Posted on the Batgirl Film News Twitter account, the image shows Grace wearing a GCPD t-shirt. The photo was taken in Springburn, Glasgow, where the film is currently in production.
The GCPD looks set to play an important role in the film, as JK Simmons will reprise his role as Commissioner Jim Gordon, Barbara’s father, from Justice League and Zack Snyder’s Justice League. He previously teased that Gordon would have a “bigger” role in the film compared to his previous DCEU outings.
Gordon isn’t the only familiar face to appear in bat girl. Michael Keaton, who played Bruce Wayne / Batman in the 1989s Batman and 1992 Return of Batman, will return for Barbara’s debut after her first appearance in the flash. The Ezra Miller-directed film will also feature DCEU’s current Batman Ben Affleck, but Scarlet Speedster’s film is rumored to reset the DCEU timeline in some way, making Keaton’s Batman the main Caped. Crusader for the shared universe.
Other cast members include Jacob Scipio in an unknown role and Brendan Fraser, who will play the arsonist villain Garfield Lynns/Firefly. Rumors are also swirling that the Nightwing will make an appearance in the film, while other set photos indicate that Vicki Val and the Court of Owls will at least be referenced.
bat girl will serve as DC’s first live-action movie to go straight to HBO Max, not counting Zack Snyder’s Justice League and Wonder Woman 1984, which opened the same day in theaters. It’s part of WarnerMedia’s new strategy to premiere films centered on lesser-known characters directly to the streamer, while the more popular ones retain theatrical releases. Other HBO Max DC movies on the dock include black canary, which will see Jurnee Smollett cover her Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of Harley Quinn) role. blue beetle starring Xolo Maridueña was originally slated to debut on HBO Max, but will now hit theaters in 2023.
bat girl is directed by Bad boys for life directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, with a screenplay by Birds of prey and the flash writer Christina Hodson. The film has no premiere date.
