Joss Whedon to Direct Standalone 'Batgirl' Movie For DC

Joss Whedon to Direct Standalone 'Batgirl' Movie For DC

No contracts have officially been signed but Variety reports he's close to agreeing to write and direct the film.

Batgirl is coming to DC's cinematic universe, and she's got one hell of a name directing her: Joss Whedon himself.

Thankfully, Avengers' director Joss Whedon clearly agrees.

So far, there is no word as to whether BATGIRL will adhere to a previous incarnation of the Barbara Gordon character, or if Wheadon will find the more recent "Batgril of Burnside" persona to appeal more to his sensibilities for penning characters that are chock-full of sass and finely-tuned brain matter. He also created the television series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Angel", "Firefly", "Dollhouse", and "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D". Also now in development are The Flash, Cyborg, a Suicide Squad sequel, the Suicide Squad spinoff Gotham City Sirens, the Shazam spinoff starring Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam, and a Batman solo film. He of course became an A-list director after the wild success of 2012's The Avengers, yet he seemed to take more pleasure in his micro-budgeted William Shakespeare adaptation, Much Ado About Nothing, the following year than he did in the big budgeted superhero sequel that came afterward.

Felicity Jones, Emma Stone and Amandla Stenberg are just three actresses would all make a great Batgirl in Joss Whedon's rumored film.

I asked DC if they had any problem with me crippling Barbara Gordon - who was Batgirl at the time - and if I remember, I spoke to Len Wein, who was our editor on the project.

We'll bring you more about Warner Bros.' plans for Batgirl as we learn them. This caliber of talent jumping from Disney's Marvel Studios to Warner Brothers' DC is unprecedented. The longtime Batman sidekick, who first appeared in a 1967 comic, will be the star of her own movie, though very few additional details, including a release date or casting information, have been announced yet. Over the years, she has evolved into one of the Caped Crusader's most popular and beloved allies, a more upbeat and relatable counterpoint to gloomy billionaire Bruce Wayne.

That's because Whedon is apparently going with Barbara Gordon, daughter of Commissioner Jim Gordon. The first led to widespread praise and record-breaking numbers but the latter led to negative backlash that soured Whedon on making Marvel movies.

But finally, the biggest reason Batman shouldn't be in a Batgirl movie is simple: She doesn't need him.
