Recommended Posts

Sources from Warner Bros. and DC Films have informed Deadline that executives are currently testing actresses starting this week for the highly coveted title role of Batgirl.

Talent expected to test for the role includes Isabella Merced, Zoey Deutch, and Leslie Grace.  Haley Lu Richardson’s name was mentioned, but she might have bowed out before the test process.

Batgirl is set to be shown on HBO Max from Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.  The script comes from Christina Hodson with Kristin Burr producing.

Plot details are being kept quiet but it is known that Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Commissioner Gordon, will be the character behind the cape in this version. Gordon is the most established version of the Batgirl character and was first introduced in 1961 as Betty Kane.
