‘Avengers’ Director Joss Whedon In Talks To Write & Direct ‘Batgirl’ Solo Film; Will Be Attached To DCEU

After the announcement that DC was developing a standalone film centered around Nightwing, fans of DC and its cinematic universe began wondering what other members of the Bat-Family we could see pop up at some point, and thanks to a recent report from Variety, Batgirl will be the next caped hero to join the DCEU.

According to sources, WB is looking to develop a solo film around Batgirl, and are looking at Avengers director Joss Whedon to write, direct, and produce the project. Variety also states that Whedon and WB are close to a deal, so expect an announcement in a few days if both sides agree to make this happen. Even if Joss decides to pass on the film, more directors might begin to show interest in bringing Batgirl to the big screen.
