When watching a film from DC’s Extended Universe, also known as DCEU, we may all wonder why there is no other female superhero other than Wonder Woman. Even after releasing Man of Steel in 2013, DC and Warner Bros. were unable to build a world of film the way Marvel did. Even though Warner Bros and DC decided to build their world of film Today we’ll see if Batgirl is really in the works.
Even after this decision, we only saw Wonder Woman. And the only female lead in a DC film who says anything about is Catwoman is The Dark Knight Rises, it’s also more than just Batman’s sidekick than being the lead. When Joss Whedon joined the Justice League team as director, as Zack Snyder’s replacement, WB Studios, also asked him to write, direct, and produce the Batgirl film that was announced in 2017.
Joss Whedon agreed to make the Batgirl film. The original plan was to produce a screenplay that took inspiration from Barbara Gordon’s 52 new incarnations. In the following months, there were even a few developments regarding the film. But things went downhill when Whedon left the project in February 2018.
Is The Batgirl Project Still In Production?
So far, there have been no updates related to the film, except for the small news that after Whedon’s department, Christina Hodson was given the task of writing the script. Hodson wrote Birds of prey and Flash for Warner Bros. But there is still no information regarding his first DC stint, Batgirl.
But recently in the AT&T Analyst & Investor Day 2021 presentation that occurred recently, there was some kind of official confirmation from Warner Bros. and that DC Films Bat woman film still under development! During the discussion regarding DC, the property was going on, a graphic appeared on the screen showing the many logos for various DC films, shows, and video games. And among them, there is a logo for Bat woman. This is the reason why we can assume that the film is still in development.
However, there is still not much confirmation regarding this upcoming DC film. Since Joss Whedon is no longer involved in the project, a new director is needed and for that, DC is thinking about assigning the film to a female director. This has happened before, because we saw both Wonder Woman films directed by a female director, Patty Jenkins. But the problem is who will be assigned to the role.

If there’s Batgirl going on under the DC Extended Universe, then there’s a good chance the film could be released on HBO Max. seven years since Man of Steel, Warner Bros, and DC Films have recently begun making plans for the future of the DCEU. Despite the current pandemic, hindering the development of the DCEU’s upcoming plans, it is hoped that they have five live-action films in the works that will be released soon and along with many other films in various stages of development.
While Bat girl yet having a director assigned, the film could be the original HBO Max.

Among the many films that will be released directly to streaming services, Hamada said that one of the titles listed will be released as the original HBO Max.
But Hamada hasn’t said which film, we’ll assume Batgirl. To date, DC hasn’t made any films exclusively for HBO Max. But recently they were released Wonder Woman 1984, to HBO Max and theaters at the same time. We also know that Justice League Zack Snyder will be one more in the upcoming DC films, HBO Max and also James Gunn. Suicide Squad.
