Currently, there are only four or five films in the DC Comics lineup that are either in production, or going to be in production soon. Those are Aquaman (which is almost done and wraps up soon for its release date next year), SHAZAM! (which comes out April 2019, Wonder Woman 2 (which releases November 2019), Suicide Squad 2 (which is set to start filming in 2018 after Will Smith’s schedule clears up) and finally Flashpoint, which is apparently going to start soon as well. Thus, we’re waiting on news from other potential films, including the Joss Whedon helmed Batgirl film.
To be fair, not much is known about the film outside of Whedon’s involvement, as that was literally the film he was attached to when it was announced he’d join the DC Comics film lineup, this was before he was asked to help on Justice League due to Zack Snyder’s departure. We don’t even know who they’re considering for the role of Barbara Gordon. So…some stars are throwing their hat into the ring. Including Pitch Perfect star Hailee Steinfeld, who noted her desire for it after the interviewer pitched the idea to her:
“Not going to lie,” Steinfeld responded, “that’s kind of what I was thinking, but I didn’t know what to say. I would love that.”
Rumors state that the Batgirl film could start filming after SHAZAM! is done, or maybe even while its filming, it’s unclear at present. Hopefully, we’ll get new details soon.
