Speaking with Sci-Fi Wire, "Buffy" creator Joss Whedon confirmed he's ready to return to the Buffyverse with television films once he receives a green light from The WB, home of Angel, or another network - "We haven't really heard anything. Obviously, there's been a regime change at The WB. The fans are interested. I'm interested. I don't think either [Buffy star] Sarah [Michelle Gellar] or [Angel star] David [Boreanaz] would want to do it. But I think there's about 10 other characters I could name who would be totally worthy of movies. And I'm just waiting for somebody to say yea or nay".

Meanwhile he also talked about rumours that he'd take on the helm of the third "X-Men" movie now that incumbent director Bryan Singer has departed for the "Superman" project - "Nobody has approached me about the X-Men franchise. Would I like to make an X-Men movie? That'd be bitchin'. And I really think that, you know, I actually really like those actors, and I really like those characters, and I think there's a lot that could be done with it, and I think it would be a romp. But I'm not setting my sights on that".

Thanks to 'Patrick'.
