Joss Whedon, the man behind The Avengers and Avengers Age Of Ultron for Marvel is reported to be finalising a deal with Warner Bros to write, direct and produce Batgirl. This isn’t the first time Whedon has ventured into DC territory, having previously written a script for Wonder Woman that was sadly never made.
It is still not known what direction Whedon will take,or which iteration of the character Batgirl will be. Variety also reports that that “The project will also feature other characters from Gotham”. So with that being said, could we see Batman ( Ben Affleck ) or even a cameo from Nightwing which is currently being developed by Warner Bros with Chris McKay set to helm the project?.
I think its an incredibly smart move by Warner Bros to lure Whedon over to the dark side, haha get it? cause DC movies are dark and gritty. His knowledge for comic book cannon is invaluable to studios, so lets hope that he gets full creative control over Batgirl, and that the studio doesn’t interfere like they have previously done in the past with Man Of Steel, Batman V Superman, and Suicide Squad.
How do you feel about Whedon going to DC for Batgirl? Sound off in the comments and let us know your thoughts.
