There has only ever been one Batgirl appearance on the big screen and that was in the ill-fated Joel Schumacher debacle, "Batman & Robin" back in 1997. The idea behind this film is to follow the lead of "Suicide Squad" and "Wonder Woman" by making a strong and clear vision of Barbara Gordon that can interact with the new cinematic universe, possibly in the upcoming "Gotham City Sirens" film, which is a sequel to "Suicide Squad".
No release date or casting details have been revealed. Stay tuned to Legions of Gotham for the latest on "Batgirl".
