It’s clear the actress is determined to win the role, however unlikely that may be. The film is still in the earliest stages of development, and director Whedon has gone on record saying he’d like to cast an unknown for the part.
For her part, Lohan’s career hasn’t hit the same heights since her biggest hits in the early 2000s, with leading roles in movies like 2004’s Mean Girls. If she were to land the role of Batgirl, it would amount to quite a comeback, akin to Robert Downey, Jr.’s career upswing after Iron Man became a massive hit and kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Could Lohan pull off Batgirl? Who would you cast in the role? Let us know in the comments and stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for more updates on Joss Whedon’s Batgirl film.
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.
