The New Mutants star Anya Taylor-Joy dons Batgirl’s cape and cowl for DC Films and HBO Max’s upcoming project.
Batgirl is one of the many projects in the works over at Warner Bros., with a script penned by Birds of Prey and The Flash scribe Christina Hodson. Recently, we learned the Batgirl project is intended for HBO Max, but it’s unclear if it will take place in the DC Extended Universe with Ben Affleck’s Batman, in Matt Reeves’ The Batman universe, or exist as its own thing. As the project gets closer to fruition, more details will come, but fans are still throwing out names for who they think would be a good fit to play Barbara Gordon, and a popular one is Anya Taylor-Joy.
Anya Taylor-Joy is no stranger to comic book movies, having played Magik in The New Mutants, which will actually hit HBO Max this weekend. As the Batgirl project starts to take shape, a new piece of fan art from Instagram sees Taylor-Joy become DC Films’ Batgirl. You can check out the awesome fan art below.

Here is the official synopsis for Anya Taylor-Joy’s The New Mutants:
In this terrifying, action-fueled film based on the MARVEL comic series, five young people who demonstrate special powers are brought to a secret institution to undergo treatments they are told will cure them of the dangers of their powers. Included are Danielle Moonstar aka Mirage (Blu Hunt), who creates illusions from other people’s fears; Rahne Sinclair (Maisie Williams), who transforms into the werewolf Wolfsbane; Sam Guthrie (Charlie Heaton), who, as Cannonball, can fly at jet speeds protected by a force field; Roberto da Costa aka Sunspot (Henry Zaga), who absorbs and channels solar power; and Illyana Rasputin aka Magik (Anya Taylor-Joy). The younger sister of Colossus, Magik becomes encased in armor at will and wields a soulsword that amplifies her multiple superhuman and psychic abilities.
Invited by Dr. Cecilia Reyes (Alice Braga) to share their stories about when their powers first manifested, the five “patients” come to understand that they are in a class of people called mutants, who have historically been marginalized and feared. As they relive their origin stories, their memories seem to turn into terrifying realities. Soon, they question what is real and what isn’t, and it becomes clear that the institution isn’t what it seems. Now the question is — why are they being held captive? And who is trying to destroy them? The tension and horror mount in this white-knuckle thrill ride directed by Josh Boone and co-written by Boone and Knate Lee.
Directed by Josh Boone from a script he co-wrote with Knate Lee, The New Mutants stars Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Blu Hunt, and Henry Zaga.
