Joss Whedon Eyes ‘BATGIRL’ at Warner Bros.
Joss Whedon is currently in negotiations to write, direct and produce a BATGIRL standalone film of the DC Universe for Warner Bros.
This means that Whedon will be crossing from the Marvel Cinematic Universe after working on The Avengers and The Avengers: Age of Ultra, to do this project. He’s known for creating Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which just turned 20 years old this month. Co-creating ABC’s series Marvel’s AGENTS OF SHIELD.
Batgirl had her first comic book appearance in 1967, she’s Barbara Gordon, daughter of Commissioner James Gordon, and she later became an ally of Batman and Robin in Gotham City. She’s been previously portrayed by Yvonne Craig in 1960s’ Batman series, then by Alicia Silverstone (as Barbara Wilson, Alfred’s niece) in the 1997 flop Batman & Robin. She was recently voiced in the big screen by Rosario Dawson in The LEGO Batman Movie.
Whedon, wrote a treatment for his own Wonder Woman movie decades ago and said last time that his new project is a World War II horror movie. No other details are known about it.
