Baywatch star Priyanka Chopra wants to essay a superhero role and has said that Batgirl would be “cool” to play.
A new Batgirl film was announced earlier this year and it will be written and directed by Joss Whedon. The hunt for the lead actress is still on and Priyanka, 34, seems to have thrown her name into the ring.
“My 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,” she said in a chat with OK! Magazine.
Batgirl has appeared twice on screen in recent years; Alicia Silverstone played a version of her (called Barbara Wilson) in “Batman & Robin”, and Rosario Dawson voiced Barbara Gordon/Batgirl in the recent “Lego Batman Movie.”
