Introduction to Batgirl UNTITLED

In 2017, Warner Bros. pulled Joss Whedon to write and direct a Batgirl movie. A year later, Whedon departed the project saying he “didn’t have a story”. In May 2021, Bad Boys for Life filmmakers Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah were hired to direct the film, while Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey, Bumblebee, The Flash) was tasked with writing the script. Loki composer Natalie Holt has confirmed that she will be scoring the film.

Actor Leslie Grace, who is best known for her performance in the 2021 film In the Heights, will star as Barbara Gordon. J.K. Simmons will be reprising his role of Commissioner James Gordon, making Batgirl his third appearance as the character following his appearances in Justice League and Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Brandon Fraser has signed on to play the villain.

The movie will release directly to HBO Max and comes as HBO Max continues to bolster its original programming in an effort to lure subscribers.

A recent casting call advert strongly hints that Batgirl’s friend and transgender character Alysia Yeoh will make it into the upcoming Batgirl film. The advertisement, published by Castit Talent, solicits an actor for the role of a “mid/late 20’2 Asian American transgender woman” for an untitled Warner Bros. film. Further details review the movie is directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, directors of the upcoming Batgirl film.

The casting call goes on to ask for an an actor who is a “10-12-year-old Asian American transgender girl or a 10-12 year old Asian American nonbinary and/or gender diverse person” for the role of “young Alanna.”

We can’t say for sure if “Alanna” is a codeword or true character name but the description of the role clearly matches Alysia Yeoh, who first appeared in Batgirl Vol 4 #1. Alysia is Barbara Gordon’s best friend and a transgender woman. At the time of her appearance, she was noted for being the first transgender character written in a contemporary context in a mainstream comic book.

Below is the flyer for the casting call.
