Joss Whedon, in an interview with IGN, has has said he’s still interested in making a DC movie.
While out promoting the latest Marvel film release, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Whedon was asked by IGN if he would be interested in doing any work for DC. Whedon replied that although he grew up a Marvel kid he has been interested in doing a DC film for a while now.
“Sure. I’d be like ‘I have all these joke ideas.’ And they’d be like ‘No, we don’t do that here.’ I desperately wanted to do a Batman film – who doesn’t? And I wanted to do Wonder Woman. I was a Marvel kid growing up, but I was always DC-curious. And I see myself on the spectrum in between.”
Whedon is obviously no stranger to the superhero film genre, having directed having directed Marvel’s 2012 film The Avengers. In 2005 he was also in the process of developing a Wonder Woman film. Unfortunately, that film never made it to screen. When asked how he felt about Wonder Woman appearing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice he replied:
“I worked really hard on that movie and it meant a lot, but I don’t know if what I was trying to do would fit in with what their vision is. I’m excited to see it so I just want them to make it so I can see it!”
Given Whedon’s particular style it will be interesting to see if he does work on any future DC projects. So far, though, it looks like its just wishful thinking from the director.
