Marvel's The Avengers: A few years ago they were trying to make a Wonder Woman movie. As I heard it, evidently the original script, writer, director, etc weren't working out, so they fired everyone and hired Joss Whedon. Whedon wanted to totally rearrange things, scrap the original script and basically asked for complete control. The owners/producers refused and Joss left the project. I have yet to see a Wonder Woman movie, but Joss went on to direct and co-write the Avengers. This is what you get when somebody who knows and loves his material completely is allowed to do whatever it takes to express that in a movie. I bet those other guys are kicking themselves now.
