Filming for Batgirl continues in Glasgow, and from the set comes a video showing JK Simmons as a young Jim Gordon , as well as Michael Keaton ‘s Batman (albeit briefly).
It is clear that this is a flashback: Gordon hugs a girl who runs towards him, perhaps Barbara as a child, and the impression is that she was saved by the Bat Man. Maybe that’s why she’ll take Batman as a role model when she becomes a superhero.
As we know, Keaton will wear the cape thirty years after Batman – The Return , but his official debut in the DC Extended Universe will take place in The Flash . The latter will instead be the last for Ben Affleck ‘s Batman .
I remind you that last month we saw the first images from the set with Brendan Fraser and those with JK Simmons , as well as the official image of the costume. The latter was criticized by some fans, prompting the prompt response of co-director Adil El Arbi . The release is expected in 2022 on HBO Max , but a date is not yet available.
You will find the video below.
The cast includes Leslie Grace ( Barbara Gordon / Batgirl ), JK Simmons ( Commissioner James Gordon ), Jacob Scipio ( Killer Moth ), Brendan Fraser ( Firefly ), Michael Keaton ( Bruce Wayne ), Ethan Kai , Rebecca Front , Corey Johnson and Jacob Scipio .
The film will be directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah , who got noticed in 2020 for Bad Boys For Life . The two directors have also directed an unknown number of episodes of Ms. Marvel .
The Batgirl script was written by Christina Hodson , the same as Bumblebee, Birds of Prey and the upcoming The Flash . The production is curated by Kristin Burr .
