Batgirl is no exception when it comes to the Bat Family’s constant need to adjust their looks, something pioneered by their patriarch who seems to have an outfit for any occasion. Barbra Gordon has had plenty of looks over the years, but one of her most iconic has to be the Burnside suit, one that she wore throughout the Rebirth line when she moved to the Burnside district of Gotham.
We don’t know much about the upcoming Batgirl film, other than that it could be an adaption of Batgirl: Year One, but it seems we might know what she’ll look like. In a recent interview with VRTNWS, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah confirmed that Batgirl’s costume took some inspiration from the Burnside suit, confirming the character’s helmet-like cowl. The suit was the subject of much debate after it debuted in 2015.
Hopefully, we’ll get our first look at Leslie Grace in the Burnside suitl at DC FanDome. This would be the best-case scenario, especially since they’ll most likely be filming outdoors and could avoid the usual leaked set photos that show off a stunt suit and set the fandoms ablaze. Batgirl currently has no set release date but will exclusively release on HBO Max as production kicks off next month in Glasgow.
