A Whedon-less Buffyverse continues
May 27, 2009 | 2:51 a.m.
Yes, we know it’s Joss Whedon’s world, but slayers belong to us all. On the heels of the news that the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” movie’s original director, Fran Rubel Kuzui, and her husband, Kaz Kuzui, are working on a “reboot,” we wanted to see who else were major slayers in the Buffyverse.
Though almost a couple of thousand more were created after Willow’s stunt with the Scythe in Season 7, there are still a few slayers who stood out. Because the comic book was known as Season 8, we can take that into account as well and take a look at the ones that have made a mark in the series’ mythology.
The announcement included the tidbit that Whedon would apparently not be involved in the filmmaking (he was reached by Entertainment Weekly and had only this comment: “I hope it’s cool.”) It was also announced that the new movie would not include “Buffy” characters we’ve grown to know from the show’s seven-year run.
