Leslie Grace has graced us with an upcoming look at her costume in the forthcoming Batgirl film for HBO Max. “I use their expectations against them. That will be their weakness. Not mine. Let them all underestimate me…” captions Grace on Instagram, “And when their guard is down, and their pride is rising, let me kick their butts.” According to Deadline, this will be one of the first “major DC properties” to premiere exclusively on HBO Max. Starring alongside Grace as the winged billionaire, Michael Keaton has been cast to reprise his as Batman for the film. The Mummy legend, who has recently made a comeback in cinema, Brendan Fraser, will also play the villain Firefly. While plot details have been kept a secret, the film will focus on red-headed Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City police commissioner Jim Gordon and doubles as Batgirl.

Original Story Follows.

At Saturday’s DC FanDome virtual event, directors Adil El Arbi and Bill Fallah (Bad Boys for Life), screenwriter Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey), and Batgirl herself, Leslie Grace, shared some insight into the upcoming film in the DC Universe. While the movie has yet to begin production, the team gave a small glimpse of what’s to come for Batgirl. They shared she will still rock her signature red hair and wear a traditional cowl instead of a mask. Grace is known for her breakout role as Nina Rosario in the film adaption of Lin Manuel Miranda’s musical In the Heights. Batgirl will be one of the first DC films to premiere exclusively on HBO Max and has not been given a release date. The concept art shared during the online panel can be seen below.
