The rumour mill is in overdrive on a slow post ComicCon news day, and word has it that Miley Cyrus has auditioned for Batgirl on the off chance that they hope to include the character in an upcoming Batfilm.
World of Superheroes shares:
Cyrus auditioned for the role of Batgirl and might be considered by Warner Bros. for a future role in the series.
According to Hollyscoop.com, the “Hannah Montana” star reportedly “stunned” Warner execs during her audition, even dressing for the part in a “full batsuit.”
Now this just sounds like publicity stunt news (which I realize the irony that I am perpetuating) but I just can’t see them opting for a “Batgirl” character in the Nolan era Batman franchise. Keeping things simple and gritty real is working much better for the franchise.
Should Nolan continue on, I imagine he would maintain his “No Robin” rule, which as a subclause would likely imply a “no Batgirl” rule. Also, if they did choose to make a Batgirl movie unrelated to the current franchise, they should be reminded how well an unrelated off canon Catwoman did for them.
I know there are those who would mock Cyrus for the attempt, but I won’t rule her out as a Disney kid until she proves she can’t make it without the Mouse.
However I am sure that this will just turn out to be either blind rumour, or if it did happen, its validity ended with the amusement of those she “auditioned” for. Impressed by her enthusiasm.
