There’s a new Batgirl: Spoiledweb series featuring the character of Stephanie Brown (Who used to be Spoiler) as the new Batgirl. It’s based on Bryan Q. Miller’s pretty popular comic run. The plot synopsis:
After a close call leading to a falling out with Batman and Oracle, Batgirl goes out on her own to reexamine her place in Gotham and the world at large. Stephanie spends her days seeking advice from Gotham’s various heros, and her nights patrolling the streets in a seemingly endless battle against crime. All this while attending college, having a social life and finding time to sleep.
First off, this isn’t Shakespeare, Tarantino, or Spielberg so cool your jets when throwing out comments in the comments section. It’s a fan created series and they all can’t be gems. This one definitely has its issues, (Really, when the chief minor thug started monologuing about the oppressed masses and the privileged few, my eyes glazed over. I kept expecting him to start singing the Jefferson’s theme song.) but overall I’d still watch it because I don’t see any other Batgirl material getting done on television, animation, or the big screen.
The beginning wordplay between Batgirl and Oracle was promising and the fight choreography wasn’t bad, but the pace through out the episode seemed to stutter without a big build up to climax the episode.
Check out the episode and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
Batgirl: Spoiled is written by Sax Carr, Zack West, Ray and Beurer with Joey Rassool as Director of Photography and Editor. Original scoring by Regan Remy, Executive Produced by Sax Carr.

This NerdBastard finds the tone set in the trailer as dead on for a Batman style series. I can only hope that the series really cranks up the tone, maybe as high as eleven.

Everyone has a favorite character that for whatever reason isn’t as popular as you wish they would be. One of mine is Stephanie Brown. You might remember her from previous stints as Robin, Spoiler, and eventually Batgirl in the critically acclaimed though short running Bryan Q. Miller series. Sadly, she’s currently MIA in DC‘s New 52. To make things worse we were recently teased with the possibility Brown would return as Nightwing in the digital Smallville comic, but she was again replaced by the more iconic Barbara Gordon.
Sigh. Honestly, Stephanie Brown fans just can’t catch a break. But never fear! It’s the internet to the rescue! As is often the case, when fans can’t read, watch, or play their favorite characters through official releases they make their own comics, movies, or games. In this instance, a web series starring the fiesty blonde Batgirl, played by Marisha Ray, called Batgirl: Spoiled.
Their first full trailer has just been uploaded, check it out,
What do you think? The fighting looks good, not amazing, but definitely good and believable. I love that Batgirl’s got a smile on her face when she’s kickin’ ass. That’s key to Stephanie’s Batgirl, she always had fun in the cowl. That tease of characters expected to make appearances reads like a who’s who’s of those who didn’t make the cut for the New 52. Gordon as Oracle. Renee Montoya as The Question. Harley Quinn actually looking like Harley Quinn. Plus, add in The Riddler as your main villain and we’re looking at interesting alternative to DC’s current universe.
Its finally here! At long last, we now present the full trailer of “Batgirl: Spoiled”. I’m sure it’s left you with a lot of unanswered questions: Who will jump in at the last second to rescue Steph? How are all these characters involved? Where’s Batman? Who’s the handsome man playing the Riddler? Well all will be answered in the series for sure.
