Joss has said more than once in the last year that if TPTB wants a Spike movie, he'd arrange to make that happen. He probably wouldn't be able to write and direct, but he'd still be the one behind it. James has said that he'd do it, as long as it's in the next four years. Now, last week, the head of the WB has said publically that, yes, they do want a Spike movie from Joss Whedon. Why, with those facts at hand, would anyone still think it's a lie?

Actually, there are no "lies" being told because there are no "truths" being told. Everything you've said is subject to interpretation.

A network, ANY network, will never approach Joss W. and say "we want to do a Spike movie." Joss has to approach them. If they think it will make them money/get good ratings, the green light is given.

The head of the WB didn't say they "want" a Spike movie from Joss W.:

"The "Smallville" stint may not be the only work on The WB for [James] Marsters. Network head David Janollari says he would "gladly" do a TV movie featuring the Spike character if Marsters and "Buffy"/"Angel" creator Joss Whedon want to do one."

There's a big difference between "want" and "would gladly do."

Joss has put the Buffyverse on the back burner for now. That doesn't mean that he can't revisit it in some form, but with Wonder Woman and other projects coming up and taking up his time, I don't think you'll see anything.

I always felt that "right now" Joss wants to do other things than "Slayers and Vampires". I mean isn't that why "Buffy" and "Angel" was put on the backburner EVEN when both shows were still airing because he wanted to try his hand at other things?

Me? i'm ok if there isn't another movie/spinoff. If he can't devote his time to write or direct a Buffy/Angelverse then really what's the sense? Don't give that chore to someone else. The project could suffer.
