Whedon Still Attached To “Batgirl”

Earlier today a report sneaked online that filmmaker Joss Whedon was quietly dumped from writing and directing the upcoming “Batgirl” movie.

The rumor gained traction in the wake of both reshoots on “Justice League” that ran longer than expected, that films middling reviews and box office performance, Whedon’s own personal problems, and his recent ‘tweet slam’ of the film’s villain Steppenwolf.

However sources for EW close to the production say Whedon is currently at work on the script and remains attached to direct as well. Things could change, especially with the future of the DCEU seemingly in flux right now, but at this time Whedon is still very much attached.
