Joss Whedon Thought About Directing A Female BATMAN Movie Post-AVENGERS

Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon thought about pursuing a unique take on Batman following the box office success of the first Avengers movie. Is that a concept fans want to see?


Before Joss Whedon agreed to helm Avengers: Age of Ultron, Whedon thought about trying to get a DC superhero film off the ground again with Warner Bros. (see Joss Whedon's failed Wonder Woman film).  Said Whedon, "I will say that when I was thinking about, Well, if I wasn't’t going to do Avengers 2, what would I want to do? — of course the first thing I thought of was ‘turn-of-the-century female Batman.’ Not Batman actually. But, you know, something cool. One person. Can’t stress that enough. Movie about one person — not a team, not 10, just one. But [I would] do a nice sort of hard action movie that combined all my favorite things.  Something that would be the love child of Sam Fuller and Edward Gorey. You know, I’ve had many thoughts since then. Oh, I could do this! Oh, I could do that! But it is my instinct to want to tell those stories."

With Whedon seemingly stepping aside to let the Russo's direct The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 (2018) and Part 2 (2019) could this avant-garde take on Batman be a concept that Whedon looks to explore post-Age of Ultron?  For that matter, what does Whedon even mean by a "turn-off-the-century female Batman?" Would that be Batgirl Barbara Gordon, Batwoman Bette Kane or a female version of Bruce Wayne?  If Marvel Studios and Whedon do actually decide to give their relationship a breather, is this an idea you would want Whedon to explore?
