The HBO Max platform is going to be the exclusive home of the Batgirl movie. The project had been in the making for years, and after some setbacks, it is finally taking shape. Directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah will be in charge of the project, and now the first names of potential candidates to star in the film are sounding.
The Deadline medium publishes exclusively A Quiet Place Part II that these days, the studio hopes to do some tests on several actresses, A Quiet Place Part II which tells us that the project could begin filming in a matter of a few months. Although the trial deals are still closing, the outlet gives various names.
Isabella Merced (“Transformers: The Last Knight” and who at the time sounded like Cyclone for Black Adam and was also a candidate for Ratcatcher II in “The Suicide Squad”), Zoey Deutch (“How to get rid of your boss”) and Leslie Grace (“In a New York neighborhood” / “In the heights” and it also rang for Black Adam), are the three names that the publication directly gives as the following to be tested. They also give the name of Haley Lu Richardson (“Two meters from you”), but it seems that she would have withdrawn before the testing process. The study has not commented on the testing process.
The film will premiere as one of HBO Max’s exclusive DC Top Priorities. The script is the work of Christina Hodson.
Although no details have been officially given, it is confirmed that it will be Barbara Gordon, Commissioner Gordon’s daughter, who will become Batgirl in this film. She is one of the best known versions of this Gotham vigilante. Recent casting for the film has pointed to the possibility that we will see the villain Garfield Lynns, aka Firefly, well-known Batman villain. They were also looking for an actor around fifty points for the role of Commissioner Gordon.
