Howdy my Super Hero loving friends!!

Did you know that Batgirl is coming out with her very own flick? For once, she takes the lead and gets the spotlight all to herself. I had to research this further just to see what can be found. I have a feeling we may not be able to find too much, simply because I haven’t heard much about it, meaning… my investigative skills have to be on point if I’m gonna find the scoop on this one… and I will find it…. So here we go…

Joss Whedon has come aboard to work on this project as not only the director but, the writer as well and…. as of now, no other producers have signed on. Whedon is making a huge leap here from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to DC. He has some big named films with Marvel-Disney under his belt already including, writing and directing, The Avenger’s & The Avenger’s: Age Of Ultron. He is also the creator of some top-rated television shows such as Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dollhouse, Firefly, & Agents Of The Shield. Finding out this tad-bit of information leads me to believe this Batgirl film is in excellent hands. This man is a genius!

Batgirl’s popularity has always been there, and we have all loved her, yet this is the first we’ve seen her in her very own film. I think it’s a long time coming myself. So many heroes have been getting their stories told the last few years, and lately, DC has been doing an excellent job of bringing the Justice League together, it was only a matter of time.

The scene is based on back to 1967 when Batgirl’s story was first told. Barbara Gordon, daughter of the one and only James Gordon… Police Commissioner of Gotham, first appeared as the character in the issue titled, “The Million Dollar Debut Of Batgirl.”

This film will be the second of it’s kind to feature a female super hero, following the release of Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot, which debuted June 2nd.

A precise release date for the film has yet to be set. But, back in April during the premier of, Guardian’s OF The Galaxy: Vol. 2, Whedon was quoted as saying…

“It is a little early to tease anything besides the existence of it. We weren’t eve talking about Batgirl- it came up as part of another conversation and then we all got so excited that the movie suddenly appeared. So, that’s a perfect sign to me. It wasn’t a slot they were trying to fill. We all just started talking about her and then I couldn’t stop. So, that’s a good feeling.”

It has been said that once Whedon wraps this up with the up and coming Justice League film, he will turn his attention to Batgirl. This may be the most official piece of information out there. At least it gives us some sort of time frame.
It isn’t clear as to how far back the discussion for the film started but, back in 2016 Whedon did mention that he had begun working on, “A story about a girl that goes through some unbelievable s***.” So… this could have been in the works for much longer than we even thought… And if so, to me, this means that it’s release really may not be too far off as suspected.. it also means that the movie has been being perfected this whole time. I mean, all signs here point that this film will be fantastic!

Now, as to who will be cast in the lead role as Batgirl herself, a shortlist of actresses has been leaked… lucky for us! Whedon is surely hoping that this film will share in the success of its predecessor, Wonder Woman, and if it’s going to, that means casting the lead role has to be spot on! According to a Reddit user…here are our options so far….

Olivia Cooke (Bates Motel), Elle Fanning (Neon Demon), Bella Thorne (Shake It Up), Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers), Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why), Jane Levy (Don’t Breathe), Naomi Scott (Power Rangers), Haley Lu Richardson (Edge Of Seventeen) & Emma Roberts (Scream Queens)

How do yall feel about this list? Is there one that stands out to you or do you think someone better has been overlooked? If, I had to choose out of this list… I think Emma Roberts would be great. Batgirl is just that… a girl.. not a woman. Emma has a way of showing her youth while staying active…. an important trait for a Batgirl actress to have. In my opinion. What’s your opinion? Let me hear it friends… comment, comment and comment again! I soooo want to hear what you think!

Well, friends… that’s it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by Ky’s Korner!! Talk to you tomorrow!

  1. This is amazing! I didn’t know that there would be a batgirl movie coming out! I thought it would be a couple more years and the cement of the Justice League before they would do that!

    For me Elle Fanning is quite perfect. From her looks she will be perfect. I remember when Alicia Silverstone played this well before. I love her hair and body on the old Batman films. I am waiting for Robin, you know Batman and Robin.

    I think Batgirl was just not as famous and marketable, since Batman is running the show pretty big, and even Robin seems to be getting more love from the fans. Lets hope this turns out well for Batgirl.

    Gosh, we have the same thoughts about Emma Roberts! I think she would fit best in this role because of her personality. But whoever it is, she’s got a big role to fill after the success of Wonder Woman. I’m excited!

    A lot of people think Anna Kendrick would be great for the role. lol. IDK, I think because of her quirky vibe. But if she gets chosen, it would really be fun! I know she’s a little too old to play the role, but she doesn’t look like 31 at all! Let’s see what happens.

    Had no idea that there was going to be a bat girl movie. I’ve always liked the batman franchise and loved everything about it but since I’m female, I’m really into girl characters.

    This is something I’d definitely watch and hope that the story line is good!! Thanks for the heads up Ky.

    @amaterasu They’re probably cashing in on female heroines this time around… but my bet is Nightwing will probably come up next on the list of superheroes. But I’m sure glad you mentioned Nightwing, the coolest superhero on DC universe, Cheers!
