Joss Whedon out of Batgirl, who will take over?

JOSS WHEDON Exits Warner Bros.' BATGIRL

Reportedly, Whedon tried for about a year and just couldn't come up with anything he seemed satisfied with enough to go ahead and make a movie. Picture Group president Toby Emmerich, Whedon added, "I'm grateful to Geoff and Toby and everyone who was so welcoming when I arrived, and so understanding when I...uh, is there a sexier word for 'failed?'"

Enter Joss Whedon's Batgirl project, the latest casualty in DC's unwieldy movie universe.

Plus, Whedon's ex-wife said some pretty damning things about him previous year in the media, and in the age of #MeToo and #TimesUp, Hollywood is (finally) being more reactive to those types of concerns. Batgirl project he was attached to write and direct. He's also directed TV shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

No word from the studio on what will become of the movie.

And Microsoft even took the unusual step of issuing out an out-of-band update that specifically disabled Intel's Spectre variant 2 patch.

Additionally, other sources said that aside from storyline issues, Whedon would have to face a lot of critics who are always on the lookout for errors, especially that he would be set to direct a movie with an all-important and feminist significance as Batgirl.

It's an icky situation to say the least, but after "Justice League" ended up has a bit of a mess, there's no doubting it: Whedon really isn't the right guy to be making a spiritual follow-up to "Wonder Woman".

One possible-and still totally unconfirmed-theory for why Whedon chose to drop out of the movie revolves around the likely backlash that someone like Whedon would receive leading a female-led story. "'When I was running Buffy, I was surrounded by lovely, needy, aggressive young women".

It's unclear at this time if Warner Bros. and DC are planning to scrap the "Batgirl" project entirely, or if they'll push forward with a new director.
