Batgirl is an upcoming DC movie based on vigilante Barbara Gordon. In 2017, Joss Whedon was hired to write and direct the film for Warner Bros. before leaving the project in 2018. Now, Warner Bros. has hired director duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, the team that led Bad Boys For Life to direct the next film based on a script by Christina Hodson. El Arbi and Fallah are also executive producers of the upcoming Disney Plus Ms. Marvel series.
