‘Buffy’ and ‘Angel’ creator Joss Whedon recently chatted about who he thought would come out on top in a fight – Angel (played by David Boreanaz), a beloved vampire from both the now canceled series ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ and ‘Angel’, or Edward Cullen (played by Robert Pattinson) from the popular ‘Twilight’ series.
A TV producer suggested to Whedon that Boreanaz’s Angel would have an upper hand due to past experiences as well as his sadistic alter ego Angelus.
Whedon told MTV news, “I think Robert Pattinson’s really cool, [but] Angel would kick the s**t out of him.”
Whedon further elaborated saying, “Okay, he’s Angelus. There’s no Edward Cullenus, okay. He just gets shiny in the sun… Boreanaz would have him down in a heartbeat. No offense, ’cause he’s hot.”
Whedon also talked a bit about the theme of vampire/human love stories, “There’s something primal about that story. You can’t get away from it, and it just works like gangbusters. I love it.”
