Why Joss Whedon Left the Batgirl Movie

It's nearly hard to believe that it was over a year ago now that Joss Whedon climbed aboard Warner Bros.' Batgirl movie, slated to write, direct, and produce the project.

Quite possibly, Whedon's "Batgirl" story was in line with the darker tone of "The Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", while executives were looking at the runaway success of "Wonder Woman", which was full of hope and optimism.

Now, Whedon is further explaining his departure from the project at the premiere of "Avengers: Infinity War".

"It had been a year since I had first pitched the story".

"The story kind of just crumbled in my hands", he tells Variety. "There were elements that I just hadn't mastered, and after a long time, I felt like I wasn't going to". I told people that I didn't have an idea, which isn't an exact truth.

The director said it was "a little heartbreaking" to leave the project, which as it turns out was because his idea for the movie "didn't fit in the space that was left for it".

"People say that it's not woke enough. It's easy to take one phrase out of context", he continued.

Now despite my shade, I don't feel like Joss Whedon has to disappear quietly into the night, but I think he needs to grow to meet the standards of feminism that exist today. His "Wonder Woman" story posted online in June 2017, right around the time Patty Jenkins' successful adaptation starring Gal Gadot hit theaters, which the director said he loved.

When he left the project, Whedon said it was because he "didn't have a story".

"The movie has integrity and the characters have integrity and I stand by it", he concluded. Though Whedon has a track record of working with strong female characters on the small screen on series like Dollhouse and Firefly, the heat from the current political climate in Hollywood might have influenced him to get out of the proverbial kitchen before it was too late. He also endured a good deal of blowback previous year, between the backlash to both his Wonder Woman script and his Justice League reshoots, which significantly changed Zack Snyder's original cut of the DCEU film.
