Jane Levy expressed interest in playing Batgirl/Oracle in Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey. We think she’d be perfect, along with 10 other capable actresses. 

There’s a legit excitement about DCEU’s Birds of Prey.

For months fans have been anticipating casting news for Cathy Yan’s film. With San Diego Comic-Con arriving soon, we’ll undoubtedly get some news soon. In the meantime, there has been at least one actress who threw her name in the pot for a role in Yan’s film.

Jane Levy expressed interest in playing the role of Barbra Gordon aka Batgirl/Oracle the former sidekick of Batman. If she is cast they’ll be no shortage of fan support. In fact, she made our list as the No. 1 best choice for Barbra Gordon. Needless to say, Levy is a perfect fit for the role, but she’s hardly the only one. Here are 10 actresses we think will make a great Batgirl.

Billie Lourd 

Billie Lourd is up and coming with acting embedded into her DNA. Many fans know her as the daughter of Carrie Fisher but Lourd has been carving out a name for herself. If Cathy Yan’s Barbara Gordon is a fierce, absolute badass leader who butts heads with her partners, Lourd is built for the role.

In fact, she displayed the leadership on the big screen in a supporting role as Kaydel Ko Connix in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Last Jedi. As Kaydel, she worked her way up from to lieutenant serving the Resistance.

Furthermore, in American Horror Story Cult, Lourd played a damaged, deranged character as Winter. Winter was liberal to the extreme who served as one of the more dangerous characters on the show very early. Simultaneously, she also played Linda Kasabian a witness to the Manson murders showing how versatile she could be. At 25, Lourd would bring a fresh face to the role that we’d hope would allow her to tap into the darker side of Barbara Gordon, as Oracle.
