Whedonverse

"He [Joss Whedon] is the gravitational center of the Whedonverse, a galaxy that spins recurring actors and themes through an orbital system of TV shows, films and comic books that all share similar traits: a unique brand of witty dialogue, relatable characters and fantasy/sci-fi mythology. Together, the works inspire the kind of obsessive devotion generally reserved for those inhabiting Middle Earth or a galaxy far, far away."
―Entertainment Weekly

The Whedonverse, sometimes referred to as the Jossverse, is the loosely-defined fictional universe encompassing the worlds and storylines from projects developed by Joss Whedon.
