Four Actresses Rumored to Be Up For Joss Whedon's BATGIRL
While Joss Whedon is busy directing reshoots for Justice League and developing Batgirl, the names of four actresses have surfaced to be rumored for the lead role of Barbara Gordon a.k.a. Batgirl. When previously talking about casting an actress to take on this big role, Whedon said:
“I don’t have my eye on anybody. I’m creating this character. I’m in a dialogue with her. We’ll see who joins that later on... I think this is somewhere where you go and find Batgirl and then you cast her.
“I’m not against movie stars. They’re great, but you need somebody who’s going to be just right. And, in a situation like this, the name carries a lot of weight.”
I know you're all wondering what actresses could be up for the role, but before I dive into it, this is all just a rumor for now. The information comes from a Reddit sub-group, DCEU Leaks. The person claims to be friends with an artist who was hired to create concept art of these actresses as Batgirl. Here are the four actresses that are mentioned:
Langford starred in the hit Netflix series 13 Reasons Why and she is said to be the top choice. It's definitely not hard to imagine her in the role. She's not a big star, but I think she could pull it off if she ends up being cast!
You all know who she is! If you don't she was in J.J. Abrams Super 8. She's one hell of a talented actress. Not sure if she would fit the role, but if she did end up playing Batgirl, I wouldn't complain.
You know Levy from films such as Evil Dead and Don't Breathe. She's got a great look, some decent acting chops, and she knows how to kick ass. She also has a pretty spunky and charming attitude, which would be great for the character. I'd love to see her nab the role!
Qualley is probably the least familiar out of all them. She played the character Jill Garvey on the HBO series The Leftovers. She could definitely bring the dramatic elements to the character. I just don't know if she's the best fit. If she ends up getting the role, there's a reason.
Who knows if any of these actresses will end up playing Batgirl. If they are the current front runners for the job which one would you like to see take on the role?
