Remember last week when Warner Bros. confirmed that a 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' reboot was on the way without the involvement of creator Joss Whedon? Surely you do. How could you forget the day the internet exploded in a combination of rage and madness? How could you forget Whedon's response to the crisis at hand, wherein he retreated behind a cloud of sadness and witty self-deprecation?

Ah, but the plot thickens! It turns out that Whedon was offered the chance to helm the reboot of his beloved franchise, but he turned it down. At least so says the trusty Hollywood Reporter.

Now, Whedon fans (and there are plenty of you out there), before you go off bemoaning what could have been, sit down for a moment, think quietly and ponder this one simple question: "Do I really want Joss Whedon to go back to the 'Buffy' well? Do I really want to see him squander his talents remaking a character and a universe he already perfected a decade ago?"

For Whedon to limp back to 'Buffy' when he's got Marvel's 'The Avengers' on his plate -- well, that's just silly.
