News came out yesterday that Avengers series alum Joss Whedon could be doing a Batgirl movie. Follow up shows which books he could be drawing from.
Hollywood Reporter had the story yesterday.
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.
Entertainment Weekly had this to say about the source for the potential movie:
Sources tell EW that this version will be Barbara Gordon, daughter of Commissioner Gordon, and the movie will use the DC Comics “New 52” version of the character as a starting point.
Batgirl #1 New 52 has sold for up to $30 on eBay. There are second print variants and third print variants as well. Also of interest seems to be Batgirl #35 New 52, the beginning of the Batgirl of Burnside storyline.
