Joss Whedon to Write, Direct Batgirl DC Extended Universe Movie

Scarlett Johansson plays The Major in Ghost in the Shell from Paramount

While Warner Bros. and DC figure out what to do about the Batman solo film that's hit a wall in production, a more feminine fan of flying rodents may swoop in and grab the spotlight. Picture Groups, Toby Emmerich, is working on overseeing the project along with Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.

Felicity Jones, Emma Stone and Amandla Stenberg are just three actresses would all make a great Batgirl in Joss Whedon's rumored film. However, it turns out that Whedon is not done with the DC universe.

As hard-core Scoobies are all too aware, Whedon's major contribution to 20th century pop culture remains the badass Buffy canon, perhaps the most feminist of all female superheroes of all time.

Whedon also created other cult-favourite TV shows like Angel, Firefly and Dollhouse, and co-created Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Batgirl is a DC property.

States Scramble To Expand Obamacare After GOP Flop
Obama's health care law encouraged states to expand their Medicaid programs by promising to pay most of the costs. Kansas Republicans, who control the state legislature, had never been very interested in broadening the program.

The movie will be Warner Bros. second superhero movie centered around a female character following Wonder Woman, which drops on June 2. Batgirl will mark a return (of sorts) to DC movies for the director, who previously worked on Wonder Woman scripts in the early 2000s that never got off the ground. The character was infamously left disabled after being shot by the Joker during The Killing Joke and became Oracle, computer expert and information broker who assisted other heroes.

As aforementioned, the character's only live action appearance was in Batman and Robin where she was played by Alicia Silverstone.

Apart from directing and writing "Batgirl", Joss Whedon will also produce it. Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Suicide Squad all made tons of money but polarized audiences thanks to their grim and gritty vibes.
