Earlier today, we reported that Joss Whedon is still trying to figure out the kind of Batgirl he wants to bring to the big screen, and will settle on that before trying to find the right actor to match.

Joss Whedon Just Crushed All Batgirl Casting Rumors but Had a Fun Suggestion

A totally serious one. I swear.

Noted geek Joss Whedon stopped by the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 premiere last night, and that gave him a chance to talk about his own upcoming comic book adaptation: the recently announced Batgirl movie.

Joss Whedon to Direct Standalone Batgirl Movie! Here Are My Very Mixed Feelings

If there's one area in which Warner Bros./DC Entertainment seems to be besting Marvel Entertainment it's in putting its solo female heroes front and center in their cinematic universe. Sure, Marvel has finally gotten around to a Captain Marvel movie, but DC has Wonder Woman coming out this summer, and a Batgirl movie currently in development, with a director who knows a thing or two about female, teen heroes. Joss Whedon is set to direct Barbara Gordon's first solo feature.

Batgirl vs. Oracle: The Erasure of DC’s One Superhero With a Disability

The editor had no plans for Barbara Gordon after her shooting in The Killing Joke. Except for her survival, it was a classic example of fridging—and not of a superhero’s girlfriend, but of a popular superheroine in her own right. So, you’d think I’d be happy when DC decided that for the New 52 reboot, Babs was getting surgery in South Africa and coming back as an able-bodied Batgirl. I wasn't.

Just ... don't worry about it. It's cute.

I used to refer to Gotham as DC's twist on Muppet Babies, but I'm officially eating my hat about those jokes, because the upcoming TV show DC's Superhero Girls created an alternate universe that put all of DC's heroines in high school together (and also makes them all high school-aged).
