Batgirl Spoiled - WebSeries

Article author: Alwyn Ash

These days in the world of Net there are so many ways in which we get to view our favourite films and television shows. But how about the independent film-makers, screenplay writers and actors? Here we take a look at the Web Series, and discover who is out there...

"Batgirl: Spoiled is a webseries following the 3rd Batgirl on her journey to understand her place in Gotham. Stephanie Brown has never lead a charmed life. But as a part of Gotham’s famed ‘Bat Family’, she has thwarted themed evil-doers and become extremely skilled in her trade. Her world now is one of adrenaline and danger, duty and honor. She has been striving her whole life to get here, but is this really what she wants?"

How I perused the Web in search of something new, a web series that would take my breath away, blow me away, or simply make me think, "How has that been done?"

What struck me about Batgirl Spoiled was the production values of the first episode, there is nothing cheap by way of acting, camera work or script, the humour pinches in a way that satisfies, and Marisha Ray is superb in the lead role as Stephanie/Batgirl. The fight sequences are also neat, well choreographed.

Written by the team of Sax Carr, Marisha Ray, Zack West, and Damian Beurer (who directs the web series too), this is one entity that deserves praise, admiration, and keen fans who will support the project as it develops.

In Episode One we watch as Batgirl observes the arrival of Penguin, who we know to be the archnemesis of Batman. She has plans to intervene in his latest criminal scheme. However, when it becomes clear that something has gone wrong and apprehending him will be impossible, the young heroine turns her attention to a couple of criminals. But is the impulsive Stephanie ready for what dangers lie ahead?

Stephanie Brown is a DC Comics character who became the third Batgirl in 2009. Previous to that she had performed other roles. Created by Chuck Dixon and Tom Lyle, she enjoyed success in her own comic book series.
