Joss Whedon wants to make a Batman movie?!

April 27th, 2015 by Marc Comments


After running the story yesterday that Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon would (possibly) be interested in doing a DC movie (here), it seems there’s a bit more to it.

Whedon was famously attached to the Wonder Woman movie a few years back at DC but it crashed and burned before he jumped to Marvel. But he still has the desire to do some DC, it seems: “I desperately wanted to do a Batman film – who doesn’t?”  he said.

“And I wanted to do Wonder Woman; 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!”

“I was a Marvel kid growing up, but I was always DC-curious. And I see myself on the spectrum in between”.

So he wants to do a Batman movie still, huh? Well, I’ll not lie, a few years ago this would have been a dream pairing for me, personally… and it still is.

We can dream, can’t we?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
