Our first look at the new Batgirl is here courtesy of the actress herself. Leslie Grace shared an image of herself as the new Batgirl from the upcoming DC movie that will tell the superhero’s origin story. Grace shared the picture on Instagram next to a caption drawn straight Batgirl: Year One.
“I use their expectations against them. It will be their weakness. Not mine. Let them all underestimate me,” Grace wrote. “And when their guard is down, and their pride rises, I let them kick their asses.”
The suit itself is a mix of old and new, but most important are the similarities it has with the suit from the “Batgirl of Burnside” edition by Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher, Babs Tarr and Maris Wicks.
When’s Batgirl coming out?
From now on Batgirl is set to be released on HBO Max in 2022 and will be directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. Along with Grace, it will also play Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne / Batman, JK Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon, Brendan Fraser as Garfield Lynns / Firefly, and Jacob Scipio in an unknown role. There are rumors of other famous characters appearing in the movie from the Batman universe, but so far it is kept secret.
The screenplay was written by Birds of preysee Christina Hodson. She recently discussed how Batgirl will explore a time when Barbara Gordon comes to terms with who she is and what she is destined to become. This is the first time that Batgirl has appeared in a film since 1997 Batman and Robin movie where Alicia Silverstone played the role. Since then Batgirl has also been in several of the animated films over the years.
“What’s quite funny about Barbara? [Gordon] and Batgirl is that she discovers in this story Batgirl for the first time, “Hodson said of the film.” So she’s going to explore a duality she’s always had in her personality, but it’s this whole new side of her personality, a side that’s more daring and slightly is less normal side of her. that we can just have fun and play with it. “
Grace also starred as Nina Rosario in the film In the Heights and this will be her first appearance in the DCEU. However, this is not the only look or version we will have Batgirl. 2022 will also see Batgirl appears in Montreal’s World Cup Games Gotham Knights, where she will fight to save Gotham with Nightwing, Robin and Red Hood after the apparent death of Bruce Wayne / Batman. 2022 may just be the year of the bat with the release of Batgirl and The Batman.
