Leslie Grace Shares First Look at Batgirl in HBO Max Movie

Our first look at the new Batgirl is here courtesy of the actress herself. Leslie Grace has 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 image on Instagram alongside a caption that was pulled straight from Batgirl: Year One.

“I use their expectations against them. That will be their weakness. Not mine. Let them all underestimate me,” Grace wrote. “And when their guard is down, and their pride is rising, let me kick their butts.”

The suit itself is a mix of old and new but most noteworthy is the similarities it has with the suit from the “Batgirl of Burnside” issue by Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher, Babs Tarr, and Maris Wicks.

When Is Batgirl Coming Out?


As of now Batgirl is set to be released on HBO Max in 2022 and will be directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. Alongside Grace, it will also star Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne/Batman, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon, Brendan Fraser as Garfield Lynns/Firefly, and Jacob Scipio in an unknown role. There are rumors of other familiar characters set to appear in the film from the Batman universe but so far those are being kept a secret.

The screenplay was written by Birds of Prey‘s Christina Hodson. She recently discussed how Batgirl will explore a time when Barbara Gordon is coming 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 the 1997 Batman and Robin movie where Alicia Silverstone took on the role. Since then Batgirl has also been in several of the animated films over the years.

“What’s kind of funny about Barbara [Gordon] and Batgirl is that in this story, she’s discovering Batgirl for the first time,” Hodson has said of the film. “So she’s getting 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 less normal side of her that we just get to have fun and play with.”

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 appearance or version we will have of Batgirl. 2022 will also see Batgirl appearing in WB Games Montreal’s Gotham Knights, where she will fight to save Gotham with Nightwing, Robin, and Red Hood following the apparent death of Bruce Wayne/Batman. 2022 might just turn out to be the year of the bat with the release of Batgirl and The Batman.

What are your thoughts of the first look? Does it hold up to what we imagined? Will we see more of Batgirl after this film? Let us know your thoughts and continue to follow MovieWeb for all the latest news regarding this release and others.
