It has been 23 years since Batman & Robin hits the theaters with four and final installment of Warner Bros.
Batman series, which started early in 1989’s. Batman’s character Batman (George Clooney) and Robin (Chris O’Donnell) facing off with Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman) and Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger) but with the Bat-Family gaining a new member as well with the addition of Batgirl—played by Alicia Silverstone.
Alicia Silverstone Says She Wants Another Shot Playing as Batgirl
Although the film did not fare too well it holds a unique place in people’s hearts. Including Alicia, who recently stated that she wanted another chance of playing the role of Batgirl.
She is older and now more experienced as an actor, so she thinks she could do a much better job of it than her past work. Alicia in an interview with Collider said
“I loved all my scenes with [Alfred actor] Michael Gough. Michael Gough is a dream, and I just love that man so much. So, you know, just being with him was so incredible and lovely,” Silverstone said. “I’m trying to think what else I’d be proud of. I mean, I like it when I get to do the fighting scenes with Uma Thurman. That’s fun. But I’d like to do it all over again as this woman! [Laughs] I think it would be much better now.”
Failure Of Batman And Robin
When it was released, Batman and Robin didn’t go particularly as it was expected to.
At the initial phase, the film had a strong opening at the box-office, but rapidly the graph decreased, ultimately bringing in $238.2 million for an estimated $160 million budget.
Moreover, Silverstone ended up winning the Razzie award for Worst Supporting Actress for her role of Batgirl in the film.
In fact, the sequel went to under development to reprise the Alicia character as of Batgirl, due to the low box office earnings and people not liking it as much as they thought it was never made.
Which is too bad because we all would have liked to see Silverstone and Thurman go at it a few more times.
What Is The Future Of Alicia Silverstone As a Batgirl
As for getting to see Batgirl in live action again on Big Screen, that’s something could be a big question mark? While many fans want to see Batgirl in Birds Of Prey when it hits the theater earlier this year. “You’ll not see Batgirl,” Kroll said. “I’m just going to say no. This is a studio thing. Batgirl is in development for her own film.”
