There have been so many different rumours about the Ben Affleck solo Batman movie over the years, with plenty of people suggesting which characters we should see appearing in the movie and which stars we should see playing them. Many people are eager to see Batgirl appearing on the big screen and here we take a look at some of the names fans have been bringing up for the role.
First up, it was initially thought that Jena Malone had been cast in the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as Barbara Gordon, which would then lead to her taking on the role of Batgirl on the big screen. However, her scenes were cut and it has since been revealed that she was actually playing a character called Jenet Klyburn, a doctor working at STAR Labs, leaving the role of Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl open.
There have been a few fans who have called for actress Deborah Ann Woll to land the role of Batgirl in the new Batman movie, but this seems highly unlikely to actually happen. Deborah plays the role of Karen Page in the hit Marvel and Netflix series Daredevil, so the chances of her now taking on a role in the DC Universe is pretty much not going to happen any time soon.
Then there is Emma Stone, who many loved in The Amazing Spider-Man movies and feel deserves to be cast in an even bigger role in a comic book movie. Emma no longer has any involvement in the Spider-Man films, so could be free to take on the role of Batgirl in the DC Extended Universe, and she definitely has what it takes to pull of the role of Barbara Gordon and make it her own.
With that said, we are sure that Warner Bros. and DC will go for someone else entirely, so feel free to share some of your thoughts with us.
