Things are moving fast at Warner Brothers as they work to reinvent the DCEU, especially following the recent casting of Robert Pattinson as Batman, and now it appears that Daisy Ridley could be making the jump to Gotham City as well.
New rumours abound that the Star Wars actress could be the lead contender to take on the role of Batgirl in a film based on the female crime fighter. CinemaBlend reported that Ridley is on the top of the studios wishlist for the character, and like most people I’d be very intrigued to see what Ridley could do with the role.
Since her debut as Rey in the Star Wars films, Ridley has proven herself to be a very capable actress with an extremely varied portfolio of projects including Murder on the Orient Express, Peter Rabbit and the forthcoming Ophelia. If she were to take on the mantle of Batgirl it would make for an extremely interesting development, and I believe she has the dramatic range and physical capability to do the character justice.
Digital artist Mizuri also thinks that Ridley would make a fine Batgirl and offered up a rendering of just what the actress might look like if she were to don the cowl.
