Batgirl movies add three new stars in Mystery DC roles

Batgirl, who stars Leslie Grace, JK Simmons and Brendan Fraser, has cast Rebecca Front, Corey Johnson and Ethan Kai in unspecified roles.

Three new cast members come to Gotham Bat girl. The film, currently in production in London, will follow the titular heroine who is the alter ego of Barbara Gordon (Leslie Grace), daughter of Commissioner Jim Gordon (JK Simmons returning from Justice League although he will play a slightly altered version of the character). She is a member of the Gotham City Police Department, which takes on the bat to fight crime while she is free. Directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, Bat girl gets exclusive premiere on HBO Max sometime in late 2022 or early 2023.


Bat girl also starring Brendan Fraser as the pyromaniac villain Firefly alongside Jacob Scipio in an unspecified role. The biggest news swirling around the film’s character list is the fact that Michael Keaton will appear as Batman, repeating his role from the original Tim Burton films as well as his upcoming appearance in 2022’s Lightning along with Ben Affleck in what will likely be his last outing as the hero. A photo from Bat girl Set has also revealed that Keaton’s Batman will have a Robin, though it’s unclear who is playing the character at the moment.

About THR, Bat girl has just hired three new cast members in mysterious roles. Rebecca Front, Corey Johnson and Ethan Kai have been brought to the center of the footage to fill out Bat girl universe. WB and DC have been tight-lipped about which characters they should play in particular. It is possible that one of them will play Robin, although it is unclear what age a Robin in this particular timeline would actually be.

Ethan Kai and Instruments of War

Rebecca Front is a British actress who has worked on both sides of the pond with roles in projects as far as The thick of it (for which she won a BAFTA), Grantchester and Transformers: The Last Knight, so there is no idea whether her character will be British or American. Corey Johnson, another Grantchester alum, recently appeared in the buzzy Mauritanians and will act as Mr. Fox in the Sony / Marvel anti-hero movie Morbius, which was just pushed from its January date to make room for Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s unprecedented ticket sales to continue. Ethan Kai is a young actor with a shorter resume, but he has starred in the popular series To kill Eve.

Most details of Bat girl is still shrouded in mystery. However, the production has hummed along, so the first recordings should come in good time. When there’s an official release date, the advertising machine can screw up and start throwing bread crumbs at how Barbara Gordon’s adventures fit together.
