Joss Whedon is not shying away from the fact that he is done with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He also seems as if he would direct a DC movie should Warner Bros. require his help, but we doubt he will ever get that opportunity again.
Yes, we say "again," because back in 2005, Joss Whedon was picked up by Warner Bros. to direct Wonder Woman. He provided a script, so it came down to the studio giving it the green light. However, that did not happen, and Whedon went on to make a success story out of Avengers and Age of Ultron.
However, that is not stopping the famed director from wanting to work on a DC project again. In a recent interview with IGN, he made his intentions clear, though he is not confident if his ideas would fit into where Warner Bros. want to take the DC Cinematic Universe.
He also said he would love to do a Batman film.
"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."
At the moment, Patty Jenkins is the director of the 2017 Wonder Woman movie after Michelle MacLaren and the studio parted ways. Whedon doesn't seem to care who is making the movie now; he's more concerned about seeing it in action at the theaters in the next two years.
"I don't care who she's seeing now" he replied, feigning grief. "We don't talk much. And I wish her well!"
"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!"
We can only see Whedon working on a DC film if he is willing to cut down on the one-liners and humor. Warner Bros. seems to be more interested in telling a more riveting story rather than having Whedon's usual Marvel work.
