Joss Whedon Booted From Batgirl: PC Hollywood To Blame


The Joss Whedon Batgirl film was supposed part of the DC Cinematic Universe that Justice League, Batman v Superman, and Man of Steel are a part of now.

The Avengers director switched allegiance from Marvel to DC Comics last year when he was hired to write and shoot the superheroine's stand-alone feature, but nearly a year after taking on the Warner Bros. job, Whedon has quit.

Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that part of Whedon's problems may have stemmed from potential backlash in a man helming a film about a female superhero, particularly in the age of #MeToo and Time's Up. Referring to DC president Geoff Johns and Warner Bros.

Just a few months after his DC debut with Justice League, Joss Whedon is leaving its cinematic universe.

The idea of hiring a woman to take his place quickly floated around Twitter, with many fans saying they'd prefer it that way, similar to how Patty Jenkins directed this summer's smash hit "Wonder Woman".

It sounds like Whedon chose to leave on his own, and DC Films President Geoff Johns and Warner Bros.

There really is no sexier way to put it: Joss Whedon failed at bringing Batgirl to the big screen before it even really started. This means Whedon, who has a good relationship with DC overall, will have to look elsewhere for his next creative vision.

Whedon Was an Unpopular Choice to Begin WithSources say that Whedon, after a year of trying, could not crack the code of what a Batgirl movie should be.

In August of 2017, Whedon's ex-wife Kai Cole accused him of having multiple affairs, and that he used his self-purported feminism as the creator of works like Buffy the Vampire Slayer as a shield against criticism.

Here's a breakdown of Whedon's ill-fated involvement with Batgirl, and why it ended before things ever really got moving.
