Joss Whedon Reflects on His Rejected WONDER WOMAN Movie Back before The Avengers solidified Joss Whedon’s name in the superhero world, the burgeoning writer wanted to tackle another iconic heroine. In the early 2000s, Whedon found himself hard at work on a Wonder Woman film which Warner Bros. ultimately turned down. Still, Whedon has yet to forget the blow he took after his Wonder Woman script was rejected. And, in a new interview with Empire, the visionary filmmaker is reflecting on his scrapped project. “I worked really hard on that movie and it meant a lot [to me],” Whedon said after being interview for a Wonder Woman feature. “but I don’t know if what I was trying to do would fit in with what [the studio’s] vision is. I had to take on the film that, well, nobody liked… We just saw different movies, and at the price range this kind of movie hangs in, that’s never gonna work.” According to Empire, Whedon’s story was a very different one from what Patty Jenkin’s team has brought to life. In his iteration, Diana left her home of Themyscira with Steve Trevor shortly after the two became friends. They would leave to give aid to refugees, but Diana would run into plenty of trouble in Trevor’s hometown of Gateway City.
