J.J. Abrams, Who's Directing Episode 9 of Star Wars: Anyone Who Criticizes Star Wars Is Just "Threatened" By Women;
Joss Whedon No Longer Attached to "Batgirl" Project

First, on Joss Whedon. Most articles use vague wording like that he's "departed" the long-threatened Batgirl film; Grace Randolph says "fired."

She notes the three reasons he's likely "no longer attached to" or "fired from" Batgirl:

1, he got into fights with Kevin Feige over Age of Ultron, and that film disappointed.

2, he re-shot Zack Snyder's version of Justice League, and that film is, reportedly, a total mess and would probably have ended the DCEU if Wonder Woman had not been a big cushioning hit.

3, although Joss Whedon continues to play the Sensitive Male Feminist card, and thus come up as an obvious choice to direct a Grrrl power movie like Batgirl, his ex-wife's revelations about his use of the Sensitive Male Feminist card to cheat on her and score easy ****y sort of makes his association with a female-based property questionable.

You gotta know that if Batgirl were real, Joss Whedon would be inviting her up to his apartment to see his Chinese etchings and his coffin coffee table.

He's a one-trick dick and I'll be glad when he get shit out of the lower intestine of the film industry.

Meanwhile, J.J. Abrams is resorting to using the the public relations defense that worked so well forGhostbusters: If you don't like our stupid corporate art-by-committee cashgrab, you're misogynist and bigot.

"Their problem isn’t Star Wars, their problem is being threatened," Abrams told IndieWire when asked about a social media group that admitted to deliberately trying to bring down The Last Jedi‘s Rotten Tomatoes score.

"Star Wars is a big galaxy, and you can sort of find almost anything you want to in Star Wars. If you are someone who feels threatened by women and needs to lash out against them, you can probably find an enemy in Star Wars," Abrams added. "You can probably look at the first movie that George [Lucas] did [Star Wars: A New Hope] and say that Leia was too outspoken, or she was too tough. Anyone who wants to find a problem with anything can find the problem. The internet seems to be made for that."

I hope the Ghostbusters Defense works equally well for Disney's Star Wars IP.

The problem might have something to do with producer Kathleen Kennedy explicitly re-making Star Wars into a feminism-boosting fantasy. The Force is Female, you know.

As Gandhi once said: Fuck all these people.
