Buffy The Vampire Slayer” creator Joss Wheden is preparing a reboot of the wildly popular TV series of fearless young heroes battling the creepy supernatural forces of the nether world. Whedon will team up again with Midnight, Texas showrunner Monica Owusu-Breen, his co-executive producer on “Agents of Shield.” They plan to feature a black actress in the starring Buffy role

any actual fans of the show though?

i had not seen much of it but even when it was on it seemed like major cheese.
was it supposed to be that way?

i just know that there are people that are pretty serious about buffy. hardcore fans.
i just dont see it

nothing vampire or vampire hunter has really been super awesome for me though.

didnt even get into true blood and i should have cause you know. anna paquin. hbo.
but i wasnt into it

The Mandela effect crowd?

I honestly can't recall a good vampire series... Few.good movies but the majority of the stuff is, as you said. Cheesy.

I liked Angel better than Buffy.

The whole Buffy/Spike romance was crapola.

Right people!

Lets rewrite Blade with a white guy.

Not in the slightest , it's just more dross to brainwash the masses , it'll be glossy , heavy on moral narrative and written by 12 year olds
There should be a health warning on this nonsense as there is on fatty foods.

BACK IN BLACK......

I never got into Buffy- and I was all about the vampires! But I wanted Anne Rice vampires, or the lore and legends of Vlad Tepes and all that Jazz. Buffy was silly to me.

However, I’d wager that if I’d have given it a chance I may have gotten sucked in.

Are people really even going to bitch about this now? I'd get it if they made Gandalf black. Or a black Viking, that sounds stupid. But Buffy seems so American, modern-day and not too serious. Couldn't care less.

Rewriting film and televsion for political pandering is stupid.

This is just the latest example of a growing trend.

'White' washing American culture.

I liked Buffy and my wife loved Buffy.
Honesty don't think it was a wildly popular show either. More of a cult following.
Maybe I'm wrong, cuz from what I hear people don't like strong female characters.

Anyway, I can't say that I'm thrilled by the idea. They rarely do a good job of carrying on the legacy in reboots.

And anyone that watched the show knows that there have been multiple black slayers throughout the canon of the show so that will not be an issue.
Unless they recast the character of Buffy as a black girl. Don't do it. She's not.
Make the show a continuation of the origional with a new slayer of whatever race or color you want.

Post like these is how trump is going to win in 2020

Cultural appropriation is evil

Buffy becomes black....hey isn’t that cultural app....stop right there, you racist!!!

Huh, goes and votes for Trump

What are the odds that all the main vampire group are a bunch of white police and/or ICE officers....

Here's an honest question.

Where are all the brown hero's and heroines?

Or is all Hollylame is concerned with is black and white.

Buffy was more of a soap opera than anything. There really wasn't much "vampire slaying".

My wife watched so much Buffy we had to get a new TV!

Buffy's face was burned into the old screen! You didn't even have to turn the TV "on" to see Buffy's face!

Now it's Monk, Reba and Mom

Oh, and KarTRASHians, and Real Goldigging Whores of Bumfuk
