Five Joss Whedon projects you never got to see. To mark Joss' 50th birthday the other day, Digital Spy lists five of his most promising projects that never saw the light of day.

Can't say I've ever heard of #5.

No mention of "Goners."
Nor Grampire!
Or the second Buffy movie that was supposed to come out in '99 :(.
Plus the Buffy Animated Series and the Spike movie.
And the Serenity animated prequel.
You can't do this list and not mention Goners. No no no. (Also, I'm pretty sure it was The Serving Girl, wasn't it?)
Sighs, the things that are not on the list....
Yes I think it was 'The Serving Girl'.

And from the Q&A Eliza did at at UK Con recently she said that she kind of regrets doing Tru Calling over Faith the Vampire Slayer.
I actually quite enjoyed Tru Calling, especially after they added Jason Priestly - though I did often pretend that it was Faith having some sort of dream.
Yes, definitely The Serving Girl and was there talk of doing it on Broadway or am I mixing it up with a desire of his to do a musical on Broadway?
And why no Goners?
Haven't looked yet - so, everything I've ever heard of is not on this list? Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo-kay!

Having read it, I exagerrate, of coruse!

I never heard of Joss' Batman project and other new thing to me was that, as much as Nick B, Summer has ended her previous carreer due to an injury and begone to acting.
Poor DC, now, after the Avengers, they should kick themselves, especially, since the dificulties to dealing with WW and her not so feminist origins, while they had probably the best writer to the job in their hands.
Totally relying on my memory, Lioness, but as I recall Serving Girl was meant specifically for film.

And the article fails to mention that it was about... books, I think? Or libraries? Something to do with books.
Man, I'd love to see Whedon's Batman. Seriously.

I was sort of excited to hear him do Wonder Woman, but Diana never had the appeal that Batman had. (And yes, Bruce is very much a Marvel Character in DC.)

However, even though he's handling him in The Avengers, I'd love to see Joss do a Cap solo project.
Wait, there was a second Buffy movie? Should we be relieved it wasn't released?
I believe the Buffy movie was more a humor of fans and press, from wich we get that SMG affirmation about shoting Buffy was already making a movie with a smaller duration.
