A 'Batgirl' movie is in the works from 'Avengers' director Joss Whedon

A 'Batgirl' movie is in the works from 'Avengers' director Joss Whedon”

This is because after plenty of discussion over bringing Batgirl to life on the big screen in a solo project, it seems that the DCEU is officially moving forward with the film.

While Batgirl is a famed DC Comics character, Whedon previously directed "The Avengers" and "Avengers: Age of Ultron" for rival Marvel Entertainment. The untitled film has no release date yet, and even if everything works out and Joss Whedon does sign, don't expect to see it in theaters before 2020. He tried to make his female-led superhero movie for Marvel, but it never happened.

Whedon is no stranger to superhero movies of course. She is the daughter of Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon and ally of Batman.

Trump threw his weight behind the Republicans' replacement bill, cajoling and strong-arming House members to vote for the bill. The bill, backed by Trump, has proved a tough sell to both conservative and moderate factions in his own Republican party.

While Zack Snyder's take on Batman has leaned towards the dark and gritty, I'll be curious to see what direction Whedon takes the character. He is also known for being the creator of some popular television shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Batgirl was first introduced into the DC Comics universe in 1961, as Betty Kane.

"Batgirl", for the uninitiated, is a DC comics superheroine who also lives in Gotham City. Word is that the Batgirl movie will feature other Bat-associated characters.

The Scottish National Party accused Mrs May of breaking a promise to forge a "UK-wide approach" to Brexit before triggering Article 50.

Variety reports that Whedon is in talks to write, direct, and produce the film, though no other producers or names are yet attached.

Reaffirming her excitement for Whedon as director, she noted that the fact that Warner Bros. picked him demonstrated that the studio is serious about making the film.

It's worth noting that recently, Jena Malone played Barbara Gordon in a series of sequences that were ultimately cut from last year's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
