Many have been curious to see Leslie Grace's Batgirl. While filming's currently underway, a new photo gives us our best look at the DC superhero yet. A still image was revealed through the actor's Twitter account, alongside a short quote hinting at what direction Grace's iteration could take.
The In The Heights star complemented the picture with a quote taken straight out of Batgirl's Year One run:
“I use their expectations against them. That will be their weakness. Not mine. Let them all underestimate me… And when their guard is down, and their pride is rising, let me kick their butts.” - Batgirl, Year One
Batgirl First Look Reveals Leslie Grace in Costume
Batgirl's costume is reminiscent of the character's more recent Burnside look, as Gordon dons a navy-blue suit. The golden colour of the bat logo also complements the superhero's utility belt and lush cape.
As Batgirl nears its end of filming, we're hopeful we'll catch glimpses of J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Brendan Fraser's villainous Firefly in the forthcoming months.
Details have already leaked from the Glasgow set, as various props have references to Robin and even Lex Luthor; proceeding the events of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. While the Boy Wonder is rumoured to make his introduction in Batgirl, we do know Michael Keaton will show up.
Bad Boys For Life duo, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are directing Batgirl, with the film's premiere set for sometime this year on HBO Max.
