Today, news broke that there will be a standalone Batgirl film. Joss Whedon, director of the first two Avengers films among a bevy of other renowned genre film and TV projects, is nearing a deal to write, direct, and produce the movie on behalf of Warner Bros. and DC Comics.
According to Variety, no other producers are currently attached to this movie, which means we can wildly speculate about the involvement of people such as Geoff Johns, who recently played a huge role in developing this summer’s Wonder Woman film. We can also hope for the involvement of creators such as Gail Simone, Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher, Babs Tarr, Hope Larson, and others whom have played major roles in elevating Batgirl’s profile in the DC Comics universe over the years.
