News: Baywatch Star Priyanka Chopra Interested In The DCEU Batgirl Role

With Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman finally getting her own solo film that opens tonight, it's undoubtedly going to spawn numerous other female led comic book movies for the DCEU. Back in March it was announced that Joss Whedon is going to write and direct an upcoming Batgirl entry. Yet, no actress has been cast in the role. We're sure that numerous talented actresses will be vying for the position to get Barbara Gordon into the cinemas. The feature will focus on the New 52 series by Gail Simone. 

Word comes tonight that Baywatch and Quantico star Priyanka Chopra is  quite interested in starring in Whedon's project or possibly donning the costume for another hero. When asked by OK Magazine, she said:

“ dream part is, now that I’m working in America, I definitely want to do a superhero part. When I think of American movies, they’ve had superheroes for eons right? So I definitely want to play a superhero and I want to have an interesting super power. I don’t know… Batgirl would be so cool!”

Whether she even gets to audition remains to be seen, but she's a talented actress that could definitely handle herself in a comic book adaptation.
