We've never facepalmed harder.

'Wonder Woman' is the most empowering movie of 2017. Some of us haven't even seen it, but we just assume that it will motivate us for anything. Just ask the incredible critical response it's received.

Director, Patty Jenkins, has received acclaim for her Hollywood blockbuster and the strong female roles she has created, but recently an alleged copy of an unproduced Joss Whedon script for Wonder Woman has surfaced, and it looks like it's angered quite a few people.

Joss, who is known for writing 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer', as well as directing 'The Avengers' and 'Avengers: Age of Ultron', yet he has been slammed on Twitter for his questionable draft script.

One user got hold of the script, and was frustrated by the fact that it opened with a lot of male characters, and despite being called 'Wonder Woman', didn't appear to be about a woman at all. In fact, the only time "she" was used, was to describe a destructive storm.

Joss - who is set to direct his own female-lead superhero movie, Batgirl, soon - also chose to reference the female characters' age and appearance, which some thought to be unnecessary. Others thought it was the last straw when female characters were referred to as "whores" in the dialogue.

Since, fans of Gal Gadot's 'Wonder Woman' have captured their most eye-rolling moments from Joss' unreleased script, and shared them over Twitter, including Rave Sashayed, who created a whole thread on the matter.

All we can say is good luck with your Batgirl movie, Joss. Good. Luck.
