Batgirl lost a writer, but it may have another one in the wings.
Comic book writer Roxane Gay has offered her services for Warner Brothers’ Batgirl solo film, via Twitter. Gay even received a reply on Twitter from Warner Brothers VP Michelle Wells. The tweet is inviting Gay to contact Wells if she’s serious about her desire to write the script.
If you’re serious…contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org

Please note that this does not guarantee Gay will get the job, but it is an exciting development.

This comes after Avengers writer-director Joss Whedon stepped down from the project after admitting to the Hollywood Reporter, “Batgirl is such an exciting project, and Warners/DC such collaborative and supportive partners, that it took me months to realize I really didn’t have a story.”
Whedon had kind words for DC, stating, “I’m grateful to Geoff and Toby and everyone who was so welcoming when I arrived, and so understanding when I… uh, is there a sexier word for ‘failed’?”
Whedon is referring to Geoff Johns and Toby Emmerich, the heads of DC Entertainment and Warners Picture Group president respectively. Batgirl was not Whedon’s first foray into the world of DC. Whedon took over directing duties for Zack Snyder’s Justice League in addition to rewriting its script.
