It looks like Loki‘s Natalie Holt has already found her next project. The composer took to Twitter to announce that she’ll be working on the upcoming HBO Max film Batgirl. Last we heard of the project, they were preparing to film in Glasgow and it seems that production is picking up the pace if they already added their composer. The unique soundtrack of the Disney+ series was a standout and makes her addition an exciting prospect on what direction they might take.
Details are still kept under wraps on the upcoming film. Directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah offered a brief update that Christina Hodson‘s script has been finished before they started scouting Glasgow. The only confirmed casting is Leslie Grace, who will take on the mantle of Batgirl and her alter-ego Barbara Gordon. It’s uncertain if they’ll stick to her origins as a fan of Batman who took on the mantle on her terms, or she might even be trained by whatever version of the Dark Knight they determine to include.
Holt has built up quite the reputation in the industry with her work on Paddington, Deadwater Fell, and BBC’s Wallander. She’s even played the closing ceremony of the Olympic games, as she’s an accomplished violinist. It’s exciting to see her join another comic book adaptation to lend her unique voice to the industry. We cannot wait to listen to what she has planned for her Batgirl soundtrack.
