Well this sure as hell comes as a surprise to just about everybody.
News is now out all over the place that Joss Whedon (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, and Serenity) is now no longer attached to write and direct the Wonder Woman movie. This is just baffling, considering Whedon’s mastery of strong female characters as well as his geek street cred.
Check out all the details here.
I have to admit that this move is a scary one, as Whedon is a damn fine filmmaker and writer. That executives would remove someone like him from a project like this doesn’t speak well for the future of the first lady of comics. But, as with anything that comes out of Hollywood, I guess we’ll have to wait and see how this pans out in the long run.
Still kind of pissed though. Oh well.
