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?
