Warner Bros. Batgirl film has finally found its directors. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Bad Boys for Life directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah will helm the film.
The filmmakers have closed a deal to direct the feature focused on Barbara Gordon’s Batgirl. It was previously announced that the project will debut on the Warner Bros. streaming service HBO Max.
First appearing in Detective Comics #359, Barabra Gordon is the daughter of Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon and a prominent member of the batfamily. She fought alongside Batman and co. for years as Batgirl, until the Joker severely injured her spine, making her a paraplegic and forcing her to fight crime a different way. Known as Oracle, Gordon provided intelligence and computer hacking services to assist her fellow superheroes, eventually becoming a founding member of the Birds of Prey.
Christina Hodson penned the script for the project. She previously wrote Bumblebee, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), and DC’s upcoming film The Flash.
The project has been through a number of changes, the most notable being Joss Whedon’s exit in 2018.
