SKOREA-ENTERTAINMENT-MOVIE-AVENGERSYikes. Joss Whedon's unproduced 2006 "Wonder Woman" script recently surfaced and went viral, and it was so surprisingly bad that many readers are now worried about what Whedon will do to DC's "Batgirl."

We all have rough early work out there, and Whedon has probably changed a lot in the past 11 years, but after the success of the 2017 "Wonder Woman" movie written by Allan Heinberg and directed by Patty Jenkins, fans were curious about the Whedon Wonder Woman who almost was. Turns out, Steve Trevor comes off as more of the main character, with cringe-worthy treatment for Diana Prince and the women of Themyscira.

You can read whole script here, but Rave Sashayed‏ got the conversation trending on Twitter by live tweeting reactions, with more comments from other readers:


There's a lot more on the thread, including reactions from others curious enough to read the script: Ouch. Some fans defended Whedon, arguing that you shouldn't judge him based on this old unmade script.

Truth. This is the guy who gave us "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," among other amazing things. And this script is from 11 years ago. Then again, Whedon also faced criticism for writing/directing Black Widow's storyline in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," which came out in 2015, so the argument on that side is that maybe he still doesn't quite get it.

Whedon took over for director Zack Snyder to finish up "Justice League," which stars Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and opens Nov. 17. So he kind of got to be part of the "Wonder Woman" story after all. He's both writing and directing DC's "Batgirl" movie, and last we heard he's looking for someone "new" for the role.
