10 Female Directors Who Could Helm DC’s Batgirl Movie

10. Lucia Aniello

Lucia Aniello

Lucia Aniello has directed thirteen episodes of the hit Comedy Central series Broad City, one of the most beloved new comedies in recent years often praised for how it offers a woman’s perspective on comedy. She reteamed with Broad City star Ilana Glazer for the 2017 comedy Rough Night. While not a box office hit, the film showcased a talent for dark comedy and female friendship. That edge would be a nice addition to not only the DC Extended Universe but also to the Batgirl property itself, helping it stand apart from Batman.

Unlike directors like Marc Webb, Colin Trevorrow or Josh Trank, Lucia Aniello has worked on a number of projects before jumping into a big budget blockbuster. She worked for years on a hit television series and then a directed mid-range budget studio film, something that is often missing from the filmographies of directors nowadays. Being part of one of the biggest and most popular television shows currently on the air shows she has the credentials to direct a Batgirl movie.
