Joss Whedon May Direct Batgirl Movie

Batgirl could be getting the big-screen treatment via Joss Whedon.

Whedon is in negotiations to write, direct and produce a Batgirl stand-alone movie for Warner Bros., adding another heroine to the studio's DC cinematic universe.

Warner Bros. Pictures president Toby Emmerich will oversee the project, along with Jon Berg and Geoff Johns.

The most popular iteration of Batgirl was introduced in 1967 as Barbra Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City police commissioner and frequent Batman foil James Gordon. She often aligns herself with Batman, Robin and Nightwing/Dick Grayson.

Batgirl will be the second female superhero stand-alone in Warner Bros. DCU (Wonder Woman will hit theaters on June 2). Whedon has long been credited as a pioneering voice for female-focused genre fare, having created the hit TV show Buffy The Vampire Slayer two decades ago.

Joss Whedon is no stranger to superhero movies. He directed both The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron for Disney.
