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?
