Inspired by the recent success of Mad Max: Fury Road and the continued critically acclaimed Netflix show Orange Is The New Black, Joss Whedon has announced he is making an “uber feminist” film.
Whedon’s ex-wife Kai Cole recently spoke out against her former husband and his well-publicised claims of being a feminist and advocate for women after he confessed to her of multiple affairs during their marriage.
Last year, after criticism from many critics and fans over the portrayal of Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Whedon insisted he did not quit Twitter because of “militant feminists,” calling those claims “horseshit.”
However, Whedon has now decided that the allure of such a film is too strong to ignore. “When you see something like Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood, you just can’t help but get excited.”
Sources close to the writer/director say he will call on the expertise of notable women like Margaret Atwood, Beyonce, Emma Watson, Angelina Jolie, Lena Dunham and, of course, Taylor Swift.
