Last week Joss Whedon revealed that he was stepping away from DC's planned Batgirl movie. While it turns out that there are no specific plans to replace him anytime soon, the project itself is still moving forward, which means that at some point, it will need a new director.

While there are countless great directors who could potentially take over the reins of Batgirl, there are some who could certainly add a little something special to DC's other popular female superhero. Here are seven directors who would probably make a fantastic Batgirl movie, if Warner Bros. were willing to give them a chance.

Michelle MacLaren

The first name on the list has to be the most obvious choice. Michelle MacLaren has directed numerous great episodes of television from shows like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad. She was also Warner Bros. first choice to direct the Wonder Woman movie, so she'd be an obvious consideration for Batgirl. From what we know, MacLaren leaving Wonder Woman was simply a case of having a different vision for the project, so if vision aligns better here, things could easily work out. MacLaren is already set to make her jump to the big screen with The Nightingale and Chris Pratt's Cowboy Ninja Viking, so by the time Batgirl is ready, she'll be ready for a new movie.

Lexi Alexander

As the director of Punisher: War Zone, Lexi Alexander was the only woman to direct a superhero action movie for a very long time, which meant her name always came up when comic book movie directors did. While Alexander has limited her work to television in recent years, she has kept her toes in the comic book world directing episodes of Arrow and Supergirl so shifting to another DC property isn't a crazy idea. It's unclear if Alexander would be interested in taking on another comic book movie, but it doesn't change the fact that she would be more than capable of doing the job.
