Batgirl is one hero figure we have not yet seen on the big screen which may seem pretty darn surprising as Hero movies are killing the box office right now. But why no Batgirl? Well, I'm not gonna go into the moral background surrounding female protagonists but Batgirl could be a real hit and it would of course benefit the cosplay scene as she's a total badass!

Who could possibly play this awesome character I hear you ask?! Well, I might just have your answer.

“My skin has turned to porcelain, to ivory, to steel.”
“My skin has turned to porcelain, to ivory, to steel.”

None other but Game Of Thrones star Sophie Turner who plays the lone wolf of Sansa Stark, the star has recently been cast for the role of Jean Grey in Bryan Singer's new addition to the X Men series but that doesn't mean she can't equip the famous cowl.

She's also a great role model to all females around the world and that's evident with her recent interview with TIME magazine on her casting as Jean Grey.

"As an actress, it’s been amazing to play a superhero that people look up to so much and that people really love. To be a fan favorite is also very new to me. I’ve been enjoying that a lot. It’s nice to just kick ass. I have a lot of pent up anger that I’ve been needing to release."

Do I have you convinced? No? Well, suit your self but to me she would perfect as Barbara Gordon's Batgirl character and with the DCU growing in fame and popularity as we speak there would be no better time to do it!


What do you think? Sophie Turner as Barbara Gordon?
