Well, that didn’t take long now, did it? It hasn’t even been 12 hours since the announcement of Joss Whedon’s Batgirl sent the internet into a frenzy and already, we’re hearing some intriguing rumors about which actresses are being eyed for the titular role. Of course, nothing official has come our way just yet, and likely won’t for some time, but a few outlets are starting to piece the clues together, and what they’ve stumbled upon may just give us a hint as to who Whedon wants for the part.
Not too long ago, The 100 star Lindsey Morgan Tweeted about a mysterious new project that she was looking forward to. While the actress didn’t reveal what it was, she certainly seems over the moon about it.
WELP. New project on the horizon AND IM MORE THAN ECSTATIC about it!!!! 😝😝😝😝😝😝😝😝😝😍👍💪🏽💪🏽 thank you everyone for your support & love. ❤️❤️❤️

Now, there’s nothing too suspicious about that on its own, but let’s take a look at some of her other recent Twitter activity, shall we? Earlier today, the actress re-Tweeted both Variety’s Batgirl story as well another Tweet that was suggesting she might be playing the part. Have a look at her profile here and see for yourself.
Obviously, this is all just speculation for now, but as ComicBook.com points out, there’s enough suspicious activity that we can’t just totally ignore it. While it’s unlikely that the studio would let Morgan tease the role so overtly if she actually had landed it, you never know. After all, she’d be a solid choice for the film, as she’s already got a strong following of fans thanks to her work on The 100 and is definitely a talent on the rise.
Again, though, this is nothing but speculation and will remains as such until Warner Bros. is good and ready to announce casting for Batgirl. With so much on their plate at the moment – Wonder Woman, Justice League, Aquaman – we doubt that we’ll be getting any further updates on Whedon’s project for some time, but while we wait, why not let us know who you’d like to see play the role by dropping a comment in the usual spot.
