Day 15: Character that should have their own movie
Well, since Jason Todd already has his own movie… BATGIRL, hello!
So Bruce Timm basically said they shelved Batgirl Year One because “The Exec’s decided because it wasn’t able to sell quickly right away, whereas ‘Justice League’ was, that there wouldn’t be any more female super hero films right now. We were developing and hoping to get started on a ‘Batgirl’ film based on ‘Year One,’ but because of ‘Wonder Woman’s’ slow sales start, that won’t be happening now.”
Now, I don’t know if you’ve read BG: Year One, but it is amazing. Pretty much anything Scott Beatty is on is incredible and this was written by both Beatty and Chuck Dixon, who put Babs into the Birds of Prey team. The art is incredible and the story is brilliant. I highly recommend it. And Barbara Gordon is a very popular character. (It also helps that I love her so very much, and yeah, I was utterly, utterly heartbroken when she was shot by the Joker.)
This movie needs to happen.
