Here We Go, Megan Fox As Buffy?

Why do all the comic book movie rumors circle around her?

It seems like its been a while since we've had a Megan Fox/comic book movie rumor.  I could be wrong but I think the last one was in April over She-Hulk.  We've seen the news that there are plans to reboot Buffy the Vampire Slayer (without Joss Whedon's involvement) and now the rumors are beginning.

This is strictly in the rumor stage.  It is too early to even talk about casting since production hasn't started.  A studio hasn't even come on board with the movie either.  Movieweb reported that Cinefools mentioned this rumor.  The link to Cinefools is coming up as "unavailable" so who knows where they're getting their information.  It was mentioned that a rumor has been "circulating the industry" and Fox is being considered.

What are your thoughts?  Is this just another crazy Megan Fox rumor?  Would she consider even doing the movie?  Would she even make a good Buffy?  Since it's a reboot, does Buffy have to be a blonde?  Will Megan Fox stop getting attached to all the female comic book character rumors?

hmm good idea? - I don't no ;/

People will get over her, once haters just stop talking, Haters make you Famous... People like that are making her famous lol

Megan Fox as Buffy...no.  The role needs to be played by someone who looks good and can actually bring some emotion to the character.  I hate that Whedon may not be involved, but maybe the studio can get a decent actress to play the part.

Oh god, no!

As Faith....maybe as Buffy NO

I wish she just get a role, it seems shes has more rumors about parts than actual roles.  She was okay in Transformers, but other than that I've only seen her in one other movie.  Would she be a good Buffy? Not sure, I've never really gotten into the character/series.  Will she stop getting attached to comic book character rumors? Not sure, but I read she was being considered for the role of Rainmaker in the Gen 13 movie.

So is Megan Fox in every movie? It seems like she's had offers to be in every film for the rest of time.

I hope to god that its another crazy rumor. I don't see why people even like her... she can't act.

She would be a horrible pick for buffy, anyone would be other than sarah michelle gellar.

Unless Joss Whedon is leading this movie, I will boycott it to no end. It would be a damn shame to see this movie made honestly. Let the amazing legacy alone... or at least in Joss Whedon's hands.

Posted by Dupe

Why on earth would she play Buffy... She can't act, doesn't look like her..

I'm just proud of myself for finding a pic of Megan holding a stake.

It must have taken hours to pour through your folder of Megan Fox pictures. Just jokes.
Posted by Secret Identity

Maybe its a clever ploy. Get her in EVERY rumour mill available then when she finaly does get a part in a comic book film nobody will beleve it. Then BAM! she's in a kick ass comic book film and back in the rumour mill lol

Posted by Static Shock

I only see her as Huntress. Nothing more.

Edited by csimon

there is only one Buffy and I think we all know who she is


Ps I also Wish people would get over her already
Posted by LastSon1027
@G-Man: I didn't even notice the stake til you said something. Bravo!

As far as this rumor goes, I will reply in the same way I reply to every Megan Fox rumor. They could cast her as Clifford the Big Red Dog and I would go see that shit!!!!!!!!!!

At least all of those people could play "quirky".  Megan couldn't play anything that even somewhat resembled a character that isn't trying to get in some person's pants.

I totally agree with you I could definitely see her as the Huntress, but not a chance as Buffy.

What about the whole Tomb Raider one from May?

PLEASE don't bring that up.  Anything with her as a title character is not something to be too proud of.

And the thing with movies with large "nerd followings" is that they don't have to rely heavily on trolls like Megan Fox for the movie to be successful, so why not cast someone that can... act?

hellz no in all the buffy movies out there shes always depicted as blond megan fox is not blond ok and you'd have to be on crack not to think about that crucial detail about buffy

@White Mage
Fox and Gellar both suck at acting..Megan just looks better.I watched Buffy for Willow,Faith,and Spike.Everyone else could have not been their for all I gave a crap.People are acting like Megan can mess up the terrible job Sarah Michelle Gellar was already doing.

Yea Rebooting buffy would be like redoing the godfather or titanic (yea I'm exaggerating just a little). But any sequel would be crap. And doing it without Joss Whedon would just be sad. Megan Fox isn't even a good actress!!! She's only good for playing slutty girls. No offense to her but when have you seen her in deep roles? Besides I don't think Joss Whedon or anyone who worked on buffy would allow them to remake it.

Edited by captainrage

I never liked SMG as Buffy... She was too angular.. And Megan Fox looks more like a vampire..

edit---
Someone just Tumblr'd this, which made me lolz..

Megan Fox is basically just the Hollywood version of that one woman you know who is completely awful to other women but really nice to guys.

katoleary:

And then your boyfriend thinks you’re totally misunderstanding her (and that she actually is bisexual, not just some phony looking for male attention).  I hate her.

THIS!  Kat, as always, you hit the nail on the head and say it better than I ever could.  I HATE Megan Fox.


Posted by Elixir95

Really not.  The whole point of the conception of Buffy being small and blonde was to contrast what happens to these characters in horror movies when they're usually killed first.  Also, anyone seen the poster rip off for "Jennifer's Body" where Fox plays a demon/cannibal?  She does look like one and less like a feisty kick ass girl.

Posted by Nahero

well some reboots are ok like changing nick furys appearance into samuel L jacksons likeness was an example that really worked but i doubt megan fox's portrayl will be very good

Posted by Korg

It's an amusing unsubstantiated rumor and all, but I wouldn't even care if this did happen. A re-launch of Buffy is unnecessary, and would undoubtedly be trash. Better to waste Megan Fox's time than an actress with more talent. Plus, having Megan Fox in the movie would be better for box office sales than all the hardcore Buffy fans who would take exception to this anyway.

Ewww

I really don't have a preference

Edited by The Psyentist

Oh, gosh. Please. Are there no other attractive actresses in Hollywood?

Good thing this is JUST a rumour.

Edited by raidingkvatch

Buffy minus Joss Whedon? Seriously what's the point, that man's extraordinary talent is what made that show so awesome

Posted by lemywinks

na I really don't think that megan will be picked to play buffy. Alot of these rumors about her being in every film that involves the comic industry in one way or another is just a ploy to get more people into wanting to see the film. There will be a big push and demand to get the film made with someone like Megan but then they will come out with someone completely different. On a side note that fits the topic, I still believe whole heartedly that megan will more than likely be the first choice for any film that is the brain child of Michael Turner or one that Turner had a hand in, i.e. Fathom, Witchblade, etc.

Please god NO!

Bad idea. again Bad Idea and once more for impact   BAD IDEA

Edited by AngelFrost

God!

I wish people would just stop their desire to cast Megan Fox ....
Yeah she's beautiful, so what? Doesn't mean she has to be every frickin' character in the comic universe.

She isn't even a good actress. ¬_¬
and very arrogant.

Mgean is too 'glam' to be anything other than a love-interest in an action movie,
I doubt she could pull off a comic-book action flick on her own.

Posted by goosehorn

i really dont care who they cast im not going to go see it


but an angel movie know ill go see that!!

Wait a second! Megan as She-Hulk?
How did I miss it?
I mean it's happened every day, this rumors about Megan Fox and her possible roles (I will not surprise if one day read what she will act as king Leonidas in "301 spartans"), but She-Hulk...
You know what? I like it! Yup, she must take steroids for a couple of month, but I like the idea!
Even more - I love it!

Yeh! Go Maggy!
Damn, crime better watch their back!

What the hell?
Khisty Swanson kicks vampire's fangs as Buffy long before SMG.

However it's still only a rumor and not very smart, coz I have no idea why shoot the movie without Sarah (or whatever her name).
