FanCast: Joss Whedon’s Batgirl

The DCEU has a Batgirl film in development with Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s The Avengers) set to write and direct.

A few days ago, a shortlist of actresses were revealed to be vying for the lead role of Barbara Gordon/Batgirl. Some of these names included Katherine Langford, Olivia Cooke, Elle Fanning, and Jane Levy. It is very possible that one or none of these girls will get the coveted part. But what is your take on this list? Is their an actress you agree with, or one you want to see cast?

Today’s FanCast asks the question: Who do you want to see cast as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl?

My pick: Molly C. Quinn.

We’ve watched Molly C. Quinn grow as an actress after watching her for eight seasons on Castle. During that time, we’ve seen her character, Alexis Castle, grow into a confident, young woman capable of handling herself in any situation. When her father, Rick Castle, became a P.I., she assisted in his investigations while handling some cases on her own. These are the qualities that would make her a perfect Barbara Gordon. She’s played a confident, independent woman before with a knack for solving crime; given a proper story, I think Molly C. Quinn would be perfect for the role.

That’s my FanCast for Batgirl. What’s yours?

    Youth is waisted on the young

  • Schizo_Frog

    He should write a tell-all

  • Schizo_Frog

    Ode to be Josh’s age. All bright eyed and bushy tailed.

  • Duke

    Man he’s 150 years old he said. He fought in both world wars… he claims. He’s Irish Russian, his father was a gypsy and his mother a mermaid.

    Sailor Monsoon: A Life Lived coming next year

  • sailor monsoon

    You caught me.
    I thought if i used enough hip lingo y’all would never catch on

  • Schizo_Frog

    Someone here clearly doesn’t keep up with Pretty Little Liars or Famous in Love or the monthly Twilight marathons on Freeform! You must be old!

  • sailor monsoon

    I didn’t.
    I had no idea

  • Lydia Deetz
  • Duke

    You do know ABC Family became Freeform right? They changed the name.

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    Ok I took out that she was a whore even though she did a lot of bad things. Freeform is basically ABC Family for teens. She has a show called Famous in love.

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    Ok yeah your right.

  • Duke

    I think you’ve gone far enough bud lol

  • sailor monsoon

    Not really buddy.
    She didn’t cheat on you so i don’t know why you find it appropriate to refer to her as a whore

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    I could go far worse!

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    Ok fine I don’t like her actions and she is talented their happy?

  • Joe Newman

    Alison Brie or Eliza Dushku.

  • Duke

    …whoa

  • sailor monsoon

    I knew it was a personal thing and not based on actual talent.

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    Bella Thorne is what an idiot who loves Disney Channel sitcoms would say!

    Emma Roberts or Jane Levy!

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    I have every reason and right to be pissed off!
    Screw Bella Thorne she cheated on Charlie Puth because she is a complete attention loving money freeform teen whore! Zendaya should feel bad having to be on a show with her. The jokes on her Zendaya is more famous than she is!
    No Regrets!

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    She just gets better and better with every movie!

  • Joshua Martyniouk
  • Jooshua

    It would upset both Joshuas hahaha

  • Kemosabe

    McKenzie Davis.

  • sailor monsoon

    Pick bella Thorne
    It’ll piss off Joshua

  • Lydia Deetz

    I don’t know… Saoirse Ronan?

  • sailor monsoon

    Bella thorne

  • Duke

    Agreed.

  • Jooshua

    Yeah, I didn’t care for the last season, but I loved her and her mentor/mentee relationship with Hayley. I would honestly watch a spinoff with them.

  • Duke

    Molly C. Quinn really impressed me in the last season of Castle which is why she got picked.

    Not a huge fan of Karen Gillian. Didn’t wow me as Nebula in Vol. 2

  • Jooshua

    GREAT CHOICE!!!! I love Molly C. Quinn. Now as far as I’m concerned, it better be her or Jane Levy.

  • Jane Levy.
