CBMB: Batgirl Movies Finds a New Writer

By Muuka Muyumba

The one-time Birds of Prey writer, Christina Hodson has been hired to help write a Batgirl film for Warners Bros., and DC Films. Hodson apparently has wowed Warners executive with her take on Birds of Prey, helping her land the new writing gig. Some rumors suggest that Batgirl will actually be introduced in Birds of Prey, and then will strike out on her own in the solo film.

In February, Warners announced that Joss Whedon has departed from the project after a flashy announcement in 2017 just shortly before he came on to direct Justice League from Zack Snyder. Many minds were puzzled by Whedon’s assertion he couldn’t break the story.

Today, we learned that Cathy Yan had been tapped to direct Hodson’s script for Birds of Prey, so one has to wonder if Warners will continue its trend of female directors leading their female-led projects. Yan joins Patty Jenkins on Wonder Woman 2 and Ava DuVernay on New Gods.

Warners is said to be positioning Batgirl to be a break out character for the future of its cinematic universe which will likely pivot away from the main retread characters like Batman and Superman to build a bigger world to compete with Marvel Studios.

Warners still hasn’t made an expressed plans for its future slate beyond Shazam! next spring.
