(Note: This post contains spoilers for the tv and comic book versions of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer was and is the greatest television show in existence. Convo ended, it is what it is. Even season six (that was the season Buffy battled depression, so she was letting Spike bend her over balconies at the Bronze) was better than most anything else on your screen vee. The show ended in 2003 after seven seasons, and its creator Joss Whedon continued it to middling success in comic book form for five more. (Dude, Xander and Dawn got together. As a couple. Can you hear my frown?) The huge news this weekend is that Joss is executive-producing a new version for Fox 21 TV Studios, which is the cable/streaming division of 20th Century Fox TV, according to Deadline. (No, really – Dawn and Xander even HAD A BABY.) Continue reading
Nerd King Joss Whedon’s ex wife Kai Cole is Not. The. One. She loves the smell of napalm in the morning and she doesn’t mind a whiff at lunch or after supper either. Yesterday she put Joss on BLAST with hot, hot fire words and blew up his spot like Michael Bay with an arsenal of nukes and walked away from the ashes in slow motion.
I’ll give em’ one thing, that’s a rad poster. San Diego Comic-Con happened. It should actually be called “San Diego Blockbuster Movie Tentpole Franchise Preview-Con” because it looks like actual comic books gave movie studios a whole bunch of material to work with and then left the building awhile ago. Do they even HAVE actual comics at SDCC? DC announced a whole mess of superhero movies coming down the pike (via Digital Spy). We’re talking YEARS of super-hero movies. And yet, still no Wonder Twins flick. For shame! Here’s the round-up. (For those of you who don’t care, I’m sure we’ll eventually have a non-geek post soon.) Continue reading
Zack Snyder was in charge of directing and co-writing Justice League, the upcoming all-the-superheroes follow-up to the not-so-great Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Principal photography has finished filming on Justice League, and it’s currently in post-production. However, Zack Snyder isn’t able to finish it and he told The Hollywood Reporter that he and his wife Deborah Snyder, who is a producer on the film, are leaving it to deal with the death of their daughter.
Joss Whedon declared over a year ago that he broke up with Marvel because making the second Avengers movie nearly put him in a grave. It looks like he’s finally found a rebound piece in DC. Joss will be the mastermind behind a standalone Batgirl movie.
Joss Whedon totally fucked up. Now Goopy Paltrow really won’t send him a holiday gift basket including a Baccarat crystal vessel filled with air from Jesus’ actual birth place, a gift certificate for a peppermint-scented vagina steaming session, a $120 tube of toothpaste and $600 night cream made from the sperm of a virgin snow white reindeer (it gets rid of the wrinkles that grow on your face from you having to clean and cook yourself on December 26th since you were gracious enough to send your servants home for Boxing Day). Big mistake, Joss!
As Pajiba points out, Goopy Paltrow was not in the second Avengers movie. And at a press conference to promote the first Avengers movie, Joss Whedon told reporters that Robert Downey Jr. had to convince him to put Goopy in it. Joss also pushed hard for Hillary Clinton during the elections, and after Donald Trump won, Goopy mouth farted about how it’s such an exciting time to be an American. That bring us to two days ago when Joss tweeted a picture of Goopy’s latest cookbook It’s All Easy (long title: It’s All Easy When You Have Millions Of Dollars, A Staff Of Twelve, Mario Batali’s Private Number And A Totally Organic Garden Tended To By A Family Of Fourth-Generation Amish Farmers Who Live Out Back). Joss doesn’t know where to start with this book.

Grown gazillionaires are just like us! They try to start fights on Twitter when they’re bored.
Because I’d love a last-minute entry into the Most Random Celebrity Feud Of The Year contest, I hope that Goopy responds by telling Joss that to think, she was going to send him a locally-sourced organic corn husk man wig to cover up his bald spot. I mean, a locally-sourced organic corn husk wig is what’s on her head in that picture, right?
