    The brain behind cult hits Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dr. Horrible will speak to fans on a panel at Comic-Con this year.

    Joss Whedon will join Firefly stars on Friday July 13 at 12:30 p.m. for a joint panel discussion.

    This year marks the tenth anniversary since his show Firefly aired, played for 11 episodes and was then canceled. The panel will feature Whedon, writer Tim Minear and several cast and crew members of the space western show.

    Whedon's massive fan-base has built over the years since Firefly first aired. More recently, he wrote and directed The Avengers, a movie that combines the adventures of all Marvel comic-book heroes. The movie set records at the box office, and brought the writer even more notoriety.

    Prior to the debut of the film, he also created "Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog," a 3-part, 42-minute long musical available online.
