Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon announced today on the fan website Whedonesque that ''I'm no longer slated to make Wonder Woman.''
Whedon had been attached to the long-gestating Warner Bros. project as a writer-director since March 2005. The announcement comes a day after a Hollywood Reporter story about a separate Wonder Woman script written by two unknown scribes that was ''quietly'' being purchased by Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures. That story suggested that the studio was attempting to avoid any conflict with Whedon's now-defunct script. Reps for Whedon, Silver, and Warner Bros. were not immediately available for comment.
