Bat girl finally coming to the DCEU. This week, we learned that thing In The Heights star Leslie Grace has been cast as Barbara Gordon and will take the lead Bat girl The series is currently airing on HBO Max. Warner Bros. have been trying to toss Babs into the franchise for years and, now that she’s here, it looks like they want to get the most out of her and surpass her with another popular heroine – Supergirl, who will be played by Sasha Calle in The Flash.
According to the giant Robot Freakin, their trusted sources have informed them that the WB is working on Batgirl vs. Supergirl the film will bring together Grace’s Gotham guardian with Calle’s Steel Girl for a super wasteful battle that is clearly reminiscent of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The project is said to be just in the earliest stages of development. Not sure if this will happen before or after Superwoman solo venture, it’s been a while.
While collaborating between these two characters was a smart move, it was surprising to hear that WB wanted to let the pair fight later. BvS proved divisive with fans. You would imagine that the DC fandom would appreciate a movie based on Barbara and Kara Zor-El’s friendship more than having them come together. Having said that, another “vs” movie – Godzilla vs. Kong – has just proven successful so it’s clear the studio believes in that framework.
GFR does not indicate whether Batgirl vs. Supergirl will end up in theaters or streaming, but it seems a safe bet to assume it’s destined for HBO Max if Bat girl independent is. A Superwoman the movie might eventually hit theaters, but when they decided to introduce her in The Flash First, it shows that the WB thinks projects based on the duo are best released via streaming.
The Flash Currently filming ahead of release in November 2022. Bat girl, from directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, is expected to begin filming soon.
