With the new Batgirl film in production for its inevitable release on HBO Max, there are all sorts of exciting glimpses at the upcoming film being released. These glimpses now include actor Michael Keaton, who has been confirmed to appear in the film as his character Bruce Wayne aka Batman from Tim Burton’s Batman and Batman Returns. Because of this, fans can see Michael Keaton in his signature Batman suit that he’ll be wearing in Batgirl.
The images, which come via @BatgirlFilm on Twitter, don’t give a super clear look at Michael Keaton in the film. But it is obvious that the actor is wearing his proper Batman suit, and it’s also the first time that fans have gotten a good look at Michael Keaton as he’ll be appearing in the DCEU. While he’ll also be appearing in The Flash, we haven’t seen much of his appearance in said film aside from a few subtle teases.
Here are the images:
This is certainly an exciting look at the character. Fans haven’t seen Michael Keaton back as Batman since he last appeared in Batman Returns, so this will be a great time to see the character again between The Flash and Batgirl. Fans should stay tuned to ScreenGeek for more updates as we have them.
The upcoming Batgirl film will be co-directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. The film was written by Christina Hodson.
Leslie Grace will star in the film as the titular Batgirl aka Barbara Gordon. J.K. Simmons will reprise his role as Commissioner Gordon from the DCEU. Actor Brendan Fraser has been cast as the supervillain Firefly. The aforementioned Michael Keaton will also play a role in the film, reprising his role as Batman. Jacob Scipio is also in the cast as a currently unconfirmed character.
The upcoming film is scheduled to be released sometime in 2023 on HBO Max.
