The Avengers director Joss Whedon will be switching sides, moving over to Warner Bros. to direct Batgirl for them. The film will be a standalone outing for the hero and will be a part of the DC Extended Universe. Whether that means we can expect to see characters like Batman and Nightwing show up is unknown, but we’d be surprised if they don’t at least stop by for a quick cameo of some sort.Aside from Whedon, no one else is attached to the project at the moment, but from what we understand, this is all fairly new. The project only originated in the past month or so. Of course, there’s no word yet on who the studio may be eyeing for the titular role, but already fans are putting forth their casting wishlists, with Emma Stone seeming to be a pretty popular choice among many, as she has been for some time now.
Reports has it that characters from the world of Gotham will feature in the film.
