This will mark Hodson's return to the DC Extended Universe after writing for Birds of Prey, reports variety.com. Hodson has projects like Shut In and Unforgettable to her credit. She has also been roped in to write the script for Bumblebee, the upcoming Transformers spinoff with Hailee Steinfeld and John Cena.

Whedon had exited Batgirl in February citing issues with the story. He had said in a statement, "Batgirl is such an exciting project and Warners/DC such collaborative and supportive partners that it took me months to realise I really didn't have a story."

Batgirl will portray the life of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of police commissioner James Gordon, who doubles as one of Batman's sidekicks.
