Batgirl Gets A Solo Movie By Joss Whedon
Today, news broke that there will be a standalone Batgirl film.
So far, no one else is attached to help created the project yet, but Toby Emmerich, president and chief content officer of Warner Bros.
No release date has been announced, with Whedon yet to officially sign on.
Previously, Whedon wrote and directed The Avengers, and he's also the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer - another badass heroine of pop culture history.
It remains unclear when the Batgirl film would go into production or hit theaters. "If somebody pointed to me and said, 'You want to make a Black Widow movie?' the answer would be, 'Duh, '" Whedon explained.
Whedon himself is no stranger to writing comic books or movies based on comics, and he could come up with a new take on the character himself. The most popular iteration of the character is Barbara Gordon, who fought alongside Batman and Robin until the Joker shot her in the spine in The Killing Joke.
