With the superhero genre soaring and a plethora of movies and TV shows to choose from, everyone wants to get in on the fun. And now that Wonder Woman is in theaters, the next highly anticipated female-led DC film is probably Joss Whedon’s take on Batgirl. And while the list of actresses being considered to be in the film is probably really long, Baywatch and Quantico star Priyanka Chopra would like to add her name to that list.
Speaking with OK Magazine, Chopra said that she’d really like to be in a superhero film and would particularly like to play 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!”
Given that the former Bollywood actress stars on a show that has her kicking ass and doing stunt work on a regular basis, it’s not outside the realm of possibility and Chopra is certainly prepared physically.

5 Batgirl Stories That Should Shape Joss Whedon’s Film
Well, now that we all know Batgirl will be getting her own movie, directed by Joss Whedon no less, it’s time to start thinking about what kind of film it will be. Yeah, we had a Batgirl in the terrible Batman and Robin movie, but she wasn’t even Barbara Gordon. Gordon is so clearly the most iconic Batgirl it’s ridiculous they thought to make up some other character for the movie.
Don’t worry though, loyal Batgirl fans. It’s already been confirmed Barbara will star in the movie. While there is always room for Whedon to develop his own stories for the character, it’s more likely he will draw from a few different comics to give audiences a well-rounded introduction to the character.
