BATGIRL Set Photos Show Barbara Gordon's Red Hair And Reveal Lex Luthor's DCEU Status

The latest photos from the set of Batgirl have revealed our best look yet at Leslie Grace's Barbara Gordon (red hair and all), while we also learn more about Lex Luthor's current status in the DCEU...

Batgirl is currently shooting in Glasgow, Scotland, and the latest set photos reveal even more intriguing details about the new DC Extended Universe. The Flash is expected to hit the reset button on this world, and that seemingly includes Lex Luthor's current status quo.

While he was imprisoned in Arkham Asylum after unleashing Doomsday, Luthor later escaped, and, depending on which cut of Justice League you consider "canon," either formed the Injustice League or sent Deathstroke after Batman after revealing the Caped Crusader's secret identity. In Batgirl, however, he's back behind bars...and not necessarily played by Jesse Eisenberg! 

That magazine cover is pretty ambiguous, leaving Warner Bros. the option to recast the role.

Elsewhere, we get our best look yet at Leslie Grace as Barbara Gordon. Rocking the red hair from the comic books, the In The Heights star looks like a perfect pick to take on the role of Batgirl's lead. In some shots shared by Digital Spy (you'll have to head over there to check them out as the photos are copyrighted), we also learn that Ethan Kai is seemingly playing Barbara Gordon's boyfriend.

Dick Grayson/Nightwing becomes romantically involved with Batgirl in the comic books, but there's nothing to necessarily say that is who Kai is playing in this corner of the DCEU.
