So “Wonder Women” is getting her own movie this year. We have “Captain Marvel” coming out in 2019. Now we have Warner Bros. greenlighting a “Batgirl” movie to be written and directed by Joss Whedon.
I think this is a pretty big sign that females in superhero films are gonna soon take over, big time. I think there will be many more female superhero films coming in the future. What other female superheroes can they make movies of?
Well, I think they should give Supergirl another try. I think Harley Quinn would get her own movie soon. There’s also She-Hulk, that would be pretty cool. It would also be cool if Jean Grey of the X-Men can get her own film. There’s also Kitty Pryde and Hawkgirl, a few more to name.
As far as Batgirl goes, I wonder what version of Batgirl that Whedon is planning on going for? I hope he plans on going for the Barbara Gordon/Oracle story ’cause that would be pretty cool. If he decides to go for the original Betty Kane, I’ll be alright with that as well. I hope Whedon picks a good actress for Batgirl and hope he does a good job with it.
I think we definitely need more female lead superhero films for sure ’cause there isn’t much out there. I do think however, the only reason WB’s want to make a Batgirl movie is they are hoping to compete against Marvel’s “Captain Marvel” movie. Period?
