Default Barbara Gordon Casting Thread

It is time for Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl aka Oracle to finally make her big screen debut. Who do you want for the role?

I'm holding out hope that this is who Jena Malone is playing. I love her and I love this character.

Well, if it isn't, then I'd say, Jane Levy

Anna kendrick, she's already worked with affleck in the accountant. She'd make a great Barbra.

Maybe Elle Fanning (who's in the new Ben Affleck movie btw)



Or perhaps Mary Winstead, especially if they don't want Barb to be quite so young.

I think if they're going more along the lines of batfleck being older, then the bat family should be too. Preferably barb, dick, and jason in their early 30s as compared to bruce being in his mid to late 40s. Ironically all of my pics for said bat family are all the same age.

My picks:

1. Jane Levy. Still my pick to play MJ in the MCU Spider-Man movies but if she doesn't get it....



2. Emma Stone.



3. Emma Watson.



4. Bryce Dallas Howard.



5. Kate Mara.



6. Anna Kendrick.

Honestly I think some of the actresses mentioned so far in this thread are too young to play DCEU's Barbara. I mean, the man playing her father is like, what, 60 years old?
Which is why I'd rather they cast an older actress who can play a more mature and experienced Batgirl... and one who could potentially act as a believable mentor to a certain other young girl.

First Squirrel Girl, now Batman's sidekick... she's obviously desperate to jump on the cbm train, that magic train that would bring her so much money and fame. And you know what? Let her. She's great and I think she'd make a good Batgirl.

Riley Keough Elvis' granddaughter is actually perfect casting as Barbara Gordon and despite her being a Presley she can actually act

Would she still be Batgirl or would Joker have shot her and turned her into Oracle by now?
