Joss Whedon No Longer Making Batgirl Movie

The reason Whedon has stepped down from the project is mainly because he felt he wasn't able to write a good story for Batgirl.

It sounds like Whedon made a decision 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. Whedon also created the hit TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., among others. Hollywood Reporter noted that industry sources added the studio feared backlash resulting from a man writing a strong female character such as Batgirl.

As reported exclusively by The Hollywood Reporter, Joss Whedon is exiting the project of Batgirl. This news isn't exactly surprising, seeing as Whedon was once reportedly fired from the project, though that rumor turned out to be false... at the time. Since his appointment back in March, Whedon's sexist Wonder Woman screenplay leaked, leading many to worry what he would do to Batgirl.

Plus, there's the "Wonder Woman" script that never went into production, which he wrote in 2006 and surfaced on several blogs in the summer of 2017 (just after audiences Gal Gadot stride across a World War I battlefield like a boss). After all, the films Whedon is credited with directing (leaving out "Justice League") have grossed almost three billion dollars worldwide, and there's all that pre-established nerd cred...

Joss Whedon has exited as the director of Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment's BATGIRL movie, it was announced Thursday.

Whedon's last project was finishing off the Justice League movie after Zack Snyder had to pull out due to a family tragedy.

It's unclear what the status of Batgirl is now that Whedon is no longer involved.
