The Batgirl film has been in development for several years, with Joss Whedon signing a deal to write and direct in 2017, and dropping out a year later. Batgirl does not have a release date, but Warners has previously indicated it will likely bow on HBO Max in 2023. We now have more details in this featurette released during DC FanDome. A quick spotlight was shown with star Leslie Grace, directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, and writer Christina Hodson.
J. K. Simmons, the Oscar-winning actor is in negotiations to reprise the role of classic Batman character Commissioner James Gordon in Batgirl, Warner Bros.’ feature for HBO Max.
Leslie Grace, the actor, known for her breakout role in In the Heights, is joining the DC Universe as Barbara Gordon, AKA Batgirl.
Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are directing Batgirl, from a script by Christina Hodson, the DC mainstay behind Birds of Prey and the upcoming The Flash. Kristin Burr is producing.
Up-and-coming actress Jayme Lawson, who recently graduated from Juilliard, has landed a notable role alongside Robert Pattinson in The Batman.
So maybe it’s only a matter of time before we see the young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) transform from a broken little child into a fully-fledged crime-fighting machine
