It was just announced that Joss Whedon will write/direct a solo Batgirl movie...
Batgirl is flying solo. The super-heroine is getting her own standalone movie from filmmaker Joss Whedon. Whedon is nearing a deal to write, direct, and produce an untitled Batgirl pic for Warner Bros. as part of its DC Extended Universe.
The Batgirl project will be the second movie from DC Films to star a female lead after Gal Gadot’s “Wonder Woman,” which opens June 2.
Whedon would be making a big move from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to its DC counterpart, having written and directed “The Avengers” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” for Disney-Marvel. He also created the television series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel,” “Firefly,” “Dollhouse,” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
This is very exciting news.
I enjoy just about everything that Joss Whedon has done, so far. He writes great characters (especially females) and always has an element of fun in his projects.
Can't wait to see how this all turns out!
