‘The Avengers’ Helmer Joss Whedon In Talks To Write & Direct ‘Batgirl’ Movie

BatgirlNightwing isn’t the only member of the Bat Family who’s getting his own film, as Variety reports that The Avengers helmer Joss Whedon is in talks to write, direct and produce a standalone Batgirl movie set in the DC Extended Universe.

No further details about the Batgirl movie are known at this time besides the fact that it is said to feature “other characters from the world of Gotham,” as expected.

    how many movies are they making any how many will be eventually made is the question but big mistake not offering him green lantern corps

      Chances are, he wasn’t ‘offered’ anything. There’s a good chance he pitched Batgirl, like he pitched WW years ago.

      Whedon isn’t the kind of director to be pointed to a project anymore, he does what he wants.

    WB/DC realizing their women are buckets and buckets of cash.

    Will this be a Batgirl film or Birds of Prey? In my opinion Birds of Prey is the better alternative.

    • Matias Gagliardone

      I don’t think Batgirl should have a movie just for herself
