@Jon4Lakers Wait... now I know what happened to my internet today!
Not all hope is lost yet for Warner Brothers proposed Batgirl film as a new writer has been chosen.
Christina Hodson has landed the job of writing the script for the film based on the female Caped Crusader. She is also the scribe of the upcoming Bumblebee Transformers spinoff film, and 2017’s thriller Unforgettable.
The Batgirl film has been up in the air after Joss Whedon departed the project two months ago. The stated reason was that after a year of working on the project he had been unable to come up with a way to break the story.
What still isn’t clear is if the Batgirl film is part of the DC Extended Universe of films or if it will stand on its own. In the grand scheme of this project it is a minor quibble as just getting this film into theaters is clearly going to be the first hurdle.
