So Batgirl will sing??? I don't think she was bad in ITH
I like her and she's pretty. The racists are complaining on reddit as per.

I'm more concerned about how rubbish and disconnected the dceu is so it will be frustrating to see this not matter.
She’s so pretty. I liked her character and her songs much more than the “main” woman in ITH. Overall I was a little disappointed in the movie but it wasn’t horrible by any means.
Yass latinas for superheroes please! Wish this was on the big screen, but maybe it'll put some pressure on Marvel to have a latina who is not painted green.
Her being an afro-latina really is a super bonus!
Already rme at the transparent whites complaining about ginger erasure while propping up a bunch of blonde and brunette white women who'd also have to dye their hair for the part. Excited for her, it's crazy how far she's come up from working with Super Junior. I hadn't even realized she's only 25 because of that.
Congrats to her. I hope she'll do well.

But I'm over WB and some of their choices.
They fucked over the Cyborg movie. We still don't have movies with John Stewart, Vixen, Bumblebee, etc. and other black superheroes that black fans actually want but we're getting movies with black Clark Kent, black Batgirl, black Black Canary, another black Catwoman. This isn't the flex they think it is. I sense a lack of trust that a black IP can sell.

We're supposed to have a Static Shock movie... on HBO Max too, of course. I'll believe it when I see it.
Aw a Bumblebee movie would be fire. Clearly I have no issue with out Black Canary but I get it. They’ll rehash Batman for the 3rd time in 10
Years but ….
she’s so gorgeous! not to be vain but i’m drunk and i’m so happy my fav character is getting such a beautiful person to play her lmaooo like what a fuckin GODDESS

it’s what babs deserves!!!

I wasn't really blown away by her in ITH, but I'm intrigued to see what she does with it.

Was painful to watch.
honestly her voice was really thin and vanessa hudgens-like in ITH too

maybe she'll...magically get better for this part lol
i haven’t seen her act in anything but considering she beat zoey, isabela and haley who imo are strong performers, maybe it was the direction of ith?
As long as she's a decent actress and has red hair, im cool with it
i’m so happy for her!
dominican queen 🥺
I hadn't seen any of the "final four" choices for this role act (though I like one or two of her songs) but somehow I guessed it would be her
Omg I for sure thought it would to a yt actress
Never seen her in motion but she has the look
