Two months ago screenwriter Joss Whedon decided he didn’t want to continue working on a “Batgirl” film.  A woman has now stepped up to take his spot.

Warner Bros. has found its new writer in Christina Hodson.  Hodson’s credits include Shut in and the upcoming Transformers spin off Bumblebee: The Movie.

Though quite a few have taken on the role as ‘Batgirl’ the film will focus on Barbara Gordon’s version.

Paste Magazine gives us more info on the character.   The daughter of Commissioner Barbara is a headstrong woman with strong natural gifts in gymnastics and martial arts.

As Batgirl, she becomes part of the so-called “Bat Family” of extended heroes that includes the likes of Robin, Nightwing, Huntress, Black Canary, Spoiler and so many others in the Batman comics.

Batgirl made her film appearance wit Batman & Robin in 1997.  Alicia Silverstone played the character

No word on who will star in the film, but a short list was leaked last year.
