The cancellation of DC Comics adaptation Batgirl set the online film press alight, but what’s the story behind this now-shelved $90m movie?
The Australian model-turned-actress will make her debut in the Arrowverse crossover episode 'Elseworld'.
"I started getting obsessed with how a young woman could get hardcore enough to need to put on the cowl," said the director of his upcoming DC project.
Could Lindsay Morgan be the new big screen Batgirl? Well, how about that – barely a day after news broke that Joss Whedon is in talks to write and direct ‘Batgirl,‘ we have our first rumour as to who may be in line to take the title role in the Warner Bros/DC movie. Speculation is rife that Lindsey Morgan of TV’s ‘The 100’ may have been cast as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon – although admittedly the evidence isn’t exactly watertight.
It looks as though James Gunn almost made a DC movie. During a Facebook Q&A, the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ director revealed that he passed up opportunities to make a DC movie… and he likely wouldn’t be interested now, either. Of course, James Gunn is now firmly embedded in Marvel’s big screen universe.
