The announcement of Joss Whedon directing the new Batgirl movie lit up the DC Community. Known for his past hits of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, Whedon has recently been the hot Marvel screenwriter/director with two Avenger movies under his belt and episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Before taking on the Batgirl film (and while in talks with WB at that), Whedon called up Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige about the deal. Feige had this to say about the situation:
“He called a couple months ago, which he didn’t have to do and was super cool of him and super nice of him. And we couldn’t be more supportive. We want to see a Joss Whedon Batgirl film be awesome.”
See? Marvel and DC can get along with the help of Joss Whedon! It was well known that Whedon was frustrated on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron because of creative differences but he has said he’d work with Marvel again. Either way, we’re just happy we get him all to ourselves for an awesome Batgirl movie! Good luck Joss we can’t WAIT to see it!
