Some kind of un-Wonderful

Wonder Woman and Wonder Boy no moreWell bugger. Buffy mastermind and all-around genius Joss Whedon is no longer attached to the upcoming “Wonder Woman” movie. But as further evidence of the coolness that is Joss, he went straight to his fans to break the bad news. He posted on Whedonesque saying that the problem boiled down to different takes on the Amazon princess.

“I had a take on the film that, well, nobody liked….Let me stress first that everybody at the studio and Silver Pictures were cool and professional. We just saw different movies, and at the price range this kind of movie hangs in, that’s never gonna work. Non-sympatico.”

Given Joss’s ability to create strong, complex and original heroines, this is clearly Wonder Woman’s loss. And ours. Sigh.
