IN THE HEIGHTS breakout star Leslie Grace will be the next DCEU Batgirl for an HBO Max movie directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah from a script by BIRDS OF PREY writer Cristina Hodson. Get to know the new Barbara Gordon from CineMovie’s interview with Grace earlier this year. Watch below.
Warner Bros. isn't revealing too much about the HBO Max movie except that the show will focus on Barbara Gordon as Batgirl. There's no word whether the Batgirl movie will have any relation to the Robert Pattinson THE BATMAN, however, her Afro-Latino background may suggest she's related to Jeffrey Wright who's playing Gotham Commissioner Jim Gordon. THE BATMAN has wrapped production so the actress will not appear but the seed may be planted for the spin-off.
Grace is a three-time Latin Grammy-nominated singer who transitioned into acting with her first role in Jon M. Chu's IN THE HEIGHTS adaptation of Lin-Manual Miranda's hit Broadway musical. This is quite a get for the young actress.
No release date was given for the BATGIRL movie but THE BATMAN will hit theaters on March 4, 2022.
