An interview with Joss Whedon on The Onion A.V. Club has Joss giving updates on several of his the projects he has on the go, from TV and movies to his comic book writing. He’s doing a great run on X-Men, and I can’t recommend enough the collected hardcover collection of his first 12 issues, Astonishing X-Men. Makes you wish Whedon could get his hands on the movie franchise.

“I never would have killed Wesley if we hadn’t been cancelled.”
The Serenity Collector's Edition 2-Disc DVD goes on sale August 21st, and includes a Feature Commentary with Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion (Mal), Adam Baldwin (Jane), Summer Glau (River) and Ron Glass (Book), in addition to all sorts of behind the scenes goodies and deleted scenes.

We’re finally going to get that Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) spin-off movie, currently optioned by BBC. “Ripper” will be about the pre-Buffy Giles, before he became a Watcher.

Look for Oz to return in the Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 8 comic. Faith returns in this month’s “episode”.
