Alicia Silverstone as Batgirl
We’ll get to Batwoman in a minute, but we’d like to share with you one of DC Comic’s lesser-known superheroines, Batgirl. Well, lesser-known isn’t actually a befitting label for the character, seeing as how she has her own film coming out later this year.
Several decades ago, we got to see Batgirl in action when Alicia Silverstone—the actress who played Cher Horowitz in 1995’s Clueless—put on the black cape. Batman & Robin was a complete dud, and many people questioned whether Alicia would even have a future in Hollywood. However, two years later, she put the naysayers to rest when she totally killed the role of Eve Rustikov in 1999’s Blast from the Past.
