Joss Whedon “didn’t have a story” for ‘Batgirl’ — but these women sure do

Joss Whedon told Hollywood Reporter that he was stepping down as the writer/director of DC’s upcoming Batgirl movie because he “really didn’t have a story” to tell with it. 

But you know who does have lots and lots of Batgirl stories to tell? Uh… women. Who were girls once. And have experience with that kinda thing.

Whedon had been struggling to come up with a story that could stand up to the kind of empowerment narrative embedded into Wonder Woman. Then Wonder Woman actually came out, turned into a cultural phenomenon, and earned the biggest box office and critical praise for DC.
