Alicia Silverstone wants to play Batgirl again

Alicia Silverstone was 21 years old when she played Batgirl in 1997’s Batman & Robin. Now, the 40 year old actress wants another shot at the role, and thinks she could do a much better job.

“I feel like I could do a much better Batgirl now than I did then. It would be fun to tackle it again,” Silverstone told USA Today. “Because I’m older and my acting is better. I know I would bring so much more to it.”

Silverstone then reflected on her Batman & Robin role, and reiterated that she’d like to play Batgirl again. “I was just a baby. It was a different thing. But I had fun back then. And I think it would be fun to do it again,” she said.

As for if she’d like to make an appearance in Joss Whedon’s Batgirl movie? “I’m open to anything, whatever people bring to me and whatever the best choice is for that time,” Silverstone said.
