Leslie Grace shares first image in her role as Batgirl

With shooting underway in Glasgow this week on the upcoming Batgirl movie, star Leslie Grace has revelaed a first look at her new costume for the role - see below:

 

 

Batgirl is due to debut in cinemas at some point this year (although a release date is still to be confirmed at the time of writing) and will see Grace star as Batgirl (aka Barbara Gordon) alongside Michael Keaton, who returns to the role of Batman / Bruce Wayne for the first time since starring in Tim Burton's 1989 film. 

Breandan Fraser is also set to star in the new film as the film's main villain Garfield Lynns - better known by his criminal alias Firefly - with JK Simmons also set to appear as Commissioner Gordon. 

Bad Boys Foor Life directing duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are directing the new Batgirl movie, working from a script provided by Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson. Batgirl is expected to debut later this year, with a release on HBO Max planned for the US.
