It’s still amazing to me that a Batgirl film and a Nightwing film were announced so close to one another, but it seems like they are happening. Maybe the most surprising part of the Batgirl announcement is that it is Joss Whedon who will direct this important entry in the DC Extended Universe.
One of the only Batgirls we have seen on screen is Alicia Silverstone’s rendition in the infamous Clooney-led Batman & Robin film. While the movie itself is better left alone, since Silverstone is one of the only actresses to portray the character before, some are hoping she will have a presence in the upcoming DCEU Batgirl film.
On the red carpet for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Whedon explained that he would be okay with a cameo from Silverstone, but it’s far too early to confirm or deny one.
“It hasn’t crossed my mind. I’m not against it, but I’m not looking for Easter eggs – I’m still trying to write a movie!”
Joss Whedon is starting to sound like Ben Affleck when asked about The Batman! Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the upcoming Batgirl film and the future of the DC Extended Universe!
