The Batgirl movie is in need of a new director. Whedon's version of Batgirl, it was reported, would have been based on a recent run of comics written by Gail Simone that featured Barbara back in action but still traumatized to some degree.
"Geoff and Toby" are DC president Geoff Johns and Warners Picture Group president Toby Emmerich.
Following his stint at Marvel Studios, Whedon hopped over to the unofficially titled DC Extended Universe to oversee the infamous Justice League reshoots, in which he streamlined the story and added in several comedic scenes, which in turn earned him a screenwriting credit on the film.
Less than a year after announcement, Joss Whedon is off of the upcoming Batgirl movie.
Whedon's exit, though, is not altogether surprising.
