Pitch Perfect 3 star Hailee Steinfeld who will also be starring in the upcoming Transformers: Bumblebee spin-off is throwing her name into the hunt for a live-action DC Comics role. While on the global press tour of Pitch Perfect 3, she sat down with MTV International and revealed which superhero character she would want to play on the big screen.

Steinfeld answers the question around :40 mark.


She playfully tries to move around the issue. But thanks to the interviewer pressing the question by saying she’d make a great Barabra Gordon. Steinfeld just goes right in with a smile and all.

As you can see, Steinfeld tries to avoid giving a straight up answer, but she is interested in playing a superhero. However, the interviewer presses her and even offers her own suggestion as Batgirl. That’s when Steinfeld really opens up and expresses her interest in the role. 

Thank you! I’m not gonna lie, that’s kind of what I was thinking. But I wasn’t… I didn’t know if I… what to say. I would love that.

The possibility of playing one of Batman’s greatest allies does sound good to Hailee Steinfeld. But I would love to know who else might throw their names into the hat for an opportunity to bring Batgirl to life on the big screen.

While details about the upcoming Batgirl project have been scare, Joss Whedon has been brought on to direct the upcoming film. Warner Bros. also announced the Batgirl film is on their slate of upcoming projects.

Do you think the Batgirl solo film can mimic the success of this past summers Wonder Woman? Also, can you see this Pitch Perfect star suit up as Batgirl? Or do you have another actress in mind? Let us know in the comments below!
