Joss Whedon all but confirmed that he is helming Warner Bros.’ Batgirl film, going so far as to humor the inquisitive reporter asking him about casting for Barbara Gordon.
In the midst of his media-trained reply, Whedon implied that he won’t be looking at a “name” actress, but rather an unknown actress to embody the police commissioner’s daughter-turned-vigilante.

It’s not exactly a done deal just yet, but news that Joss Whedon is in talks to write, direct and produce a solo Batgirl film definitely took everyone by surprise late last week.

Of course, it’s still early days yet. Whedon has not cast his Batgirl. And that’s why we’re here. We have 17 suggestions.
