More DC news flies our way as Variety is now reporting that Joss Whedon is in talks write, direct, and produce a Batgirl film.
This is very exciting news due to Whedon’s past works and his understanding of Female characters. He’s done some spectacular work over the last few years bringing a skeptic(me) of the character Black Widow over to absolutely loving her. He didn’t just make her an indestructible bad ass, he gave her strength and character but also made her vulnerable.
If he can bring this to the street of Gotham with Barbara Gordon along with his signature humor we’re looking at a breath of fresh air within the DCEU.
My only real negatives about this deal are that we are once again staying within the bat family. There are so many other characters in the DC Universe that don’t have the word Bat in them. Hopefully, we get to see those character in the limelight sooner than later. But overall this is great news for the DCEU and I hope it pans out.
