The Batgirl costume….revealed! [Batgirl movie, HBO Max, 2022]

OK, this news can’t wait, so I wanna post it today!

From Batwoman now to Batgirl, to be more precise to the Batgirl movie that will come out later this year!

I posted about the casting of Leslie Grace (point 3) and now the costume got revealed!

Here it is:

Ok, my biggest fear is gone now. They are using a cowl and not an eye mask.

The cowl looks really good but doesn’t seem to have a chin strap unless it’s hidden in the shadows.

So basically she is wearing a helmet 😉

The long red wig(?) looks also really good and her face looks great under the cowl (and without a cowl as well).

Now on to the costume. Ok, I do like leather, but I would have preferred a black costume over this.

Overall I do like the costume. After Catwoman in “The Batman” and the costume disaster in the “Birds of Prey” movie, this is certainly a better one.

I hope Leslie can play the role well and that the script will be good.

And the hardcore comic fans will notice that this costume is very accurate to the one in the comics.

Not a plus point for me as I would have wished they would have chosen the costume from the Arkham video games.

Looking forward to more news and hopefully some first teaser trailer in the next months!

Batwoman and Batgirl casting news!

I’m a little late with sharing the news, so it’s about time to make a post here with all the relevant news of this week (so far)!

 

1 – Filming for season 3 of Batwoman started on July 19

I hope that the Covid restrictions are now less of a problem as they affected the filming of action and intimate scenes in season 2.

So far it’s unknown (to the public) how many episodes will be made, of course, I hope for as many episodes as possible 😉

 

2 – Victoria Cartagena has been cast for the role of Renee Montoya [Batwoman, season 3]

Victoria played the same role in the Gotham TV show and now she returns to the role in the upcoming season 3 of Batwoman.

At IMDB she is listed for 22 episodes in the Gotham TV show, but in 15 of those as “credits only”.

I do hope that her role in the Batwoman show will be a little bigger.

Also, it will be interesting to see how her relationship with Batwoman/Ryan will be. Will she find out that Ryan is Batwoman? Will she work alongside Batwoman? Will they even become a couple?

I predict a sure “yes” to the first two questions. Not so sure about the other one… 😉

So far I haven’t seen much of Victoria….but that will now change very soon.

 

3 – Leslie Grace will play Batgirl in the upcoming HBO Max Batgirl movie

This movie is in development for the last 400 years (feels like it) and now it finally has an actress for the leading role!

Leslie Grace will take the double role as Barbara Gordon and Batgirl.

On her own Twitter channel, she describes herself as “Singer/Songwriter” and “Sony Music Latin Artist”.

Her IMDB entry is very short as she has little acting experience…so far.

I have never seen her on-screen, but I will check out some of her music videos for sure in the upcoming days.

Looking forward to seeing how she will look and act in the role of Barbara Gordon and Batgirl.

I do hope that she doesn’t get one of the newer purple Batgirl costumes….but I have a bad feeling about it.

A talented artist on Instagram already put her in the Batgirl costume from the Arkham video games which would be my favorite choice:

I hope the movie will now quickly made progress and will debut in 2023, which should be doable.

But until then we will get a lot of more news on it and I’m looking forward to it.
