Patty Jenkins is "excited" about speculation Joss Whedon will produce a Batgirl film.
The 45-year-old American film director is over the moon the 52-year-old screenwriter is in talks with Warner Bros. Pictures to create a production centred on the female superhero, because she believes Whedon's work will allow him to take on a "fun approach" with the project.
Speaking about the speculation around Whedon taking on the movie to Toronto Sun Online, the brunette beauty said: "But if it is done, then I'm excited about it.
"I think it's super exciting. The tone of Joss' work is great for female superheroes. He takes such a fun approach and I think he'll have fun in the DC universe, which will be excited to have him."
However, Jenkins is still unsure whether Whedon has confirmed he will be helming the creative process of the movie.
She explained: "I don't even know if that deal is done or not - I don't have the inside scoop on that."
And Jenkins has revealed she is keen to see the work of "a lot of directors".
She added: "There are a lot of directors I'm really excited about and the storylines are all vastly different, with different tones and very different approaches to storytelling. I think there's a treasure trove of great characters here. Jason [Momoa] is off to do 'Aquaman' right now - that's such a cool story. It has its own vibe and dynamic completely. I'm excited to see each one of these films."
Meanwhile Jenkins, who is currently behind the forthcoming fantasy film 'Wonder Woman' starring Gal Gadot as the lead character Diana Prince, has praised the 31-year-old actress as being "supernaturally beautiful" and for being a "kind" and intelligent female.
Speaking about the star, Jenkins said: "Gal's supernaturally beautiful and unbelievably kind and thoughtful and intelligent and wise, yet bright and youthful and hopeful in such a sweet way."
