Batgirl (HBO Max) – 2022 ?

Here this is only a guess, as the film is currently still in filming and no release date has been confirmed yet. Batgirl is a movie directed by Fair El Arbi and Bilal Fallah from a scenario of Christina Hodson, and should be released exclusively on HBO Max.

He will stage Barbara Gordon alias Batgirl played by Leslie Grace who will have to face Firefly (Brendan Fraser). J.K. Simmons (commissioner James Gordon) will also be in the movie, just like (and this is a recent surprise announcement) Michael Keaton (the future Batman principal of DCEU) who will also be there.

The project was announced in 2016 and was initially supposed to show the Harley Quinn from Margot Robbie. A project that will ultimately evolve into Birds of Prey, without Batgirl. In 2017, Joss Whedon was chosen to write, direct and produce the solo film Batgirl, then the latter left the project a year later. In 2018 therefore, Christina Hodson is hired to write the screenplay and in 2020 the idea of ​​showing the film on HBO Max directly rather than in the cinema is then mentioned. Adil El Arbi and Billal Fallah were then hired to direct the film produced by Kristin Burr.
