Hi again Geeklings! There was snow this morning but the sun’s out now! It’s all about the big picture!
So, you’ve heard of Batgirl right? DC superhero, sometime partner of Batman? We’ve got some of her books and whatnot if you want to take a look, which I totally recommend you do. She’s one of my all-time favorite superheroes! Not only is orignal Batgirl Barbara Gordon ridiculously smart and tough and awesome, but one of the subsequent Batgirls, Stephanie Brown, was also a hero worth rooting for.
And my love of Batgirl is a little biased because, and this is totally canon… Barbara Gordon used to work in a library! She’s a librarian superhero! Even Stephanie Brown worked in her school library. The title and the profession just go hand-in-hand.
The reason I’m bringing her up is everyone got some pretty exciting news recently. Nothing’s official yet, but it looks like there is some talk of creating a Batgirl movie as part of DC’s Extended Universe of films. And who’s thinking of directing? None other than Joss Whedon! Creator of Buffy, director of Avengers, and all-around Geek Superhero!
OH MY GOSH I CAN’T EVEN RIGHT NOW!
How cool would that be? Seriously? It wouldn’t be the first time Gordon’s been on the big screen, though the last time is definitely not worth a mention. Whedon is famous for handling tough female heroes and doing them justice, so I think he’d be a great choice for this. And Batgirl has such a history and so many stories to choose from. There’s already speculation on who could be cast. Just… so much yes!
Again, nothing’s official yet, and as I’ve mentioned before the DCEU hasn’t had the best track record yet, but hope springs eternal. What do you guys think? Would you want to see this come to fruition? Do you think Whedon’s the best choice? Which of the Batgirls is your fave? Sound off below.
For now, let’s just hope the weather gets better. Enjoy the weekend, and until next time, End of Line.
