Earlier this month, it was announced that there would be a new “Batgirl” movie. With Joss Whedon confirmed to direct the film by moving from Marvel to DC for the standalone project, the next major question is who is going to play the titular character. Thanks to a leak on Reddit, someone who claims to be a friend of Joss Whedon says that there are currently five names in the pot.

Rosario Dawson

Given that Rosario Dawson voiced Barbara Gordon in blockbuster “The lego batman movie” and featured as Claire Temple in Netflix’s latest “Daredevil,” the actress doesn’t need anything to prove her worth for the character.

She voiced Wonder Woman in two big films “Justice League Dark” and “Justice League: Throne of Atlantis.” Her portfolio also includes “Unstoppable,” “Men in Black II,” “Eagle Eye,” “Percy Jackson and the Olympians,” and “Clerks II.”

Chloe Grace-Moretz

We know Chloe Grace-Moretz as Hitgirl in the “Kick-Ass” film series. She gets rave reviews after playing the leading character which makes her another choice as “Batgirl.” Chloe previously appeared in “Let Me In,” directed by Matt Reeves.

Matt is behind numerous Hollywood blockbusters, such as “The Batman,” and “Man of Steel.”

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra expressed her interest in portraying a female superhero. She revealed that her dream role would be none other than “Batgirl.” While speaking to Movie Web, the 34-year-old actress said that she wanted to play a female superhero in a Hollywood film. It will be an honor for her if Chopra is hired for the leading character in “Batgirl.” Most recently, the actress lent her voice to Miss Marvel in the “Marvel Avengers Academy” video game.

Zoe Kravitz

Lenny Kravitz’ daughter, Zoe Kravitz, is another contender for “Batgirl.” There are rumors that she has accepted a supporting role in the movie, but the officials have refused to comment anything in this regard. No doubt, the actress demonstrates that she is equipped in getting the part with her recent movies “Great Kill” and “Huge Little Lies.” She is best known for her character as Angel on “X-Men: First Class.” Besides, Zoe lent her voice to the main character of “The Lego Batman Movie.”

Aja Naomi King

Aja Naomi King is widely known for her character as Michaela Pratt on “How to Get Away with Murder.” Most recently, she played the leading role in the historical series “The Birth of a Nation” inspired by a novel of the same name by Nat Turner.

It would not be wrong to say that Aja Naomi has the personality and abilities that may make her a perfect “Batgirl.” The 32-year-old actress has a huge fan following on social media.
