This is Not Awesome: Why in the hell would we want a Whedonless Buffy movie?

23 Nov

Let’s see we had one movie that was supposedly cut to death, we also had one seven season show that’s almost universally loved, and all of this was done by the one man who has a last name people have turned into a trademark for everything he even thinks about, and now we’re gonna have his pet project taken over by a studio without his involvement?
