Whedon Discusses Whether He’d Switch Teams To DC

We all know Joss Whedon is a fanboy. We also know that he once worked very hard to try and bring Wonder Woman to the big screen. While his WW fizzled out, and he would eventually become part of the global juggernaut that is Marvel Studios and its Cinematic Universe, Whedon still seems to be open to the idea of working with DC now that he’s a free agent again.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is the last film in Whedon’s Marvel deal, and he’s been saying that he wants to work on original projects for a while. But Whedon, ever the quipster, had some fun with the topic of him switching teams came up.

I was a Marvel kid growing up, but I was always DC-curious. And I see myself on the spectrum in between,” he told IGN in a new interview. The writer-director also said, “I desperately wanted to do a Batman film – who doesn’t? And I wanted to do Wonder Woman.” 

He then had some fun with the idea of Wonder Woman being like an ex-girlfriend that he’s not on speaking terms with. “I don’t care who she’s seeing now. We don’t talk much. And I wish her well!” On a more serious note he added, “I worked really hard on that movie and it meant a lot, but I don’t know if what I was trying to do would fit in with what their vision is. I’m excited to see it so I just want them to make it so I can see it!

Speaking of “their vision,” Whedon also seemed to poke a little fun at DC’s supposed anti-humor stance when it comes to their films. “Sure. I’d be like ‘I have all these joke ideas.’ And they’d be like ‘No, we don’t do that here,’” he said.

So while it’s a bit of a long shot that Whedon would ditch one cinematic universe for another (unless it’s one he creates from scratch), folks probably also thought it’d be unlikely that J.J. Abrams would jump from Star Trek to Star Wars. Stranger things have happened.

Suppose DC could lure Whedon into their camp, which character(s) would you want to see him tackle?
