Warner Bros.’ future Batgirl movie will no longer be directed by Joss Whedon.
In a assertion produced to The Hollywood Reporter, Whedon, who was hooked up to create and immediate the DC movie, claimed he remaining the task simply because he couldn’t appear up with a tale.
“Batgirl is these types of an fascinating task, and Warners/DC [are] these types of collaborative and supportive partners, that it took me months to know I definitely didn’t have a tale,” he claimed. “I am grateful to Geoff [Johns] and Toby [Emmerich] and everybody who was so welcoming when I arrived, and so understanding when I… uh, is there a sexier term for ‘failed’?”
According to THR’s sources, Whedon struggled to appear up with a tale for the Batgirl movie after paying a calendar year seeking. The outlet’s sources also observed that with cultural change at the moment having place in the entertainment marketplace, a male director could potentially deal with more backlash for directing the movie.
