Joss Whedon Eyeing ‘Firefly’ Reunion After ‘The Avengers 2?’

Given the recent 10-year anniversary of the series, and documentary testifying to the lasting impact Joss Whedon's 'Firefly' had on the fan community, even the so-called "Browncoats" must eventually concede that a true 'Firefly' revival may never come to fruition.
