BTVS: Joss Whedon To Do X-Men

I absolutely don't know how to categorize this, but I guess for the moment I'll consider it Buffy news.

It is being reported that Joss Whedon will be writing a new X-Men title for Marvel Comics. Entitled 'Astonishing X-Men', it will be written by Joss for at least 1 year with art by John Cassaday. The only place I've seen this reported is at Bureau 42, and I haven't gotten confirmation from another source.

Earlier this month I posted an interview with Joe Quesada in the News section, where he seemed to deny this rumor. He stated quite plainly that... "I hate to break it to the fans, but this stuff about Whedon and Cassaday doing New X-Men is just a nasty rumor"

Which apparently, would seem to be true, as they will be doing a new title instead of taking over 'New X-Men'.

Update: Wizard confirms this and has an interview with Joss Whedon on their site.
