Given that Batman is back on both big and small screens, it’s refreshing to be able to report that another character from his universe is moving forward with her own story. Warner Bros. has Bad Boys For Life directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah aboard the Batgirl film.
Little is known about the story for this one, though it would most likely revolve around Barbara Gordon. Birds Of Prey writer Christina Hodson has worked on the script. Batgirl appeared destined to be Joss Whedon‘s next film in 2017, but he left after a year of development, saying he couldn’t crack the story.
“With Batgirl, we hope to take the audience on a fun ride and see a different side of Gotham,” says producer Kristin Burr. “Christina’s script is crackling with spirit. Adil and Bilall have an excited and joyous energy which is infectious, making them the perfect filmmakers for this Batproject. And I’m just psyched I get to be part of the DC universe, which is super cool.”
And this isn’t the first superhero project the directors are involved in: they’re also among the filmmakers who worked on the Disney+ Ms. Marvel series.
