Fans often try to insert actors into specific roles, especially when it comes to superhero characters, yet sometimes actors want these specific roles. The most recent incident of this is when actor Karen Gillan said she would love to star in and direct a Batgirl film.
When asked what superhero character she would like to play next she stated, “Batgirl would be pretty cool! Yeah, she’s a redhead!”
Then when asked another follow up question about a film she would like to direct she stated, “Batgirl would be cool for that, as well,” Gillan said in an interview with Omlette. “My favorite film in that world, my favorite one is Dark Knight. I just love the way that one is directed so much. So, I would just love to work in that world, as a director. Come on, DC. Look over this way!”
Gillan is no stranger to portraying comic book characters, starring as Nebula, the daughter of Thanos, in both the “Guardians of the Galaxy” series as well as “Avengers: Endgame” and “Avengers: Infinity War“.
It would be interesting to see Gillan play Batgirl, but can you think of anyone else who can portray the female bat? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment down below or by commenting on our social media pages, Twitter and Facebook.
