Joss Whedon won't write and direct 'Batgirl' movie as planned

Joss Whedon Leaves DC Batgirl Movie

Which, in of itself, is a rather large hint as to what Warner thinking for a new direction on Batgirl.

After moving from Marvel Studios to Warner Bros. and DC past year in the hopes of writing and directing a movie based on Barbara Gordon (aka Batgirl), the writer/director has officially exited the project, leaving it without a filmmaker at the moment.

Whedon has confirmed he's no longer writing or directing Batgirl, saying he "failed" to come up with a good story.

Though it was a speculative approach, it turns out that the organisation are genuinely interested in her proposal and invited her to get in touch to discuss further details.

Joss Whedon has quit as the director and writer of "Batgirl".

Johns is president of DC Entertainment, while Emmerich heads Warner Bros. The success of Jenkins' vision also shed new light on a past Whedon script for "Wonder Woman" that rang with time-deaf notes in 2017. Another: Batgirl, written and directed by Joss Whedon. Rumours of a potential departure first surfaced in November past year, and now The Hollywood Reporter have officially confirmed he's chosen to leave the project.

Many fans want to see Whedon replaced with a woman.

. Despite being a staunch feminist, Whedon's ex-wife said that he is a hypocrite, accusing the filmmaker of having multiple affairs during their marriage.

On paper, this seemingly makes Whedon a flawless fit for Batgirl, based on the version of the character that it was alleged he'd be adapting.

Today, however, Whedon told the press that though "Batgirl is such an exciting project" and everyone included was very supportive, "it took me months to realize I really didn't have a story".

"Batgirl" has been a popular superhero for more than 50 years, but has never gotten her own movie. I had to make some hard cuts (like Cowboy Ninja Viking runner-up Jennifer Yuh Nelson), but without further ado, here are a half-dozen women who I think are well-suited to direct BATGIRL. Let us know down in the comments.
