So the DC Extended Universe is still trying to find the right way of putting together its big name characters, with Justice League showing that they are much better suited to making the solo movies. It has been suggested that a number of planned DC movies are going to get scrapped, although there is still high hopes for plenty of DC projects, including the planned Joss Whedon Batgirl movie.
With the Batgirl film still in the early stages of scripting, there has been no real news on which actress is likely to get cast in the role of Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl in the new movie, although there have been plenty of names being mentioned. Young and talented actress Hailee Steinfeld was recently promoting her new movie Pitch Perfect 3, when she decided to put her own name forward for the role.
Steinfeld dances around putting her name out there to start with before being told she would make a great Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl, to which the actress replied, "Thank you! I'm not gonna lie, that's kind of what I was thinking. But I wasn't... I didn't know if I... what to say. I would love that."
With that said, it is still expected that it will still be quite some time before we do finally get any concrete news on who is officially in the running to play the role of Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl in the DC Extended Universe. There have already been a huge amount of actresses names being put forward by fans and there is no denying that Hailee Steinfeld is up there with the best of them.
