The Batgirl movie has been in development for quite some time, but only now has the actress who will play Barbara Gordon been confirmed: Leslie Grace.

Since 2017, the title has been discussed, and it seems that DC and Warner are finally getting the project off the paper, although no other details are known. The actress herself took to her Twitter profile to thank for the opportunity.

Sharing the news from The Hollywood Reporter, which also confirms the film’s directors, Adil El Arbi and Billal Fallah, Grace spoke about being cast, promising to give it her all in the role of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham’s police commissioner.

I am BEYOND EXCITED to embody Barbara Gordon, your Batgirl ! I cannot believeeee what I’m writing rn… THANK YOU DC for welcoming to the family! I’m ready to give her all I’ve got!” she said.


The heroine is one of the leading members of the so-called Batfamily, having great importance in Bruce Wayne‘s crime-fighting work. In the comics, she ends up being paraplegic and is referred to as the Oracle.
