    Love MEW! :hrt:

    Longtime fan and I would absolutely love to finally see her breakout with a role like this.

    (How it hasn't happened yet, is mind boggling)

    She'd make a wonderful Babs.

    :awesome:

    I kinda have this feeling that when Batgirl shows up in the movies she'll be paired with Batman... it just seems like a general trend recently, The Killing Joke, LEGO Batman, the animated series... comic fans may not like it but people that adapt it seem to really like it. I can see why, it introduces a interesting dynamic that goes beyond that whole "I'm your father figure blah blah blah" and that whole "You're a criminal and I'm a superhero so we can't be together!"

    I never really got the sense Barbara sees Bruce as a father figure anyway. Even Cassandra didn't perceive their relationship as such.

    After Bumblebee, I’m rooting for Hailee Steinfeld.

    Yeah because they have a thing for putting Bruce with a younger woman. DC in general is weird that they've paired Babs up with majority of the male Batfam. Bruce/Dick/Tim...stop throwing her around DC.

    Anyway...Sophie Skelton wouldnt be a bad choice

    I like the idea of two Batgirls, one in the Oracle role and one on the rooftops.

    My pick for Barbara is also Zoey Deutch.

    I don’t know if I would say he’s a “father figure” in the purest sense. But she does have a pretty odd relationship with her own dad where she has to be the stabilizing force in the family. With Batman, he plays the mentor role, but it is more like a drill sergeant/jerk boss than a loving father. The dynamic of her relationship with Batman vs her relationship with Jim G is actually pretty interesting.

    That said, if they were to go the route of pairing her with Batman or at least a similar age, I’d go with Kate Mara.

    Solid choice, could also be a younger Selina.

    Posting this here to make sure the WB people who I'm 100% certain read this very important forum see it

    Sophia Lillis for Barbara Gordon. She's simply the best choice for the role, for multiple reasons.

    She's a fantastic choice! As well as Anya Taylor Joy

    I know, right? She just checks all the boxes. Not only does she look exactly like Barbara (much more than other popular fancasts), she's also a solid actress and she's of the right age to play the protegee of Pattinson's young Batman.
