Batgirl movie possible in the works

This film could be set up from Batgirl’s point of view during The Killing Joke storyline, showing her history as Batgirl and then her fight to overcome the attack by the Joker and her newfound paralysis. It could be the introduction of her as Oracle.

Batgirl is the superhero identity of Barbara Gordon, who is also the daughter of Gotham Police Commissioner Jim Gordon. She takes up the mantle of Batgirl and fights alongside Batman and later becomes his tech assistant known by the codename Oracle.

Director Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon debuted to mixed reviews, but during the media tour for the movie Refn spoke about his desire to direct a superhero film.

At one point, Refn was campaigning to direct the upcoming Wonder Woman movie that is now staring Gal Gadot with Patty Jenkins in the director’s chair. So the prospect of directing a superhero film is still fresh in his mind.
