Christina Hodson Writing Batgirl and Birds of Prey Movies


Batgirl is back on, though technically the film never stopped being in development. Christina Hodson is now in line to write the solo Batgirl film, this news comes on top of the news originally reported by Deadline and now confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter that she’s also writing the Birds of Prey  movir that is also featuring Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie).

With this news it’s quite possible that these two movies could link together more prominently, like an average film and its sequel.

Hodson is known for writing the thriller Unforgettable and the upcoming Bumblebee: The Movie spinoff.

Joss Whedon reportedly got let go from writing and directing the Batgirl film, saying “I really didn’t have a story” this reason as well as the response after Justice League became another critical failure got him booted off the project.

Though it turned out to be a financial success, many believed his added touch and the 2 hour time limit crippled Justice League’s full potential.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
