Joss Whedon on his casting process for Batgirl, developing the script

But thanks to some diligent wheedling from the Variety reporter, Whedon suggested that if he were thinking of casting, he would go with a fresh face rather than a well-known actress. I'm in a dialogue with her. Sometimes it's best to cast an unknown so the audience doesn't have preconceived notions on a particular actor/actress. He wants to create a new star through the role.

"I'm not against movie stars, they're great, but you need somebody who's going to be just right", Joss added. However, it seems that Joss Whedon is interested in going down an alternate route. Last spring at the Tribeca Film Festival, in a conversation with Hulk star Mark Ruffalo, Whedon made a public apology of sorts, saying his remarks were "a disservice to the movie, the studio and myself" and told Deadline he wasn't against working with Marvel again. And a situation like this, the name carries a lot of weight, so its not as critical. He helmed the first two films in the "Avengers" series before passing the baton to Joe and Anthony Russo for "Avengers: Infinity War".

There's no hard feelings as far as Marvel president Kevin Feige is concerned.

Of course, the press had a lot to ask Whedon about his next film, which is now in the writing stage, and who may play the title character. If it's good enough for Whedon, it'll nearly certainly be good enough for us.

Russian Think Tank Had Plans to Sway US Election
Some Russia media officials protested President Trump's move to give his daughter, Ivanka, a position in the White House. The officials said the hacking was a covert intelligence operation run separately out of the Kremlin.

Whedon also said that he does not have an "eye on anybody..."

Whedon is asked about the potential for Batgirl to be someone famous.

Last month it was announced that director Joss Whedon will be helming a Batgirl movie for DC. No word yet on when shooting might start or its release date. He is pictured at the "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" premiere on April 19, 2017 in Hollywood, California.
