Coming off her Oscar win Emma Stone is officially the hottest actress in Hollywood. The last Best Actress winner went on to a high-profile comic book role, so what if the same future is in store for the former Gwen Stacy? One artist has put Stone in the iconic costume of Batgirl, and we have to agree, she looks perfect for the part.
The images come from Australian artist Kode via his Boss Logic Twitter account. He gives us a pair of nearly identical pictures. One gives us Batgirl without her cowl on, so as to make it clear that he is, in fact, basing his design on Emma Stone, and not just a generic redhead. The second gives us the full Batgirl and she looks great. She would certainly look right standing next to Ben Affleck's Batman. We also like the additional touches surrounding Batgirl, including references to The Joker and The Riddler, as well as the Wayne Enterprises building in the background.
Specifically, the Emma Stone as Batgirl design appears to be built off the version seen as part of the most recent Batman video game Batman: Arkham Knight. Barbara Gordon has always played the role of Oracle in those games, but an additional mission of downloadable content allowed gamers to play as Batgirl.
While there have been those interested in making a Batgirl movie, she's one character that has yet to show up as part of the DC Extended Universe. Still, the recent news that a Nightwing movie is being put together, prior to any indication that there is even a living Robin, would certainly seem to indicate that if anybody wants to put a Batgirl movie together, they could certainly do that. No setup required. There would certainly be worse choices than Emma Stone.
Marvel made short work snapping up the last Best Actress winner, Brie Larson, to be their Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There's a good chance that Emma Stone's dance card will be filling up very quickly following her win. If Warner Bros. is even a little bit interested in bringing her on board, it wouldn't be a bad move to get her signed now, before she doesn't have the time for anything as involved as a major franchise.
