'Batgirl' gets new writer
los Angeles, April 10 (IANS) The script of "Batgirl" will now be written by Christina Hodson instead of Joss Whedon.
This will mark Hodson's return to the DC Extended Universe after writing for "Birds of Prey", reports variety.com.
Hodson has projects like "Shut In" and "Unforgettable" to her credit. She has also been roped in to write the script for "Bumblebee", the upcoming "Transformers" spinoff with Hailee Steinfeld and John Cena.
Whedon had exited "Batgirl" in February citing issues with the story.
He had said in a statement: "'Batgirl' is such an exciting project, and Warners/DC such collaborative and supportive partners, that it took me months to realise I really didn't have a story."
"Batgirl" will portray the life of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of police commissioner James Gordon, who doubles as one of Batman's sidekicks named Batgirl.
