The Bat-signal is being dimmed... for now

The report goes on to say that Whedon couldn't "crack the code for what the Batgirl story should be".

Whedon's relationship led the writer/director to take over post-production duties of Justice League from Zack Snyder after the untimely loss of his daughter, though Snyder is now speculated to have been fired from the film.

"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 said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. At the time of the initial announcement of his "Batgirl", he seemed ideal for the role, poised to bring "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" wit and charm to the DCEU.

Whedon penned a much-derided script for "Wonder Woman" in 2006 that recently leaked online. It's unknown whether he is leaving the DCEU altogether at this point or will simply move on to another movie (I feel there are plenty of characters he could make great movies with) for them.

However, that's the reason Whedon gave for his departure.

No new director has been announced for the project. The outlet also notes that Whedon's attachment to a film about a female superhero might have faced more scrutiny in today's culture, citing Patty Jenkins and Ryan Coogler's involvement in Wonder Woman and Black Panther as examples.

THR also notes that after Wonder Woman, under the stewardship of Patty Jenkins, broke box office records and almost outgrossed Batman V. Superman worldwide, any male director helming a movie driven by women would be subject to more scrutiny. Whedon also created the hit TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., among others.

There really is no sexier way to put it: Joss Whedon failed at bringing Batgirl to the big screen before it even really started. So we're pretty fine with this.
