Just heard the casting sounds awesome™
I’m curious as to why its a HBO Max movie and not a theatrical release. Maybe if its a hit will get a Batgirl TV series? I hope so!
I thought the HBO Max Gotham based projects were announced as tie ins to The Batman. My assumption is that these two will be related.
I think it is great that they cast a Latina in the role! If I recall, Miss Grace is Dominican.
I was hoping for Isabela Merced myself, but yeah, Leslie Grace was great on In The Heights so it’s not a loss. Hispanic Supergirl, Hispanic Batgirl, as a Hispanic myself me likey, LOL. Dumb, I know.
I’m not a fan of this casting
Casting Leslie Grace makes sense from a cost standpoint as Batgirl being an HBO Max film would lead it to have a smaller budget compread to a blockbuster.
Their looking to cast a different Jim Gordon.
