Some of The Actresses Testing for Barbara Gordon in DC’s BATGIRL Movie Have Been Revealed.


Warner Bros. and directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are in the casting process of DC’s Batgirl, and the names of some actresses have surfaced who are testing for the lead role of Barbra Gordon.

The actresses mentioned so far include Leslie Grace (In the Heights), Haley Lu Richardson (Five Feet Apart), Isabela Merced (Dora and the Lost City of Gold), and Zoey Deutch (Zombieland: Double Tap).

The script for the film comes from Christina Hodson, who wrote the Transformers movie Bumblebee as well as DC’s Birds of Prey and The Flash. Kristin Burr, who recently worked on Cruella, is producing the film, which is going to be released exclusively on HBO Max. Burr said in a statement:

‘With Batgirl, we hope to take the audience on a fun ride and see a different side of Gotham. Christina’s script is crackling with spirit. Adil and Bilall have an excited and joyous energy which is infectious, making them the perfect filmmakers for this Batproject. And I’m just psyched I get to be part of the DC universe, which is super cool.”

We don’t have any story details other than it will focus on the daughter of Commissioner Gordon Barbara Gordon who is also the crime-fighting Batgirl.
