Just a few months after it was announced that Avengers and Age of Ultron writer/director Joss Whedon was going to direct a Batgirl movie for rival DC comics, word has come out that he will be taking on an even bigger role trying to piece together the DC comics movie universe much like he did to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with The Avengers. This pickup for DC and its parent Warner Bros is quite the coup given the pivotal role Whedon has played in Marvel’s success. News site Benzinga is reporting that, in addition to Batgirl, Whedon will take over the post-production duties of the upcoming Justice League film, which is scheduled for release in November.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back to my first trip to Walt Disney World in the mid-80's. I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times. I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include 80's nostalgia, vintage toys, video games, LEGO, Star Wars and tech gadgets. Other sites include DMR and VideoGamesStats.com.
