So, if you guys have not been living under a rock, you should know that former MCU director Joss Whedon will be directing the DCEU's version of Batgirl. Whedon seems to be going in the direction of telling us why Batgirl becomes Batgirl.
Even though he didn't have to, he contacted the MCU/Disney to let them know the news and he said they were absolutely looking forward to it. Whedon spoke with The Hollywood Reporter.
“She came up, and I started getting obsessed with how a young woman could get hardcore enough to need to put on the cowl. Like, What’s her damage?” Whedon said.
“She didn’t have her parents killed in an alley. Who is this person, who decides — rather than being forced to by their childhood trauma — decides to pick up this life?” he added. “How intense and driven that person is … I just couldn’t stop thinking about it.”
The first Avengers film is still my favorite MCU film, and based on his work with female heroes, I'm sure Batgirl will be a hit. What do you guys think?
