Joss Whedon will write, direct, and produce an untitled "Batgirl" movie for Warner Bros. as part of its DC Extended Universe.
Batgirl first appeared in DC Comics in 1967 as Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon in “The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl!” by writer Gardner Fox and artist Carmine Infantino.
Rumored to be based on the New 52 Batgirl. Barbara Gordon after she had recovered from The Joker shooting her in the spine (as depicted in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke) due to experimental surgery. Although still haunted by the event, she’s out of the wheelchair and back on the streets fighting crime. Like that run of the comics, the Batgirl movie is expected to carry a gritty tone, and hopefully will also include Ben Affleck’s Batman and J.K. Simmons’ Commissioner Gordon.
