ALICIA SILVERSTONE Would Love To Get Another Shot At Playing Batgirl
Batman & Robin is widely regarded by fans and critics as the film that killed the original Bat-quadrilogy which kicked off in 1989's with Michael Keaton's Batman.
The 1997 superhero flick was directed by Joel Schumacher and starred George Clooney and Chris O'Donnell in the titular roles. It performed decently at the box office during the time, earning $238 million worldwide but it brought the Caped Crusader back to its silver age days and injected it with a whole lot of camp ala Adam West.
Now, one of its lead stars Alicia Silverstone is down to doing another Batflick and redeem herself as Batgirl. In an interview with Collider, the Clueless actress recalled her fond memories of filming Batman & Robin especially with the guy who played Alfred: "I mean, I loved all my scenes with Michael Gough. Michael Gough is a dream and I just love that man so much. So, you know, just being with him was incredible and lovely," she said.

The 43-year-old actress added that she's still proud of her performance in the film and is open to the idea of reprising the role: "I’m trying to think what else I’d be proud of. I mean, I like it when I get to do the fighting scenes with Uma Thurman. That’s fun. But I’d like to do it all over again as this woman! [Laughs] I think it would be much better now."
