I don't think we're ever going to see a Angel and/or Buffy film. Unless there is
definitive positive news, this will be the last item posted here.

Update from TVGuide.com's Ask Matt column, dated 2/7/05:
Question: Do you believe that WB ever had any interest in the idea of telemovies for Angel or
are they frantically dissembling? I, for one, would be very interested in a telemovie showcasing
the prodigious talents of Mr. James Marsters, reprising the role of Spike. I'm very surprised that WB
claims never to have considered this idea as likely to be popular. What are your thoughts on this
Matt: When WB let Angel get away â€” a mistake if you look at the network's current impoverished
landscape â€” the suggestion of possible movies revisiting the Angel or Buffy worlds was no doubt
lip service intended to assuage the grief of Joss Whedon fans everywhere. (Didn't work.) And since
Joss has for the moment suspended his TV operations, it's pretty clear that this was a pipe dream
at best, but more likely just hollow PR from WB with no basis in reality. Of course I'd like to see a
Spike movie, or series, or even just have him show up in an episode of something random. But
I'm not counting on it.
Since Matt Roush is usually pretty much on top of his game, I'd trust this. Of course, if there's any
other news regarding any Buffy or Angel related series or movie, it'll be updated - in big huge
letters - on both sites!
Updated: There are some chinks in the wall between us and the Buffyverse [although Angelverse
may be more appropriate in this case] ~ The WB's bossman has stated publicly that an Angel
movie is being discussed with Joss and cast. Go to news to read more. This comes on top of
James Marsters statements on an Austrailan talk show about 4 movies; click here for that story.
My own diatribe from 5/20/04:There are rumors that made-for-TV Angel/Buffy
movies, possibly another spin-off featuring Spike and/or Illyria, are being discussed,
however, David Boreanaz is apparently not really on board, unless the project is a
theatrical film, and Sarah Michelle Geller is unlikely to participate. I, personally,
would have absolutely no problem watching any Buffy-verse incarnation
incorporating the mythos and characters -those other than Angel and Buffy- we've all
come to know and love [or hate as the case may be!], and will be sending a letter of
encouragement to Joss Whedon letting him know the same thing. Think about it -
would you watch a movie, a series of movies, or even another Buffy-verse series
incorporating any or all of these characters, from both shows: Wesley [well, now,
that might be difficult, but not impossible in the Buffy-verse; just ask Buffy or Darla!],
Spike, Illyria/Fred, Lorne, Gunn, Faith [guest shots?], Willow [we can hope for an
appearance or guest shot, right?], Andrew, Giles, Xander, Dawn, Connor and even
Harmony? There are so many other supporting actors and characters that were
introduced on both shows that would provide interesting storylines, they can't
possibly all be listed here. I would happily watch; hell, keeping me away would be
In any event, spoilers on this page are now about these possible projects, which at
this time, are still just rumors, and should be treated as such.
