    I never would have thought Whedon would adapt this for the screen, yet it makes sense.

    lol the high-minded pricks in the comment section on Deadline Hollywood are crapping all over this... I imagine that means I'll like it quite a bit. :o:up:

    It's Whedon. He has a reason for everything. I think he kind of is doing a kind of satirical version almost, hence the Shakesperian verse in American accents.

    This has always been my number one most anticipated film of 2012. I'm beyond excited after seeing the trailer. :woot:

    Do I think it will be the greatest cinematic achievement of 2013? No lol. I just am really looking forward to it! Cast looks great and Whedon is a good director.

    Angel was my favorite Whedon show so it's great to see Wes and Fred in the leads but wish he utilized Boreanaz more in his casting.

    I'm really hot and cold for shakespeare adaptions. Sometimes I love them, sometimes the language really gets on my nerves and I find it a drag.

    I'm hoping this will be one of my better experiences.

    Same here. I love Shakespeare, but I usually prefer to read his works rather than watch them. I know, that's strange, but I like the way my mind interprets the works.

    Still, it's an awesome cast and the fanboy in me can't resist the call.
