Joss Whedon to Create Batgirl Standalone Film
Superhero films are the norm these days, and another character has been slated for a standalone film.  Joss Whedon has almost finalized a deal to bring Batgirl to the big screen.

Whedon will write, direct, and produce the film for  Warner Bros. as part of its DC Extended Universe.

Batgirl came onto the DC Comic scene in 1967.  Her name was Barbara Gordon and was the daughter of Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon.

Joss Whedon is no stranger to this genre of film; he wrote and directed  "The Avengers" and "Avengers: Age of Ultron" for Disney-Marvel. He was also extremely successful in TV, creating "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Angel," "Firefly," "Dollhouse," and "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.".

Other DC films coming down the pipeline include "Wonder Woman"; "Justice League," debuting Nov. 17; and "Aquaman", as well as a sequel and for "Suicide Squad" and "Gotham City Sirens," which is a spin-off to "Suicide Squad", "The Batman" and "Shazam".
