When it comes to Batgirl, we all have our opinions, and now we're going to look at who we think would make a great Barbra Gordon!
Batgirl is really every girls dream growing up. Just a normal girl who becomes a superhero -- how cool is that? So when it was announced that there would be a Batgirl movie directed by Joss Whedon, many of us already had our picks. For those who don't know, Barbra Gordon is the daughter of commisioner Gordon and, in most reincarnations, is a red head.
So my first thought was "oh cast me please" because really, again, who doesn't want to be Batgirl? But the Twittersphere had different plans for this role -- mainly famous red-hair actresses or fantastic women of color. For instance, there are many repeatedly tweeting at Joss Whedon that they want Emma Stone to play the role. For me personally, I'd rather they just didn't.
Not that I have anything against the Oscar-winning actress; she's an Academy Award winner for a reason. But the thing about Barbra Gordon is that she is the daughter of someone who becomes something inspirational. Like she was just a kid whose dad worked with Batman. Then she went on to be more than just that kid and turned into a superhero.
So here is who I think should be cast as Batgirl: No one we already know. Please, go with an unknown. We don't need a famous actress taking on the part. We have enough of those in the DC Extended Universe already, so why not just let someone else have their rise to fame and give us fans what we want? Plus, the point of Barbra Gordon isn't to be some flashy movie star we've seen a million times.
I say give us a nobody. What do you think?
