Batgirl movie Release Date: Is it Officially Confirmed?

This year, fans of DC Comics will be taking two trips to Gotham City, as Warner Bros rolls out bold reboot The Batman and follows it up with the first-ever live-action Batgirl movie.

The star of “In The Heights breakout” Leslie Grace will be playing the role of vigilante Barbara Gordon, a legendary character from the comic books who has never received her due in multiple previous screen adaptations.

However, that appears ready to change now, since the studio has gotten a strong creative team along with the screenwriter of Birds of Prey “Christina Hodson” and director of Bad Boys For Life “Adil El Arbi” and “Bilall Fallah”.

The film will emerge in the mainline DCEU continuity in contrast with the separate universe hailed from Robert Pattinson’s Batman which has enabled JK Simmons to reprise his Justice League character of Commissioner Gordon.

Batgirl movie Release Date: Is it Officially Confirmed?

No announcement has been made so far with regard to the release date for Batgirl, however, Warner Bros has stated that it plans to roll out the movie sometime in 2022, but for a surprise, we may not be able to see a theatrical release.

Rather, the film will release exclusively on HBO Max in the United States, though it’s still not clear where it will show up in those countries where the service is not available, for example, the United Kingdom.

The filming for Batgirl had officially begun in late November 2021, with principal photography still ongoing in the midst of January, going down in Glasgow, Scotland.

Batgirl Cast

A number of main casts have been revealed and here are the names:

  • Leslie Grace will be the lead cast of DC’s Batgirl movie, portraying the character of Barbara Gordon / Batgirl.
  • J. K. Simmons (who was seen in Spider-Man: No Way Home) will portray the role of Grace’s father named Commissioner James Gordon.
  • Michael Keaton will reprise his character of Bruce Wayne aka Batman, which he inhabited in Tim Burton’s 1989 film and has recently come back as DC toys with its own multiverse tales.
  • Brendan Fraser will be the main antagonist in the movie, portray the role of demented pyromaniac Firefly, which is completely not related to his other DC role of Robotman on Doom Patrol.

In January 2022, it was confirmed that “The Thick Of It Rebecca Front” would be joining the cast of Batgirl in an unidentified character, by the side of Corey Johnson and Emmerdale alum Ethan Kai.

In the meantime, Jacob Scipio will also join the cast though the role is not disclosed yet and the movie will be directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.
