Geoff Johns says Joss Whedon will start work on Batgirl in 2018

In a recent interview with IGN, DC Entertainment chief creative officer Geoff Johns played coy about the full extent of Warner Bros.' plans for the Bat-family's corner of the swiftly expanding DC Extended Universe, though he did offer a rather intriguing piece of new information. Essentially, we have seen the same thing repeatedly - albeit delivered with various tones and aesthetics applied - and while those are all great films in their own ways, there's much more to be explored. He's going to start that next year, and that's just the start.

After setting the film up as being written, directed and performed by Academy Award victor Ben Affleck, the script and helming duties have now been handed to Matt Reeves, while Affleck will concentrate on his portrayal of the Dark Knight. We are doing "Batgirl" with Joss Whedon, it's gonna be super exciting and he's gonna start that next year. We want to explore the Batman universe in a very big, new way...

So there you have it. Whedon will begin production on Batgirl in 2018!

"Let me be clear", says Affleck, "Batman is the greatest f-king part in the world".

DC Confirmed that a sequel to Wonder Woman is happening.

During the midst of the San Diego Comic-Con Hall H panel for Justice League, the cast took the time to quell any fears on the status of the film following reshoots and the change in director late into production. However, Johns doesn't necessarily see the DCEU becoming dominated by Batman movies.

Batgirl's first comic appearance in 1967 was as Barbara Gordon, daughter of Commissioner James Gordon, and she later became an ally of Batman and Robin in Gotham City. She was recently voiced by Rosario Dawson in The LEGO Batman Movie. "Having Wonder Woman in Justice League is exciting because, again, there's such a different audience than the typical audience that went to see that movie, and now they'll see Justice League and get to be introduced to all these other characters like Aquaman and Flash and Cyborg, and see Batman and the whole gang together".
