Moviemaker Joss Whedon enjoyed a double cast reunion at the London launch of his new Shakespeare adaptation Much Ado About Nothing on Tuesday (11Jun13) when stars from Buffy The Vampire Slayer and The Avengers joined him on the red carpet.

British actors Anthony Head and Tom Hiddleston joined the filmmaker at the Apollo cinema in Piccadilly to toast his quirky reworking of the classic play, which features Buffy stars Alexis Denisof, Nathan Fillon and Tom Lenk and The Avengers star Clark Gregg.

Whedon arrived at the premiere in style with his leading lady Amy Acker, carrying a Captain America shield to promote his upcoming Marvel Studios Tv series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, which will feature Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson.
