Mumbai: The DC Extended cinematic universe is all set to expand with 'Batgirl' and Joss Whedon is expected to give her the big-screen treatment.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Whedon is in negotiations to write, direct and produce a Batgirl stand-alone movie for Warner Bros.

 

Toby Emmerich, the president of Warner Bros. Pictures, will oversee the project along with Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.

Whedon has long been credited as a pioneering voice for female-focused genre fare, having created the hit TV show 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' two decades ago.

Joss Whedon's most notable comic book movie work has been with Marvel, having written and directed ' The Avengers' and 'Age of Ultron' for Disney.

'Batgirl' is the superhero persona of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Batman's mate Commissioner James Gordon, who made an appearance in 1997 movie 'Batman and Robin' as Barbara Wilson, played by Alicia Silverstone.
