By far, the most common name found on fancast lists for Batgirl is Emma Stone. The 28-year-old actress has the humour, the heart, the acting chops and not to mention the look to be a terrific Babs.
However, let’s be honest, how likely is it that the Oscar-winning star would jump on board the DC train? To be fair, the franchise has attracted an incredible pedigree of talent so far. Mostly though, they’re already established stars – Ben Affleck, Russell Crowe, Jared Leto – or upcoming talents looking for a role to really launch their careers – Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Margot Robbie.
With numerous high profile parts already under her belt – most notably, Mia in La La Land – Stone doesn’t really need to tie herself down to a multiple-movie contract. Especially after her previous experience with a superhero movie franchise – The Amazing Spider-Man, in which she played Peter’s girlfriend Gwen Stacy – went down the pan. So, while Stone’s casting would no doubt please a lot fans, we just can’t see it happening.
But, hey, you never know!
