In the wake of the news that Joss Whedon is no longer attached to Warner Bros.' upcoming Batgirl movie, the burning question now is just who will write and direct? Here's a novel idea - give the project to a woman.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
Mixed reactions to Justice League aside, Warner Bros. is going to keep on making movies based on DC Comics' vast stable of superhero characters. Of course, that's not going to change. According to a new Variety article, what will change are the people in charge of those films and the people performing in them.
There's no doubt Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn was the standout character in Suicide Squad. It's why, since then, we've heard the character will not only be in Suicide Squad 2, but possibly a Gotham City Sirens movie as well as a Harley and Joker movie. But the actress is reportedly working on a fourth Harley movie that has nothing to do with any of those.
Last week, a Change.org petition asking for the release of Zack Snyder's director's cut of Justice League made headlines. But, it turns out, even if Warner Bros. wanted to put out another version of the film, it's unlikely that Snyder even finished a director's cut in the first place.
When I first saw the end credits scene of Justice League, it was incredibly exciting. The scene sets up some intriguing possibilities for the future of the DC universe and does so with several surprises. However, the more and more I've thought about it over the past few days, the more and more it's been bugging me.
Zack Snyder's Justice League is both the best and worst of everything we've seen from the Warner Bros. DC Extended Universe movies. There are plenty of things to like, and about an equal number to dislike. But ultimately, its good things bumped up against the bad enough to leave me with hope and excitement for what's to come.
Ever since Warner Bros. stepped up to challenge Disney/Marvel for cinematic universe supremacy, there have been ways the DCEU has tried to set itself apart. Mostly, that had involved having a lot more neck breaking and "Martha!" shouting, but it also had to do with the lack of post-credits scenes. Well, looks like Justice League isn't treading that high road any more, at least according to star Jason Momoa.
Suicide Squad, a bad movie, made quite a bit of money -- meaning that regardless of how little most people cared for it, Warner Bros. never doubted the possibility of making a sequel. According to a new report from Deadline, though, the studio continues to have trouble finding a director.
One of the biggest knocks against the DC Extended Universe has been its general lack of vibrant colour compared to the comic books. In exchange for gritty realism, the DCEU -- especially its costumes -- come across as unsaturated and dour. That's a shame because, up close, the League's costumes look great.
