Batgirl: Priyanka Chopra Wants to Play Barbara Gordon

No Comments

Wonder Woman has been so successful that everybody’s suddenly interested in making female-focused superhero movies. Most recently, Sony announced that they’re moving forward with a Silver Sable/Black Cat movie. And now we’re seeing rumors that say that this is just the beginning of a new all-female superhero shared universe that features a team of strong female characters such as Spider-Woman.

We should have more news about this in the coming days.

Priyanka Chopra (Miss World 2000 and the Baywatch reboot’s main antagonist), recently said that she has an interest in appearing in a comic book movie. It’s actually been a dream for her since she moved to the US, and despite the number of superhero movies in release each year, she already has her eye on playing a specific character.

During an interview with OK Magazine, the Quantico star said that she’d love to star as Barbara Gordon in Joss Whedon’s Batgirl:

But my dream part is, now that I’m working in America, I definitely want to do a superhero part. When I think of American movies, they’ve had superheroes for eons, right? So I definitely want to play a superhero, and I want to have an interesting super power. I don’t know…Batgirl would be so cool!

The actress went on to say that there had been chatter about particular roles, but no contact had been made:

Well there’s lots of chatter about lots of films, but no one has spoken to me about it.

To be noted, rumor has it that Whedon has already cast Lindsey Morgan as his Batgirl.

What do you think? Do you see Priyanka Chopra as Batgirl? Or do you think she’d be a better fit for another superheroine role?
