Nightwing 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. Warner Bros. president and chief content officer Toby Emmerich is overseeing the project alongside DC Films co-heads Jon Berg and Geoff Johns.
The Batgirl movie is the latest in a long line of DC projects that are currently in various stages of development, including The Batman, Gotham City Sirens, Green Lantern Corps, The Flash, Shazam, Black Adam, Justice League Dark, Cyborg, Deadshot, Booster Gold/Blue Beetle along with sequels to Suicide Squad, Man of Steel and Justice League.
