Given what's come out about his personal life, in this climate? The fact that they let him say it was "we don't have a script" rather than saying "we were worried he'd **** his actors" was a favour, imo. And taking in to account how bad his WW script was reported to be too.
I'm not surprised, but I do wonder what's going to happen next. Barbara Gordon is by no means my favourite character, but I do want to see what they can do with her.
If he's to be believed, then whatever his pitch was, wasn't enough to carry an entire movie. It's not the first time it's happened, I imagine, so I don't know if I would put all the blame on WB for this one.
I read that leaked WW script and it really was offensively bad. It was horrifically sexist and it actually seemed like Whedon outright hated the character of Wonder Woman. Steve Trevor spends the whole movie just berating her and humiliating her and shes constantly sexualised and degraded. Its terrible.
I'm honestly a bit unsure of Whedon after the script leaking and AoU and JL being so crap. His star has definitely fallen recently.
Joss has always seemed like the guy who acted like a feminist in order to surround himself with hot women. IMO, she and the amazons appear much more like sex objects in JL than WW.
