Despite the very disappointing domestic box office of Justice League, director Joss Whedon, who took over from Zack Snyder after Snyder had to leave due to a personal tragedy, has not been fired from directing the upcoming Batgirl film, according to a new report. Justice League made just $94 million at the box office last weekend, making it the lowest opening DCEU movie of all time. Additionally, the film scored a negative rating on Rotten Tomatoes and cast doubt on the future of the DCEU.
However, it looks like Whedon isn’t getting the blame, at least from Warner Bros., though some fans hold him accountable for ruining Snyder’s vision as well as tweeting negatively about the film. Entertainment Weekly claims that, according to “sources,” Whedon is currently working on the script and will still direct Batgirl.
Whedon’s involvement with Batgirl might raise some concerns for fans, as his cut of Justice League featured what one review of the movie described as “a disconcerting number of Wonder Woman upskirt shots,” and Whedon’s ex-wife recently described Whedon himself as “a hypocrite preaching feminist ideals.” Additionally, the movie will reportedly feature Barbara Gordon, only the third best Batgirl behind Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain.
