London: “Baywatch” star Priyanka Chopra has her eye on a superhero role and says Batgirl would be “cool” to play.
A new Batgirl film was announced earlier this year and it will be written and directed by Joss Whedon. The hunt for the lead actress is still on and Priyanka, 34, seems to have thrown her name into the ring.
“My dream part is, now that I’m working in America, I definitely want to do a superhero part,” she says in a chat with OK! Magazine.
“When I think of American movies, they’ve had superheroes for eons right? So I definitely want to play a superhero and I want to have an interesting super power. I don’t know… Batgirl would be so cool!”
Batgirl has appeared twice on screen in recent years; Alicia Silverstone played a version of her (called Barbara Wilson) in “Batman & Robin”, and Rosario Dawson voiced Barbara Gordon/Batgirl in the recent “Lego Batman Movie.”
