Joss Whedon will write, produce AND direct a Batgirl movie for the DCEU

More info coming soon...

100% agree! Glad Whedon is out and I'd love to see them give a lesser known director a shot - a female would obviously make the most sense.
Kinda glad Whedon not doing this anymore. I think they will go the wonder woman route and hire a female for it, which would be great as Wonder Woman was their best effort so far


See, I disagree with this. Not to say that I have anything against female directors- but I just think that the idea of gender shouldn't play in to directing at all.
First and foremost- the director that you choose for the project must be competent. In casting the all-female directors for Jessica Jones Season 2- the producers of the series stated that they wanted an element that male directors couldn't provide (which in of itself seems a bit sexist), and in Patty Jenkins interview argument with James (making an ass of himself- but still has valid points) Cameron, she stated that because of his gender that he wouldn't "Get it".

The arguments of what a female director can do as opposed to what a male director can do seems asinine and fairly trite considering that this commentary isn't based on any evidence, but is in of itself speculative.
After all- it's not like Steven Spielberg did a terrible job with The Color Purple because he's a white male.

All this :)

Totally agree! This 'positive-discrimination' (what they call it here in the Netherlands) is just plain stupid.

I hope she does a great job... and I'll save judgement until I see it. But I'm not going to lie. I'm disappointed. So close to Zoey getting the part and just like that, ripped away. :(

I love Brendan Fraser!
But... lets be honest here... he doesn't exactly look like George of the Jungle anymore. :bag:

Curious to see what their take on Firefly is going to be.
