Like everything else in Hollywood, the job application process for a major superhero movie role is as much a part of show business as the act of actually starring in movies. While ordinary people might need to submit a resume and interview for a position, Hollywood stars apply for roles by posting photos favorite characters on Instagram or mentioning which popular superhero they'd like to play in an interview. Enter Baywatch and Quantico star Priyanka Chopra, who has officially submitted her application for the role of Batgirl in the DCEU, telling reporters at a press junket:
My dream part is, now that I'm working in America, I definitely want to do a superhero part. When I think of American movies, they've had superheroes for aeons right? So I definitely want to play a superhero and I want to have an interesting super power. I don't know… Batgirl would be so cool!
We don't know how they do things in Bollywood, where Chopra spent the first decade and a half of her career becoming an international star, but just two years after making her American debut, she's already shown complete mastery of Hollywood's superhero movie casting game, ensuring that she'll be mentioned as a potential star every time the film is brought up by the entertainment media. By the time Warner Bros and writer/director Joss Whedon actually begin casting, we'll all already have our minds made up. Honestly, we already can't picture anyone else in the role.
