'Star Wars' Actress Daisy Ridley Reportedly Eyed For Batgirl Role
DC and Warner Bros. are slowly but surely setting up their Batman film universe. After Robert Pattinson's casting as the caped crusader, we will find out who's joining his Bat-fam in the future.
Several reports are now claiming that Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley is the top candidate to play the role of Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl in her own standalone film. Katherine Langford of 13 Reasons Why is also being considered for the part.
Daisy would be an outstanding choice for the role if ever, given her experience in The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and the upcoming final installment in the Star Wars saga The Rise of Skywalker. And she does look like Barbara, too.
And while an official announcement has yet to be made, fans are already sold on the idea of "Rey" possibly taking on the Batgirl mantle.
Daisy as Batgirl? I'm trying to wrap my head around this. I mean she would kick ass as the role of batgirl. It's just an interesting career choice for her. This would mean more Daisy films, so I'm down.😎 #DaisyRidley— JediRey (@knowlove22) June 24, 2019
