After wrapping production on "The Avengers," Joss Whedon took twelve days to shoot a modern adaptation of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing." No word one what, if anything, is changed from the original script. It will be the first film produced by Whedon's micro-studio Bellwether Pictures.

"The film features a stellar cast of beloved (or soon to be beloved) actors – some of them veterans of Shakespearean theater, some completely new to the form. But all dedicated to the idea that this story bears retelling, that this dialogue is as fresh and intoxicating as any being written, and that the joy of working on a passion project surrounded by dear friends, admired colleagues and an atmosphere of unabashed rapture far outweighs their hilariously miniature paychecks," says the press release.

The movie stars almost everyone we've come to expect from a Whedon production: Amy Acker, Nathan Fillion, Sean Maher, and Alexis Denisof.

"The text is to me a deconstruction of the idea of love," says Whedon, "which is ironic, since the entire production is a love letter – to the text, to the cast, even to the house it's shot in."

"Lockout" is technically not a good movie, but I can't deny that it was tons of fun. "Cabin in the Woods" is clearly the superior of the two, though. Still, two thoroughly enjoyable sci-fi/fantasy movies in the same week is pretty cool. Which one will you see?

Joss Whedon was recently asked who would win in a fight between Black Widow and Buffy Summers. He answered in explicit detail.

"Buffy would go easy at first, but as soon as Natasha popped her with a Widow Sting, she'd start bringing some slayer brawn to the fray. Natasha's fast, but a couple of good connects and she's wobbling, possibly something broken — she whips out her glock and now Buffy's dodging — right where Natasha wants her. Natasha shoots the cable holding the steel barrels and they tumble onto Buffy, nearly burying her — Buffy just arcs out of the way, grabbing the splintered cable and swinging directly onto Natasha, a bullet grazing her cheek as her feet land hard on the Russian's shoulders, sending her back flat – crack! – on the floor, Buffy wrenching the gun away and tossing it, fist ready for the final strike. Natasha, struggling to stay conscious, says the fight's over. Buffy agrees, but Natasha explains: She poisoned Buffy hours ago. That waitress that brought her salad …? Natasha smiles. The poison is dormant — 'til it's activated by adrenaline. Buffy's eyes narrow. "Too bad I didn't use any." Wham! Natasha's out for the count, and Buffy's heading — slowly — to Willow for a mystical cleanse.

That'd be my first guess."

Do you agree with Whedon's version of how the fight would play out, or do you think Black Widow would kick Buffy's ass?
