Joss Whedon’s Wonder Woman
They made a poster for Comic-Con ! We have it around here somewhere...
2005. Producer Joel Silver announced that Joss Whedon was writing a Wonder Woman movie. Whedon wrote one draft, then another and then... well that’s where it gets fuzzy. The project just sorta stalled, and not even its writer was sure as to why.
"I wrote a script. I rewrote the story. And by the time I’d written the second script, they asked me...not to," Whedon told MAXIM magazine. "They didn’t tell me to leave, but they showed me the door and how pretty it was. ’Would I like to touch the knob and maybe make it swing ?’ I was dealing with them through [producer] Joel Silver, who couldn’t tell me what they wanted or anything else. I was completely in the dark. So I didn’t know what it was that I wasn’t giving them. I’ve moved on."
Whedon moved on to make The Avengers, which stars Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, an actress Whedon was quite keen to get for the role of Princess Diana. Warner Bros. even bought a spec script from a writing team, one that garnered a lot of praise around Hollywood, as a way to cover their bases. Whether or not that script, or Whedon’s, will ever see a soundstage remains up in the air. Right alongside WW’s invisible plane.
Joss Whedon’s Batman
Before Chris Nolan gave us the best Batman movies ever, Warner Bros. was feverishly searching for new takes to revitalize their Dark Knight franchise. Several filmmakers, from Darren Aronofsky to George Miller, all had their hats in the ring. And so did Buffy’s Joss Whedon.
His take ? Arkham Asylum is home to a Hannibal Lecter-type villain, who serves as a sort of mentor/research subject for Bruce Wayne. The story would unfold during Bruce’s early days in Gotham, and have a strong emotional core that would fuel Wayne’s Batman outings. The studio responded with 9 different types of "No," and Whedon went on to do other things. While this take is very left-of-center, it’s the Joss. More than likely, he would have knocked this out of the park, or tweaked the idea to be the home run fans want.
Maybe if Whedon gets to do the idea as a comic, as he has expressed a desire to do, we’ll get to see it.
