|Once More With Feeling...again? - 24/05/2002|
|Aint It Cool has pulled a number of excepts from the UPN message boards where Buffy creator Joss Whedon talks about what is going to happen in the next season of the show. Most importantly? "We're easing back on the goats. There've been complaints".|
In related Buffy news, James Marsters (Spike) was asked about there being further "special" episodes like 'Hush' or 'Once More, With Feeling' in a recent interview with SFX magazine. It seems that as far as he knows there won't be, however a new six-song musical which Marsters claims is "twice as good" is currently in development by Joss Whedon. The big revelation from the interview is that an episode next season will require the cast to learn to speak backwards, so that the film to be reversed part way through the story. Sounds interesting, although I liked it best in Twin Peaks and Red Dwarf...

"The mid-to-late '60s is my favorite period, the period where the innovations created at the beginning of the '60s were maturing, and Stan was unbelievably writing 12 titles a month and relying on the best, most innovative artists in the business who were doing the work of their lives."It's a great read, make sure you also check out Tim's artwork for the cover to Spider-Man: Blue #4.

|Marvel Movie Update - 3/05/2002|
|Comics Continuum has landed a promotional photo of Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Joe Quesada visiting the Daredevil movie set in Burbank Califonia. Quesada is pictured with director Mark Steven Johnson and Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige. I just loved Quesada's work on Marvel Knights Daredevil (especially the Echo saga) although a worthy replacement has definitely been found in Alex Maleev, who brings a new dimension to the title with his dark and gritty style. |
In other related news, it is rumoured that the Hulk movie teaser (featuring Eric Bana) will be included before most showings of Spider-Man. Here's hoping that this also happens in Australian cinemas!
