Joss Whedon to Work on Batgirl Standalone Film

 

Variety.com  has reported that Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon is close to signing a deal with Warner Bros. to direct, write and produce an untitled Batgirl movie that will be a part of the DCEU.

This news comes on the exact day of the 20th anniversary of Weadon’s popular TV series Buffy The Vampire Slayer, which couldn’t have been a better time to have this Batgirl news come out.

The last time we saw Weadon’s work on the superhero big screen was in Avengers: Age of Ultron as a writer and director. This Batgirl solo movie will be Weadon’s first film in the DCEU and his first time producing, directing and writing a DC character for film. No other producers have been announced to be a part of the film yet. Toby Emmerich, president and chief content officer of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, is overseeing the project with Jon Berg and Geoff Johns. This film originated about a month ago, so it will probably be a while before we see it.

The Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe launched in 2013 with  Man of Steel, followed by last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad.

The upcoming films, which have already been announced, are Wonder Woman (out June 2nd), Justice League, which will be out Nov. 17th and Aquaman arriving in theatres in December 2018.

Warner Bros. is also working on The Batman, starring Ben Affleck, and Shazam! with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the villain Black Adam. Also Gotham City Sirens and a Suicide Squad sequel

When exactly we will see Batgirl in the DCEU remains to be seen, unless they are just going to release the movie and not have Batgirl appear in say The Batman or Gotham City Sirens.
