Two Female Writers Want To Give Words To Babs
Joss Whedon has stepped down as writer and director of the proposed Batgirl movie. With the success of Wonder Woman, a female may be the best choice to helm Batgirl. DKN’s Sharna Jahangir expressed this point in an opinion post.
Besides a female director, some think the script could also use a woman’s touch. Two female writers, one who is familiar with Batgirl, want the opportunity. After Whedon announced cutting ties with Batgirl, Bad Feminist author Roxane Gay offered her services. She even received a response from DC Entertainment.

Gay tweeted “Hey DC Comics, I can write your Batgirl movie, no prob.” Warner Bros. Entertainment and DC Comics VP Michele Wells responded: “If you’re serious…contact me.” Gay is no stranger to comics. She co-wrote Black Panther: World of Wakanda with Yona Harvey.
Former Batgirl comics writer Gail Simone also showed interest in the position. She also took to Twitter and has a concept in mind.
I actually thought of the perfect story for a Batgirl movie.

When someone suggested that Simone and Gay work together on Batgirl, Simone responded ‘I’m in.” Little is known about the proposed Batgirl film.
