Joss Whedon Talks BATGIRL Casting; Suggests He May Be Thinking Of An Unknown Actress For The Role

The GOTG Vol. 2 world premiere is now in full swing, and reporters caught up with Joss Whedon on the red carpet to ask him about his plans for Batgirl. Find out what he had to say after the jump...

Some may still find it a little hard to believe that Avengers director Joss Whedon is going to be the one to bring Batgirl to the big screen, but we've now heard it straight from the horse's mouth.

Variety caught up with the Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator on the red carpet of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 world premiere and quizzed him about his plans for the film - specifically who he may or may not in mind for the title role.

Whedon said he was focusing on finding the character right now and hadn't even thought about casting, but when pressed, he does seem to suggest that he'd rather Barbara Gordon wasn't played by a big-name star... unless it was Vin Diesel, of course.
