Last night a Zack Snyder super fan named Fiona shared a photo of a tweet on Vero about the news of Joss Whedon stepping down from Batgirl. “More bad news for fans of DC Entertainment: Joss Whedon is giving up on his Batgirl movie,” the tweet read. Fiona, who is from China, shared some of her own commentary as well. Her comment translates to: “Today, the only bad news is that the media/press still think Whedon stepping down was bad for the DCEU. They should really raise the bar to be media”. She obviously is not a big Whedon fan.
Where this story gets interesting is her comment implying that Whedon’s exit from Batgirl was good news was “liked” by Zack Snyder. It was also “liked” by Snyder’s good friend and DC Films photographer Clay Enos. Some fans believe that Enos responded to the Whedon news in his own way by sharing the song “Good Riddance” by Green Day shortly after the story broke.
With recent reports that Snyder was fired from Justice League and now this “like” about Whedon’s departure from Batgirl, it’s understandable why Snyder may not be the biggest Joss Whedon fan. It’s certainly looking like he was pushed out of Justice League by Warner Bros. and Whedon was brought in to try and salvage what was deemed an “unwatchable” cut.
What do you make of this “like” by Zack Snyder? Let me know in the comments below.
Update 2/24/18: This morning, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins “liked” a tweet about this story.
