CBR TV @ CCI 2011: Joss Whedon on “Buffy: Season 9″ & “The Avengers”

Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and director of Marvel Studios’ “The Avengers,” spoke with CBR’s Kiel Phegley at Comic-Con International in San Diego about the upcoming “Buffy: Season Nine” comic series, juggling his work on “Avengers” with the comic’s new season and his plans to dial back the widescreen action from “Season Eight,” returning to the character’s roots as well as the level of interaction fans can expect between the various Buffyverse titles.

Whedon also discusses the influences of the various comic incarnations of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will and has had on his “Avengers” film as well as the feeling of having the Avengers assemble on set, in costume, while he and the actors all geek out.

    Not really a fan. u00a0I think he’s enough of a fan of himself, he doesn’t need anyone else. u00a0I’ll go see Avengers, but not because of his involvement.

    Gee, I hope he gives the movie more attention than the comic book continuation of his old TV series.u00a0 Whedon was/is a good writer, but anyone who watched “Serenity” has to question whether he’s up to directing this film.u00a0 Was Kevin Smith not available?u00a0 :p

      I thought “Serenity” was incredible. He’s more than a match for “The Avengers.”

    As a huge fan of “Buffy”, I know he’s JOSS WHEDON, but I didn’t like Sesason Eight so much, I really hope the new one is better.

    I would love it if Joss Whedon produced a new Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie with the original cast.u00a0 It would be great if there could be a Dollhouse and Angel crossover.u00a0 I do not read the comic books.u00a0I do not like the idea of Giles being dead in the comic book.u00a0Therefore I only consider the TV seasons as part of the Buffy canon.u00a0 Since it was left with a cliffhanger anything could possibly happen in the storyline.u00a0

    I just want to add my admiration to the ocean of adulation Mr Whedon already enjoys. And I want to know whether Mr Whedon has a “Firefly” -like series in his bag of tricks. I would watch it.
