Good news: Batgirl has been deemed worthy of a solo movie, and is getting her own DC Extended Universe film! Great news: Joss Whedon is writing, directing and producing it.

According to Variety, no other producers are currently attached to the project, but Toby Emmerich (president and chief content officer of Warner Bros. Pictures Group) is overseeing it alongside Jon Berg and Geoff Johns.

Whilst some might complain that there's no female currently attached to the team behind the scenes, Whedon's history of writing females in films and TV series more than makes up for that in our opinion - you only have to look at Buffy or how the women are treated equally in Firefly/Serenity (or more so since Summer Glau is a complete bad ass in Serenity saving everyone more than once).

Whedon's interpretation of the character won't be the first time that Batgirl has featured in a film. If you want to remember those awful Batman films that came after Batman Returns but before Batman Begins, Alicia Silverstone played Barbara Wilson in Batman & Robin. Barbara Gordon then starred in The LEGO Batman Movie, voiced by Rosario Dawson, earlier this year.
