Joss Whedon is still hard at work on wrapping up Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Therefore, the Buffy creator and former Marvel filmmaker won’t appear at SDCC. After production is complete, the expectation is that Whedon will begin putting things together for Batgirl’s impending standalone. Aside from a few teases from the man himself, as he’ll write and direct, very little is known about the film. However, Geoff Johns’ recent interview with IGN (via Heroic Hollywood) may shed light on what Whedon will be up to in the coming months.
In talking DCEU films, Johns said the following:
“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.”
