Director by Patty Jenkins will bring her vision of Wonder Woman to theaters in early June, but before the DCEU or Marvel’s MCU a different director was set to helm a Wonder Woman movie.
Joss Whedon who created “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” was at one time hired by Warner Brothers to direct a Wonder Woman movie before he ever thought about directing two Avenger’s movies for Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.
In 2005 Joss Whedon accepted the job to write and direct a Wonder Woman movie for Warner Brothers. Whedon would spend two years writing a script that would have seen Princess Diana and Steve Trevor saving the world in a modern day setting.
Whedon’s Wonder Woman movie would have shown more of an antagonistic relationship with her mother, Queen Hippolyta and fighting Strife, the Goddess of Chaos.
After two years of different opinions and a budget that was lacking Warner Brothers began looking for a different script for the Amazonian Princess, Whedon left the project. Eventually Wonder Woman would be pulled into George Miller’s “Justice League: Mortal” script that would also never come to fruition.
