Although she already has a film in development, Batgirl might be getting her own series on the DC Universe. A new report claims that the new show would star Barbara Gordon and begin shooting early next year.
DC Universe has reportedly ordered a 13-episode live-action series revolving around Barbara Gordon as Batgirl, but it’s not clear if it will live in the same universe as Titans and Doom Patrol. Although it will have no relation to the upcoming Batgirl film, its existence may affect when the movie gets made. Warner Bros. Television is looking to start shooting the new series sometime February 2019 with a possible 2020 release date.
The news comes from our trusted source, Lance Ausfresser (via FandomWire), who also runs multiple DC-based groups on social media. We haven’t been able to confirm any further info on our side, but we will update as soon as it comes to us.
Word is that they’re very confident in the show and that’s why they’re getting ready to film sooner rather than later. The question that remains is who they will cast as Batgirl herself, something I think will be answered in the coming months.
