Many images continue to arrive from the set of Batgirl , and the latest portrays JK Simmons in the role of Commissioner James Gordon .


The actor sports the same look from Justice League , but the scene in question seems to be a flashback: we see Gordon kissing his wife, and with them is a girl who we imagine to be Barbara as a teenager. Some thought that the role of the Commissioner would go to someone else, but evidently Warner Bros. and DC Films want to maintain continuity with the films of Zack Snyder , or at least with the narrative universe he inaugurated.

I remind you that we recently saw the first images from the set with Brendan Fraser , and also 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 can see the shots below.
