Hot on the heels of yesterday's hilarious Conan video where he played a Batman desperate to join the Marvel Universe, everyone's favorite giant ginger is back with another funny comic related video. This time, he's rounded up some famous females who are attempting to land the role of Batgirl, despite the fact that next to none of these ladies would likely ever be considered for the role.
Part of me feels really bad for laughing the hardest at Nick Offerman's line that this was "the same bullshit I got on Ocean's 8, I bet Sandy Bullock gets this one too." If I had to pick a favorite out of the ladies auditioned, it'd be Kristen Schaal. She's one of the funniest women on the planet, and what I wouldn't give for her to land a major role in a comic book movie. She'd make a great Squirrel Girl should they ever decide to actually bring her into the MCU.
Maria Bamford's no slouch either and I'd love to see her get a shot at playing a comic book character some day. She's basically a walking cartoon anyway, so it wouldn't be much of a leap. What do you guys think? Which one of these ladies—or gents—would you like to see take on the role of Batgirl should they ever decide to actually give her her own film?
