you have to take these kinds of things with a whole salt

Whedon had assembled a team to work on it, headed by comics
and TV writer Jeph Loeb. When Loeb took a job working as

else, he might know if the AICN scoop had any validity,
even if he wouldn't be working on the project.

submitted to a further interview, here.
the news is sparse, it seemed worthwhile to all you mourning
fans to give you some hope: the Whedonverse is not dead.
