When it comes to anything Batman-related right now, the world seems all ears. At a time when everything is so tense and dangerous, people want a superhero as realistic and gritty as the danger their facing. However, people often forget more than just Batman is apart of his amazing mythos. He has some amazing partners and sidekicks in his war against crime–do the names Robin, Nightwing, and Batgirl ring a bell?
Speaking with Business Insider, Refn said he still hoped to make a superhero movie someday. “God, I would love to make one, it would probably be great fun,” he said. “I just don’t know when it’s going to happen. I very much enjoy my freedom creatively, but I also would love to make one of those big Hollywood films that costs a lot of money and has a lot of people running around with cell phones and all that insanity.” Asked which character he wished to take on, Refn responded, “I want to make Batgirl. Let’s get Warner working on it.”
We would definitely love to see Batgirl–preferably Barbara Gordon’s version–on The Big Screen, but it is unlikely. We are not sure if the “powers that be” would allow Refn to direct any of their films and unfortunately Batman vs. Superman was not received the way Warner Bros. expected. The studio is quickly working to restructure and reorganize its fledgling DC Cinematic Universe. What do you think? Are we ready for a Batgirl film now? Sound off
