Recently a reddit user DCEUThrowaway89 claimed to have a friend who was asked to make concept art for a short list of actresses for Joss Whedon‘s Batgirl. The studio wanted to have a actress locked down by San Diego Comic-con so they could make an announcement in Hall H.
Back when the movie was first announced The 100 actress Lindsey Morgan was the top choice to play Barbara Gordon/Batgirl. To this day no major casting have been confirmed. Surprisingly Lindsey Morgan was not on the short list of actresses to have concept art made.
The actress on the top of the list is the 13 Reasons Why actress Katherine Langford. Following the huge success from the Netflix show it’s no surprise that she is first choice.
Next on the list is Bates Motel‘s Olivia Cooke. She is a great actress as shown in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl.
Bella Thorne is also on the list probably due to her popularity on social media and prior success in shows like Scream and Shake it up.
Elle Fanning is also on that shortlist but probably the best actress on the list. She had her breakthrough role in Super 8 and has been cast in a ton of movies ever since.
Some others on the list are Jane levy from Don’t Breathe.
Margaret Qualley from The Leftovers
Haley Lu Richardson from Split and The Edge of Seventeen
And the last person on the list is Power Ranger star Naomi Scott.
San Diego Comic-con is in a few weeks so time will tell who the studio will cast. Personally i think they should choose Katherine Langford she shows the most potential while still be a relatively young actress. Who do you think should be cast to play Batgirl?
