Sometimes a plan just doesn’t come together.

In March 2017 it was announced that “Avengers” director Joss Whedon would be joining DC’s “Batgirl” project with the intention of bringing the classic character to the big screen.

After nearly a year of work, though, The Hollywood Reporter now reports that Whedon has left the project, with the director being honest about the reason: He couldn’t come up with a good enough story.

“‘Batgirl’ is such an exciting project, and Warners/DC such collaborative and supportive partners, that it took me months to realize I really didn’t have a story,” Whedon told THR.

“I’m grateful to [DC president Geoff Johns] and [Warner Bros. Picture Group president Toby Emmerich] and everyone who was so welcoming when I arrived, and so understanding when I…uh, is there a sexier word for ‘failed’?”

Fans were quick to suggest replacements for Whedon, with many calling on Warner Bros. to hire women to write and/or direct the film.

Writer Roxane Gay threw her own name into the ring on Twitter to write a “Batgirl” movie.

Amazingly, Warner Bros. Entertainment vice-president Michele Wells responded that if Gay was “serious,” they should get in touch.
