Patty Jenkins has revealed her excitement over the news that Joss Whedon may produce a Batgirl flick.

The Wonder Woman director said she is over the moon about the March 30 announcement that film guru Joss is in talks to produce a film centered on the classic DC comic's female superhero.

"If it's done, then I'm excited about it," Patty told a Canadian publication.

The director also voiced her belief that Joss will bring a 'fun approach' to the project.

She added that she believes that Joss will have a real time in the DC Universe, which will be excited to partner with him.

Joss is the writer behind fan-favorite TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and has also made two highly successful, billion-plus grossing Avengers Films for Marvel Entertainment.

The 52-year-old is now locked in talks with Warner Bros. Pictures parent company of Marvel Comics' rival DC Comics to create a movie centered on classic superhero Batgirl.

It, however, remains to be seen whether Joss will direct the film, with Patty saying that she does not know whether the deal is done or not.

With Wonder Woman, Patty is about to make history as the first female director ever to helm a studio movie with a budget of $100 million or more.

Played by Gal Gadot, the live-action Wonder Woman character was introduced in Zach Snyder's 2016 hit, Batman v. Superman.

Gal returns as Wonder Woman in November, as Zack rolls out his superhero group movie Justice Legue.

In the Justice League, Gal's Wonder Woman will stand alongside Ben Affleck as Batman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Ezra Miller as The Flash, and Henry Cavill as Superman.

However, Henry Cavill's Superman character died was presumed 'dead' in Snyder's movie, so his appearance could be termed as 'probable.'
