Joss Whedon probably has more rumors swirling about his upcoming works than anyone else in the industry- although that may be the case because the man tries to DO more at one time than most. Chief among the popular rumors is one that contains a fair amount of hard fact, as well- the thought of a return to the Buffy universe for some movie lovin'. Joss has indicated that he's interested in the possibility someday, hinting at possible direct-to-DVD titles focused around characters other than Buffy herself. The rumor got yet another lift today as David Janollari, president of entertainment at The WB, told reporters that the network is eager to air a movie based on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer character of Spike. Marsters, the actor who plays Spike, has also expressed interest, if the project can get moving before he ages significantly, since vampires are supposed to be ageless and whatnot. The challenge at this point seems to be getting Joss on board, as the man is a whirling dervish of projects at the moment. Although now that all three of the necessary parties involved have expressed vocal committment to the idea, fans can certainly find a great deal to be hopeful about.
