Joss Whedon to Work on Batgirl Standalone Film
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.
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.
