Variety is reporting that Batgirl will be getting her own movie from by Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Avengers). Whedon will write, direct and produce the movie for DC and Warner Brothers. Toby Emmerich, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns will oversee the project for DC.
Joss Whedon is of course more well known for his work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe where he produced The Avengers. He will now make the jump over to DC to attempt to revitalize the disappointing DCEU.
Batgirl first appeared in DC Comics in 1967 as Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon in “The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl!” by writer Gardner Fox and artist Carmine Infantino
