In March, it was announced Joss Whedon is set to directBatgirl movie, with no actress involved. Cut to Monday, Alicia Silverstone gave an interview to USA Today that she would be a better Batgirl now, than she did previously, in 1997's Batman & Robin. Among the bat-nipple-sized issues in the movie was Silverstone's performance as Batgirl, which the actress took her lumps for.

"I feel like I could do a much better Batgirl now than I did then. It would be fun to tackle it again," Silverstone tells USA TODAY. "Because I'm older and my acting is better. I know I would bring so much more to it."

Silverstone said one of the things she would change would be her suit.

"That costume was so uncomfortable," says Silverstone. "Maybe something more comfortable would be nice. Something you can sit in. Something you can get out of to pee."

Luckily for the public, Whedon has previously expressed that its possible he'll cast an unknown actress in the role, ensuring Silverstone is nowhere near the film.
