I don’t know about you, but I am loving that 2013 is turning out to be William Shakespeare’s comeback year. It just feels right, you know? We didn’t see him for a little while, and now he’s back. I’m still excited about seeing Ed Westwick with long black hair as Tybalt in the Romeo and Juliet trailer, and now I have this trailer to satisfy my Elizabethan hunger. More

If you thought Shakespeare didn’t exist outside of your high school English class, think again (and maybe get some counseling). Good ole Willy is making a comeback. And if you thought Joss Whedon could only make superhero movies and underrated sci-fi TV series, you should think again, again. More
Morgan Spurlock‘s new documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope doesn’t come out til April 6, but already I want to thank him for taking geeks seriously. More
Now that House has been cancelled, creator David Shore is working to make an ending that will fit the show’s tone and provide closure for the fans. Here are some other series (including Nip/Tuck and Dollhouse) that got that same chance, and how they ended. More
Gee, there’s been an awful lot of news about cancelled television shows this week, hasn’t there? The first of the new fall shows are getting cancelled, shows that had been cancelled for years are suddenly coming back to life a la Frankenstein’s monster (appropriate, given that it’s Halloween season)… there’s just so much activity! So you know what? Let’s give those cancelled televisions something to do with themselves. In fact, let’s get them drunk. Because boy, won’t that be hilarious? More
We’re not sure who was more excited — Neil to be honored, or the fan on whose face he drew a handlebar mustache. More
This makes us wish we lived in LA: Next Thursday Neil Patrick Harris will be honored with his very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, with buddies Jason Segel and Joss Whedon as the guest speakers! More

How we can tell that this cheesy video is from the unaired pilot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
- Sarah Michelle Gellar is way more bubbly than even first-season Buffy is; they obviously darkened her character a bit for the pilot that did air.
- The costumes and effects are shoddy, even for 1997.
Were you one of the people who first tuned in to Firefly back in 2002, or did you not find out about Joss Whedon‘s incredible space western until the movie Serenity hit theaters? Regardless, this infographic from CarSort is the ultimate way to measure how big a fan (Browncoat) you are: How many of these facts did you already know? Here’s one: Zac Efron had a small cameo in one episode (though we knew that one already). A few of these stumped even us! More
Thanks to Whedonesque (the premiere Joss Whedon fansite) for posting this great story from satirist Dave Rhodes. Although a lot of Dave’s writing is fictional, he’s started to post true stories from his various odd jobs, including taxi driver, sailor, and TV extra. For the latter, he was lucky enough to work on the last episode ever shot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. More
Now is the time for some moviemaking magic: Marvel Studios has until August 15 to turn a stretch of downtown Ohio into Times Square. Yes, the one from New York City. Movieline reports that shooting of Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers begins then, presumably involving scenes where the superheroes meet at one of the S.H.I.E.L.D. offices in Manhattan. We’re guessing that shooting in NYC cost way too much, and Cleveland was a better choice for indoor scenes. It’s just ironic, since Captain America: The First Avenger managed to shoot in the real Times Square. More
At San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel handed out these amazing concept posters for Joss Whedon‘s Avengers movie at their booth. Like a triptych, the seven posters — featuring Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), and five others — make up one big illustration of the Avengers. While there’s no sign of the movie’s big enemies, this is the clearest look we’ve had at the superheroes who’ve assembled under the always-badass Samuel L. Jackson and S.H.I.E.L.D. (the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division). More
