Variety broke the story today the director JOSS WHEDON will be directing a BATGIRL solo movie for Warner Bros/DC Comics, which will be part of the ongoing DC Extended Universe. Whedon is known for creating Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly, and also directed both The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron for Marvel. If you’ve seen his previous work, you know Whedon can bring the goods! Plus, he’s known for writing awesome women characters, so I’m sure Batgirl will be no exception!
I haven’t loved the DC films so far, so having Whedon on board to do Batgirl is the first piece of DC news that has gotten me excited. We’ll get to see the new WONDER WOMAN movie in June, and JUSTICE LEAGUE in November so hopefully the DC Extended Universe can get back on track!
