Holy girl power, Batman! The man who brought made name Buffy and the Avengers (among others) a household name is now heading over to DC to bring Batgirl to life in her own standalone movie!

Variety is reporting that Whedon is nearing a deal with Warner Bros. to write, direct and produce the film as part of its DC Cinematic Extended Universe. At the moment, no other producers attached to the project, but once Whedon signs on the dotted line, I’m sure that won’t be a problem!

More to come….
