh copies at this point.

BTVS: Joss Whedon To Do X-Men
I absolutely don't know how to categorize this, but I guess for the moment I'll consider it Buffy news.
It is being reported that Joss Whedon will be writing a new X-Men title for Marvel Comics. Entitled 'Astonishing X-Men', it will be written by Joss for at least 1 year with art by John Cassaday. The only place I've seen this reported is at Bureau 42, and I haven't gotten confirmation from another source.
Earlier this month I posted an interview with Joe Quesada in the News section, where he seemed to deny this rumor. He stated quite plainly that...
Which apparently, would seem to be true, as they will be doing a new title instead of taking over 'New X-Men'.
Update: Wizard confirms this and has an interview with Joss Whedon on their site.

ATS/BTVS: News Wrap 1/29
The Futon Critic reports on the contents of the 'Angel: Season 3" DVD set. Looks to have a lot of interesting extras.
Also mentioned in the above Development Update, and as reported by SciFi Wire , Fox has requested a pilot for a new series. Titled 'Point Pleasant', it will tell the story of a mysterious girl who is found washed up on the beach of a small town. It will have a supernatural touch, and be produced by Marti Noxon and written by John McLaughlin. Noxon's own series, 'Still Life', was supposed to be a mid-season replacement. However, there is still no word from Fox on when the series might make it to air.

ATS/BTVS: News Wrap 12/5
Since the overwhelming majority of voters in the Yahoo! Poll have been asking for more news, rather than less, I'm going to start recapping series news as it comes out. This will cover both general news stories about the shows, actors, and other points of interest. This won't necessarily be daily, it's just going to depend on the news of the day. In addition, rather than having multiple posts on a topic, I will recap everything in a single post.
The cast and crew recently celebrated the filming of the 100th episode, SciFi Wire has an article covering the event. Zap2It covers David's directing debut (Episode 10), and lets slip the date of it's airing. 'Soul Purpose' will hit the airwaves on January 21st, which means that we'll probably see the Harmony episode on January 14th.
TV Gal at Zap2It, also has some info on what Nick Brendan and Emma Caufield are up to post-Buffy. Both are signed to do ABC Family Movies in 2004.
You know how much I love ABC Family movies (TV Gal + ABC Family Movies = TLA). We already have Brandon (Jason Priestley) and Susan (Emma Caulfield) reuniting in January's "I Want to Marry Ryan Banks" with Bradley Cooper. And now Nicholas Brendon, Majandra Delfino and Ethan Embry will star in "Celeste in the City," which is set to premiere next March. Since ABC Family seems to be on a one-network campaign to employ all the former actors of the "Buffy" universe, may I humbly suggest the following: I would love to see Amber Benson, Julie Benz, Danny Strong, Tom Lenk and Juliet Landau in upcoming movies. Thanks very much.

Site News: Buffy Season 6 DVD?
I've gotten a number of e-mails about Amazon taking pre-orders for Season Six of Buffy on DVD. I've known that the pre-order link has been up for a while, but hesitated to mention it due to Amazon's habit of posting, then pulling pre-order links for Fox DVD's.
So I'm posting the link, hopefully it will be active all the way through the release date.
Which to be honest, is perhaps the longest intentional gap between pre-order and release date that I've seen. It won't actually arrive until early July of next year.

Buffy News: John Ritter
Last night, John Ritter passed away at the age of 54. Although well-known to the world for playing the role of Jack Tripper on the sitcom Three's Company, he was equally well-known to Buffy fans as Joyce's evil robot boyfriend, Ted. I grew up with him on Three's Company, and enjoyed his brief visit to Sunnydale, I think one of his best, and most overlooked, performances of the last few years was on 'Felicity', where he played the role of Ben's father on the series. For more information about his actor and his career, you can read more about him and his career at CNN.com.

Good Joss Interview
It seems that quite a few people spoke with Joss at the WB Press Party. The Boston Herald has perhaps the best interview I've read so far, which has a few minor spoilers. Joss talks more about Spike's move to 'Angel' (and answers at least one question about his souled status), a little about the direction of the 'Angel' storyline this season, and still expresses hope in not only a spin-off, but one with a certain Slayer who one would think will be busy elsewhere.
