‘Batgirl’: Leslie Grace Lands Role Of Barbara Gordon In New Warner Bros. & DC Film
Hopefully it leaves the door open for Jeffrey Wright to reprise the role of her da' (although that's not really WB's MO).
Will a redhead ever get a shot at being a redheaded superhero?
The whole thing of getting light skinned/mixed raced looking women to play characters that are red headed in the source material is such an agenda on both ends and nobody wants to say it out loud because of 'dIvErSiTy aNd iNcLuSiOn'
Of course, Barbara Gordon was originally a brunette. She wore a red wig as part of her disguise.
With the DC stable, I'm just going with an attitude of "whatever man..." then wait and see; will judge a production if it happens cos nothing in this series feels remotely nailed down. A multi billionaire dollar ad lib.
The comic books have done a lot of crazy things but the iconic look of Barbara Gordon is a young ginger haired woman with glasses. It's that look, that version that is even why this film is happening. This reminds me of the Witcher 3 situation where the producer keeps saying it's based on the books but the TV series would not be happening if not for the game version so it's like biting the hand that feeds.
Superman originally did not fly in the comics but if WB make a Superman film where he doesn't fly the fans will puke in their mouths.
How many gingers have we lost?
Barbara Gordon, HawkGirl (Legends of Tomorrow), Wally/Iris West (Flash and Snyder Cut), Jimmy Olsen (SuperGirl), StarFire (Titans),
Marvel been at it too with MJ and Ravonna Renslayer (Loki)
Jimmy Olsen is not ginger either in Batman v Superman.
Starfire does not count as they dyed her hair red...
Whatever about hair colour, all I might hope is the Batgirl movie ISN'T an adaptation of The Killing Joke - and especially not the animated version. Yikes.
Be quicker to name the ones they kept as red heads.
Just google a list of red head comic characters and it's mostly nope on the lot.
Will see if they keep the new Jean Grey as a redhead in the MCU. And have seen some argue that they never said Zendaya plays Mary Jane.
Jimmy might still appear in the DCCU yet as a ginger since in BVS he was an undercover agent who may have just been using the name of a professional photographer as a cover.
I normally wouldn't give a toss except that it's so obvious and targetted. Like red heads don't get enough crap thrown at them they now get sacrificed at the altar of diversity
If they don't cast Jean Grey correctly I'm not watching a single X Men film. I suffered for 20 years with Fox's garbage X Men in which the talentless hack Simon Kinberg ruined the greatest X Men story line TWICE by thinking it could be done in the space of a 2 hour film (it was coined the Dark Phoenix SAGA for a reason) and then had to audacity to direct the second one. I won't go through it again, especially when Feige should know better.
btw Zack Snyder confirmed that it was Jimmy Olsen in BvS and that he killed him because he had no plans to utilise him further.
