Batgirl movie a ‘high priority’ at Warners/DC

August 20th, 2019 by Marc Comments

We all remember that a couple of years ago Joss Whedon was sitting high at Warners with Justice League ready for release and his planned Batgirl movie ready to begin pre-production.

For the record, I was excited for a Whedon Batgirl…

But then Justice League turned out to be a disaster for Warners and Whedon and Warners soon parted ways.

But, it seems, after we reported on new names in the mix for the role (here), the movie and character is high on the list of must-film movies at Warners/DC.

While Wonder Woman is heading for her sequel next year and Birds of Prey (and The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is just around the corner, it looked like Suergirl was next on the list (as Cavill’s return as the Man of Steel looks more and more unlikely) but, no, according to Heroic Hollywood it’s Bargirl who is high priority.

Here’s what they say: “Batgirl is currently a big priority and the studio is even searching for a director for the project. Now, we don’t have any names as to who could direct Batgirl but this should be taken as good sign that Christina Hodson has delivered a fantastic script.”

Honestly, I would love to see Batgirl done properly and with Matt Reeves’ Batman movie filming next year and rumours of a Titans and Nightwing movie still floating around, this could be the beginning of a fully-realised Bat-family on the big screen.

Bring it on… just do it right, Warners.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
