Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer know that the series has continued into the present via the magic of comic books and courtesy of Dark Horse Comics.

I don’t think shawarma has ever been as popular as it is these days in our post-Avengers world. Honestly, how many of you were familiar with the Arabian dish before the movie? How many of you desperately Googled where you could grab some locally? Shawarma fever struck the nation and all thanks to one man, Joss Whedon. But where did he come up with the exotic food Iron Man craved after falling through an inter-dimensional portal and crashing to Earth? Xander. Or rather, Nicholas Brendon when he auditioned for the role on Buffy The Vampire Slayer all those years ago.

All credit goes to the diligent work of super Buffy fan, J.P. Gagen for unearthing this clip from bonus features for Buffy The Vampire Slayer‘s Chosen Collection. In the clip below listen as Whedon and Brendon fondly remember his audition and the one word that got Brendon the gig,

And, apparently, inspired what was the most talked about post-credit scene ever. That scene, which if you’ve somehow missed, can be watched below. Do think Joss actually recalled that audition when coming up with Robert Downey Jr.’s now infamous line or has he just become a shawarma fanatic since then?

A Buffy Reunion? What?!


Well, kind of.  Next month, the actors who played Spike, Xander, Cordelia, Harmony and Glory will be appearing together again.  Holy shit!  This is the best news since we found out that Joss Whedon was getting the Avengers.  The event called Wizard World New England where the gang will be appearing will be held October 15-17 at Hynes Hall in Boston. “This is one of the biggest collections of ‘Buffy’ stars in one place,” said Gareb Shamus, Wizard World CEO.  The stars will be doing meet and greets as well as signing autographs at this epic event.  So grab your “slap wrist” bracelets and let’s pretend like it’s the 90s all over again!
