A few months back, Twilight star Kristen Stewart was rumored to be playing Batgirl in an upcoming DC Films/Warner Bros film. Now those rumors are heating up again.
Twitter user and regular leaker @DanielRPK is doubling down on the notion with a new post that shares excerpts from a document with this exact casting description.
Naturally, this latest report will only help fuel the speculation that K-Stew herself could be landing the part. Since the actress made a splash with her oft-ridiculed performance in the Twilight movies, Stewart has spent these last few years building up her indie and arthouse credentials in acclaimed works like Personal Shopper and Certain Women. Nonetheless, as the upcoming Charlie’s Angels movie indicates, the star remains open to trying popular franchise fare.
But don’t expect to see Batgirl lighting up the big screen anytime soon. Despite a Birds of Prey film on the way, she has been left out. Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn will act as the third member in that upcoming film. Also, DC Universe has previously announced plans for a Batgirl streaming series for late 2019.
What do you think? Is K-Stew right for the role of Batgirl? Let us know in the comments!
