Writer-director Joss Whedon has decided to step off Warner Bros. Pictures' "Wonder Woman."

An unexpected, shocking decision came from Joss Whedon as he announced yesterday, February 2 that he has officially gave up his position as both writer and director for "Wonder Woman", just one day after Warner Bros. Pictures was reported to buy another script for the project from Matthew Jennison and Brent Strickland.

"I don't think any of us expected it to this time, but it did," so Whedon said in his statement posted on Whedonesque.com. "Everybody knows how long I was taking, what a struggle that script was, and though I felt good about what I was coming up with, it was never gonna be a simple slam-dunk."

A live version adaptation of the DC Comics' popular comic series, "Wonder" originally was set up by Whedon to depict the present-day story of the titular superhero. With his departure, it is still unclear whether Warner Bros. will go on with the recently-bought script instead, which features the character living during WWII time.
