DC passing on Whedon as a mistake is hindsight being 20/20. I mean come on, Whdeons script was from 2005, a year after Catwoman bombed. Can you blame DC/WB for not taking a risk at another female led movie from a director whose been mainly done tv shows?
Plus they just took a chance at Nolan for Batman Begins already which released in 2005 as well.
A few years later, DC tried a WW pilot which went nowhere again, I think there was a WW movie script too that just tanked. Remember this was from a very cautious WB CEO who green lit one DC film every few years, so chances are Nolan was as far as he would go with taking chances.
DC always gets crapped on why they are so afraid of making a woman-centric film like WW but as you can see they have tried and tired and failed and failed. It isn't as easy some of you guys are making it out to be. There isn't a Feige in every corner who has the vision and is a comic book guy who is also a competent producer. You guys don't think WB wouldn't want someone who can handle their franchise like that? Same with Fox and Sony?
I mean DC can't win, people bash DC for not making a WW film (despite them trying and failing) and when they announce that they finally are then others look for a reason to hate again, saying why is a Suicide Squad movie coming before it? Can't you just be happy a WW film is coming and the Assault on Akrham animated film was pretty damn good, these guys are villains that do not really need deep background stories. It can work and obviously MoS and BvS will be establishing the world already. You don't need 10 films to establish the world.
Then for years now people have been begging DC to just follow Marvel and plan ahead and now that they are, they get bashed again that they are rushing and are just copying what marvel does and doesn't know what they are doing and everything is a mess. I mean how the hell is DC going to win?
They can't even get credit for trying. Yes they are trying it in a different way but that is good, let them play their game and fall and fail, then I'll be there laughing with you guys.
Again, you guys want them to go back to making one film every 2-3 years and completely ignoring other properties and keep making their own worlds?
And really to say Cyborg is going to be a Robocop rip-off obviously knows nothing about the character.
