Michael Keaton is becoming an increasingly important part of the DC Extended Universe. Keaton has already been confirmed to reprise his role as Batman in The Flash, but now it looks like it will also be part of the Batgirl movie.
The news comes through the new information about the cast that appears in the advance of Warner Bros. movie, 2022, in which Michael Keaton’s name appears attached to the Batgirl movie. Fans speculate that he will serve as a mentor for Barbara Gordon, who will be played by Leslie Grace. Brendan Fraser will apparently play Firefly, who will be one of the film’s main villains.
In October, screenwriter Christina Hodson described the Batgirl plot as an exploration of duality of the character. “The funny thing about Barbara and Batgirl is that in this story, she discovers Batgirl for the first time.“Hodson explained.”So you are getting to explore a duality that you have always had in your personality, but it is this completely new side of your personality, a side that is more daring and a little less normal.“.
We have also been able to see the Batgirl costume through official concept art, which looks quite pretty.
Meanwhile, Michael Keaton’s appearance isn’t the only surprise leaked by Warner Bros’ cast list. The Flash also looks like it will feature the return of two prominent DCEU villains, something we’ve already talked about in depth.
Batgirl is currently in full swing, with an HBO Max release date set for 2022.
