After months of filming and years of development, the DCEU’s Batgirl movie is finally entering its final week of production, says star Leslie Grace.
Leslie Grace confirms her DCEU film Batgirl is entering its final week of filming. A movie centered on Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl, has been in the works for years now, with now-controversial creator Joss Whedon initially being attached to write and direct the film back in 2017. Since then, Batgirl has changed hands and will now be directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Bad Boys for Life). Christina Hodson, the screenwriter behind other DCEU films like Birds of Prey and The Flash, has penned the script. Plot details are still being kept under wraps, but Batgirl is expected to debut on HBO Max later this year.
Warner Bros. had a long list of contenders for the role of Barbara, but in the end, it was In the Heights breakout Grace who nabbed the role. Batgirl marks her DCEU debut, and she’ll be joined by franchise alums J.K. Simmons and Michael Keaton, who reprise their roles of Commissioner Jim Gordon and Bruce Wayne/Batman, respectively. Batgirl also stars Brendan Fraser as the villain Firefly; though this is his first official foray into the DCEU, Fraser is also one of the main stars of the DC series Doom Patrol.
Production on Batgirl got underway back in November, and now it seems to be approaching its end. On Sunday, Grace posted a series of behind the scenes pictures in honor of the final week of filming getting underway. Though fans will be hard pressed to find more shots of Grace as Barbara, they can see her current hairstyle (which is likely Barbara’s as well) and read her sweet words.

Coming to a close after four months of hard work, Batgirl is finally approaching a major milestone with the completion of principal photography. HBO Max hasn’t set an official date for Batgirl‘s release, but there have been hints that it will arrive in December. Assuming post-production goes smoothly, that date could still hold. However, as seen recently with Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, which just moved from December 2022 to March 2023, directors might end up wanting more time to make their film perfect. Therefore, Batgirl could perhaps be shifted back just a little bit.
Either way, Grace and the rest of the creative team can go into this final week knowing they’re on the road to release. Fans have been waiting for a proper Batgirl movie for years now, and it’s definitely good to know there is one that is reaching the end of filming soon. Once production officially wraps, there could be new information revealed about the film, such as plot details or additional casting announcements. Things are only going to get more exciting for Batgirl from here on out.
