Apparently Xander’s “seer” ability transpired off screen to Nicolas Brendon; the man that played our silly, yet oh so lovable, Xander Harris on Buffy. Recently, Brendon commented on the forthcoming movie reboot of the show that is full speed ahead without the show’s creator Joss Whedon. Whedon is the first cast member to speak out and had this to say,
“I hope their vampires don’t glitter. … You know, listen…I think it’s a mistake, I think that it’s trying to kind of—they have to reach a whole completely new fanbase. And we already have that fanbase. So it’s going to really be hard to kind of do that. But you know, everyone: They remade The Flintstones. Twice, I think.”
Ah, it’s nice to see that Brendon still has that snarky attitude. So what do you guys think, does Brendon really see the bigger picture here or is he just ignorant to the fact that a reboot could be done well??
