The "How It Should Have Ended" team gave us the DC superhero team-up we deserve, uniting Batgirl, Supergirl, and Wonder Woman in their imagined alternate ending.Read More
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. That doesn't mean we have to wait. Now, you already know how much I would love to see Lindsey Morgan take the role. That said, here are some awesome ladies that would also be amazing contenders.Read More
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. Ever since news of the upcoming movie broke, the rumor mill has been working overtime, already producing a casting theory, but Whedon took some time to crush that along with any others.Read More
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.Read More
Is it weird that I'm as excited for The LEGO Batman Movie as I am for Wonder Woman? That's not weird, right?Read More
So cute and funny and omg ROSARIO DAWSON IS BATGIRL.
All of a sudden, I care about DC characters again, what with yesterday's absolutely excellent debut of the official full-length Wonder Woman trailer, and today's new trailer for the LEGO Batman movie, introducing us to Rosario Dawson's version of Batgirl. YESSSS.Read More
In the simplest terms, The Killing Joke was not good.Read More

Yes, that looks like The Killing Joke, alright.

At New York Comic Con, I had the chance to talk to Brenden Fletcher and Babs Tarr about Batgirl, which Fletcher co-writes with Cameron Stewart, and which Tarr illustrates. The interview began with us trading a few jokes about Batgirl's costume, which somehow still provokes inexplicable internet ire.Read More
Alysia Yeoh got married. ALYSIA YEOH GOT MARRIED. YES!
There's one major, major thing that happens in this issue that I really wanted to take the time to focus on but felt pressed for time on in the video: Alysia Yeoh got freakin' MARRIED!Read More
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.Read More
The cinematic follow-up to The LEGO Movie, which is called LEGO Batman and will feature Will Arnett's reprisal of his comedic turn as the caped crusader, just cast Rosario Dawson as its LEGO Batgirl.Read More
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).Read More
