Not quite a done deal yet, but everyone is sure buzzing about the idea of Buffy/Firefly/The Avengers Joss Whedon signing on with Warner Brothers to bring Batgirl to the big screen.
With the Batman movie delayed (again!), WB seems to be looking to get something rolling and are trying to sign Whedon to work the magic he did for Marvel for the DC Universe.
Whedon would write and direct the standalone Batgirl film. With his deft handling of strong female characters (Buffy, Black Widow, and Zoe from Firefly to name a few), he seems the perfect choice.
This would be Whedon’s first venture into the DC Comic’s Universe after his success with heading up Marvel’s Phase 1 (and writing/directing The Avengers and The Avengers: Age of Ultron).
