Zoey Deutch 

Acting is laterally in Zoey Deutch’s genes. Her mother is Back to the Future actress, Lea Thompson and longtime Hollywood Director Howard Deutch. The 23-year-old actress has a resume that proves her versatility. In fact, one of her most notable films proves how ready she is to play Barbara Gordon.

In Beautiful Creatures, where she played the popular mean girl, Emily Asher; however, that’s not why we think she’d make a great Barbara. Deutch would play a completely opposite role In Vampire Academy. As Rose Hathaway, Deutch was a guardian in training to the queen. She was also a vampire which is kind of bat-related so it works… Doesn’t it?

As Rose, she rocked all black leather and showed off some serious as kicking skills. In the movie, Before I Fall, we saw a different side of Deutch’s acting as a girl forced to relive the day she died. While in Why Him? she proved that even the likes of Bryan Cranston and James Franco couldn’t dim her light. She would be perfect in a role where Barbara has a chip on her shoulder as the commander of the newly assembled trio. Deutch is ready for that box office blockbuster role and Birds of Prey could be it.
