Batgirl was a project nobody knew was coming. It wasn’t part of the original DC Films slate back when it was announced in 2014. Yet in March 2017 it was announced that former The Avengers director Joss Whedon had been chosen by Warner Bros. and DC to helm a Batgirl movie. No progress was made on the project, but it seemed Warner Bros. was serious in the film as they announced it as part of their lineup at Comic-Con in 2017.
Yet after a year, Joss Whedon departed Batgirl. It isn’t known if Warner Bros. will still continue to actively pursue the film or if they will shelve it. It does appear though that the studio does plan to pick a woman to direct the film if they decide to move forward with the project. There are plenty of women working in Hollywood that would jump at the chance to direct a superhero film and plenty that would bring a unique perspective to the character.
These are just ten wonderful directors that could helm DC’s Batgirl movie. Click Next to get started!
