DC Fandome is right around the corner and one film fans just can’t wait to get a closer look at it the upcoming Batgirl solo film starring Leslie Grace. The film is set to start filming next month as Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah, and Grace are all set to attend the event, hopefully giving us a look at what’s in store for the film, and maybe even a first look at Batgirls suit.
Both Arbi and Fallah recently sat down with VRTNWS to talk all things Batgirl, and while they couldn’t give much away, they let one big thing slip. The directors were eager to confirm that Batman himself will indeed be in the film, but said they were not able to disclose which Batman would be appearing in the film, only that it was the “Real Batman”.
This could be taken in a couple of different ways and it depends on what kind of fan you are. Some consider Michael Keaton to be the epitome of Batman and to have played the most iconic version of the role. But logically speaking, the real Batman within the DCEU would be Ben Affleck’s version of the character, and it wouldn’t be an odd choice considering JK Simmons is currently set to reprise his role as Commissioner Gordon in Batgirl for the first time since Justice League. There’s also the fact that director Fallah recently teased Affleck’s version of Batman via his Instagram stories.
Batgirl currently has no set release date but will release exclusively on HBO Max. Leslie Grace and JK Simmons are currently the only talent attached to the project with production set to kickoff next month in Glasgow.
