Joss Whedon drops Batgirl.

Why? Supposedly… “”Batgirl is such an exciting project, and Warners/DC such collaborative and supportive partners, that it took me months to realize I really didn’t have a story,” Whedon told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement.”  No story?  No story?  Since when has ‘lacking a story’ been even a speed bump on the Hollywood journey?

Rumor: Joss Whedon to do Flash/Supergirl crossover musical?

I am… conflicted on this.

Take this with a massive grain of salt, but That Hashtag Show is claiming thatJoss Whedon will direct the two-part musical crossover between The Flashand Supergirl on The CW in the spring of 2017. I’m not familiar with That Hashtag Show and don’t know if they have an accurate and proven track record breaking stories like this, so I’m hesitant to believe it until we hear further confirmation from another source.

*From what I’m hearing, Joss Whedon is looking good for having Hollywood bankroll whatever the heck he feels like directing next.  But… from what I’ve seen, you get one Golden Ticket per mega hit, Joss.  Spend it wisely.

No Joss Whedon for Buffy Movie?

Yes, I’m late to this particular party; and yes, it was Joss Whedon’s own decision… still.  Why precisely do they expect me to go watch it, without the cast OR the director?
