Like what the MCU is doing on Disney+, the DC universe will also be available on the small screen thanks to the HBO Max service. In particular, we can find on it the feature film “Batgirl” produced by the tandem behind “Bad Boys for Life”. The superheroine presents herself in a very first official image.
Batgirl : a DC movie planned on HBO Max
Peacemaker, a series derived from The Batman, a new version of Green Lantern, an adaptation of Justice League Dark as well as other made in DC projects are scheduled to land on HBO Max. Warner quite logically uses its platform to take advantage of such a beautiful brand. We can also mention the feature film Batgirl, which will go through the small screen box.
Several versions of the superheroine have existed in comics and Barbara Gordon will be discussed here. Commissioner Gordon’s daughter also embarks on the fight against crime. Behind the camera, we find the tandem formed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah who made their mark with Bad Boys for Life. The two Belgian directors are starting to make their mark in Hollywood and we are bound to be curious about their time at DC. For the time being, nothing has been officially revealed on the content of the scenario, but a few clues give us a hint.
A major element has recently been revealed by the American press: Michael Keaton will don the Batman costume for the occasion. The actor will also be present in The Flash through the magic of the multiverse. To complete the cast, JK Simmons will reprise the role of Commissioner Gordon and Brendan Fraser will play the villainous Firefly. In the radius of rumors, it is said that Robin could finally land and that Black Canary would have a place in the film.
Discover the heroine in her costume on a first image
The main role of Batgirl will be held by Leslie Grace and it is precisely she who has just unveiled the first official image of the vigilante!
The snap comes with a caption that quotes the bow Batgirl : Year One. A clear indication of the direction taken by the film. Note that the comics feature Firefly, as well as Batman and Robin. Of course, we don’t necessarily expect a faithful adaptation, but everything now indicates that this is the main material on which the team relied.
Filming is currently underway, with stolen photos dropping regularly, and a release is expected on HBO Max in 2022. No date has been set at this time. The French release remains surrounded by uncertainty because the service is not accessible to us.
