It looks as though Barbara Gordon a.k.a Batgirl, Oracle, Babs will be getting her own stand alone movie in Batgirl (tt6718412). Which actress do you think can pull off the great crime-fighting/tech genius?

are there no really tough chicks left...most of these ladies look like they would blow over from a feather...(and don't even get me started on amy adams playing lois lane...what horrible casting...)

when i first heard about the 'batgirl' movie, my first thought went to angelina jolie...and despite her maybe being a bit too 'mature' for the role, i can't think of anybody else that has the stuff to bring to the table that a 'batgirl' would need...

maybe somebody would have a decent suggestion...would love to hear it...

Well Barbara has never looked like a physically imposing chick. She is more mentally tough than physically tough. She out thinks the opponent rather than beats the crap out of them.

Haley Bennett would be win-win talented rising star who could use a big breakthrough role.

What happen to Jena Malone?

Jena Malone ended up being Jenet Klyburn (a scientist) in a cameo role for the director's cut. I don't see why they would waste her in such a small role. Jenet is affiliated with STAR labs so she might have a larger role in either the Flash or Cyborg movie.

Aubrey Plaza, though she'd be a better Catwoman than Batgirl.

Plaza has a different kind of weird charm. I would have more of a choice for Raven than Catwoman or Batgirl.

The poll is pretty far along vote wise, but I might add your suggestions when more details on the Batgirl movie are revealed.

I haven't seen Eliza in anything but going by the pictures she has the right demeanor...i guess that is what you would call it. Reminds me of Ali Larter.

Ingvild Delia, who played a young Princess Leia in "Star Wars: Rogue One" also comes to mind as a golden choice

I would just like to see an actress who, if she as Batgirl, is going to be in hand to hand fight scenes, looks at least a little bit as if she could take a punch and dish it out. But, if she is going to use smarts and tech to take down her opponents then cast an age appropriate actress who has the best acting chops. I don't care much who is cast as long as she looks and acts the part well.

They revealed the short list a couple months ago. I am hoping the actress they pick can do what you described as well. Jane Levy, Haley Lu Richardson, Naomi Scott would be the best choices.

Thanks for the pick but the director already gave a short list of who he is considering. Scarlet doesn't fit the age range he is hinting for Batgirl.
