"Joss Whedon: New script is about a girl who goes through unbelievable sh--"

From May 2016:

“I wrote all the way through to the end of the movie and was crying, in public,” Whedon said. “The restaurant closed. The valet guy came to me and then just turned around and went the other way. And I don’t like to make a spectacle of myself, but I had to take off my shirt and blow my nose into it because they had taken away all the napkins. I couldn’t stand up. I couldn’t stop crying, and then I got in a car – luckily somebody else was driving – and kept crying for about 20 more minutes.”

Attending the HeForShe event where he was recognized for his work fighting for women’s rights, Whedon also told The Wrap he could see himself tackling a female-led superhero movie.
