Variety is reporting that the legendary Avengers and Buffy The Vampire Slayer director is in final talks with Warner Bros.to direct, write and produce the film, which will be part of the DCEU.
Warner Bros. has plans for another stand-alone superhero movie, and the studio has just the director for the project.
Hedge fund manager with Greenwich ties dies in NY
Charles Murphy was pronounced dead after 5 p.m.at the Sofitel building in what authorities are calling an apparent suicide. He reportedly owned a home on East 67th Street in Manhattan with eight bedrooms, 11 fireplaces, a gym and wine cellar.
Joss Whedon is famous for creating strong female protagonists. The most obvious being that for the first time DC has recruited from Marvel's stable of talent, and poached the one-time godfather of the MCU. The character was first introduced in Batman #139 (April 1961).
A potential Batgirl film is certainly welcomed news to comic book fans - and those wanting to see more female superhero leads in film. She is Barbara Gordon, the daughter of commissioner James Gordon, and has had a long history of fighting alongside Batman. Rosario Dawson voiced Batgirl who had a prominent role in WB's animated The Lego Batman Movie, which has grossed $293.1 million since its bow this February 10. However, she's also dealing with PTSD and survivor's guilt. Perhaps Nightwing...perhaps the Gotham City Sirens? Double-check. Bailed out the Dark Knight on countless occasions? He'll have DC Entertainment President Geoff Johns, another former DC Comics writer, to lean on to decide the best way to approach Batgirl on film.
Manchester City Aguero leveller for club keeps Liverpool at bay
WILLY CABALLERO insists he fully understood why boss Pep Guardiola was so happy with Manchester City's draw with Liverpool. The problem is I expect things like this from us and I can not run around after a draw against Man City.
Batgirl is an exceedingly popular character in the comic book world - although she has never been the recipient of her own standalone.
Her biggest change happened in Alan Moore's seminal work Batman: The Killing Joke (March 1998), where the Joker left the hero wheelchair-bound after a devastating attack. This Batgirl film adds to plans for a Suicide Squad sequel, Aquaman film in 2018 and Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson playing Black Adam in a Shazam film and spinoff. The studio, Warner Bros.is said to be closing in on a deal. More specifically, they claim the film will be based on the New 52 version of the character.
Draymond scores season-high 23 points in 114-100 win over Sacramento
Sacramento Kings Lineups: PG Darren Collison , SG Arron Afflalo, SF Buddy Hield , PF Skal Labissiere, C Willie Cauley-Stein. Golden State finished with 37 assists, a franchise-record 44th time this season the Warriors have had 30 or more in a game.
To be honest, I'm surprised Whedon's been seduced back to the realm of superheroes. However, tapping into this storyline in any way would be a risky move.
