Seppin’s mentor, Geoff Johns, was talking to DC Access yesterday and he dropped an intriguing little tidbit about Batgirl and when we can expect her movie. Johns indicated that Whedon would begin working on the film next year.
“But for Batman what I will say is that Batman is more than just Batman and, you know, it’s been way too long since we’ve seen, you know, an expansion of that universe, and Batgirl – we are doing Batgirl with Joss Whedon, it’s going to be super exciting. He’s going to start that next year, and that’s just the start,” he explained.
He could just be beginning the writing process, or he might be planning production. Either way, it sounds like Whedon is eager to get started.
