Former child actress Lindsay Lohan has thrown her name in the ballot to play Batgirl in the Joss Whedon directed solo film. Lohan has been a center of controversy over the years and this is probably just a way for her to dig her way back into the limelight. The actress may be a bit too old to play Batgirl for Whedon, she joins the ranks of other actresses that want the role. You can check out her tweet below.
Lohan as Batgirl is super unlikely to happen and Whedon has previously stated that he’s looking for an unknown actress to play the title role. At the premiere for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Joss Whedon spoke a bit about his upcoming Batgirl film. When asked about ideas for casting the roll, Whedon revealed he’ll likely be going for an unknown.
What I’m looking for in a Batgirl is probably somebody new, somebody who is willing to go the distance. It is going to be hard. I want somebody who’s going to get in the trenches with me.”
Looks like Whedon really wants to dive in deep with this character and put everything he’s got into this film. And in regards to fans trying to campaign their favorite red-headed actresses, Whedon doesn’t care much about what the actress looks like.
“I know what she looks like in the comic books. We’ll deviate if the right person is different. We haven’t even begun the conversation, but it’s about the spirit she exudes, not exactly what she looks like.”
