HBO Max’s Batgirl Movie Has Wrapped Production

It may be April 1st, but this update for HBO Max’s Batgirl movie is neither a joke nor a prank. Directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah have announced that the film has wrapped production.

Arbi first shared the news on his Instagram account with a behind-the-scenes picture of Leslie Grace in costume standing between Arbi and Fallah.

Grace headlines the film as Barbara Gordon, a young heroine who takes her inspiration from Batman. J. K. Simmons is reprising his role as Commissioner James Gordon from Justice League. Brendan Fraser is portraying the main villain, Firefly, with Ivory Aquino as Alysia Yeoh. Jacob Scipio, Rebecca Front, Corey Johnson, and Ethan Kai in supporting roles.

Additionally, Michael Keaton is reprising his role as Batman for the film. Presumably Batgirl takes place after The Flash in order to explain the presence of Keaton’s Batman. However, it’s unclear if HBO Max plans to delay Batgirl until after The Flash hits theaters in June 2023.

For now, the Batgirl movie is still expected to premiere on HBO Max this year.
