A new design sees Star Wars actor Daisy Ridley suit up in the Batgirl costume for the upcoming HBO Max project.
Following the recent confirmation that Warner Bros. is working with HBO Max on a Batgirl project, a new image sees Daisy Ridley leave Star Wars behind to don Barbara Gordon’s costume in live-action. The star found herself in the spotlight after being cast as Rey in the sequel trilogy, so she’s most likely been approached for superhero roles already – and it’s easy to imagine the actor playing the enthusiastic Batgirl.
The new fan art from ‘britedit’ on Instagram sees Daisy Ridley wear the cape and cowl for the HBO Max project. This suit leans into the purple and gold look for Barbara Gordon instead of the all-black suits we’ve seen in Batman: The Animated Series and the Arkham games. Aside from the Star Wars actor, a number of other names have been thrown into the mix for Batgirl like Kaitlyn Dever, Zoey Deutch and Karen Gillan. Take a look at Daisy Ridley donning the Batsuit for HBO Max below.
