Joss Whedon Was Encouraged by Kevin Feige to Helm Batgirl

Shares

In a strange twist, Kevin Feige who’s the head of the Marvel Cinematic Universe spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about plans for the future for the Marvel film universe and during the interview he shared his thoughts on Joss Whedon moving over to the DC Extended Universe and signing up for the Batgirl that was recently announced.

“He called a couple months ago, which he didn’t have to do and was super cool of him and super nice of him,” said Feige. “And we couldn’t be more supportive. We want to see a Joss Whedon Batgirl film be awesome.”

What makes this news surprising is that Joss Whedon made it clear that after working on The Avengers: Age of Ultron he was unhappy with how Marvel Studios had forced him to cut things out just to tease upcoming films.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
