Surprise Batgirl Film May Already Have Cast Lead Role

After recent reports, given dangerously close to April Fools’ Day, have indicated that DC character Batgirl will be getting her own movie, one of the first follow-up questions has to be which version of the character; the other question, which we may now have an answer to, is who will don the outfit. Information surrounding the Joss Whedon-helmed project already seems to have manifested some clues as to who will play some version of Batgirl.

 

The current best-guess as to who will feel the boots of Barbara, Betty, Cassandra or Stephanie-likely Barbara Gordon, seems to indicate that Lindsey Morgan is a strong candidate. Morgan is known for her “The 100” role of Raven Reyes. The impetus for the consideration of Morgan comes from analysis of her Twitter account in early March; one of her tweets indicated that she was dealing with a succession of new experiences in New York that included a audition and other tweets have shown her to re-tweet anything surrounding the idea of a Batgirl film and the possibility of being cast as the vigilante daughter of Commissioner Gordon.

 

Morgan’s promotional tweets are nothing new to the industry and more than a few actors have taken a similar approach to desired roles, most of which result in nothing but noise. Sadly, the entire matter is up for conjecture due to the lack of any official comment from Warner Brothers.

 

Speaking to Morgan’s ability to tackle the role, she has her experience as Raven to show that she can play a character that mingles strength with vulnerabilities and compassion without being clueless. Her Instagram account also shows that she keeps a regular fitness regimen to stay in the sort of shape that your average human crime-fighter would need to maintain.

 

Time is one of the biggest factors in these sorts of discussions. News of a Batgirl film project is incredibly fresh and new and the vagueness of what has been officially disclosed is so open-ended that the end result could be a television program about the character, further adding to DC’s cluster of superhero shows on The CW.
