BATGIRL Star Leslie Grace Could Return As Barbara Gordon In A Future DC Comics Movie

Although it sounds like it's early days, a new report suggests that Warner Bros. Discovery execs have reached out to Leslie Grace about the possibility of returning as Batgirl in a future DC movie.

The news that Warner Bros. Discovery decided to shelve its $90 million Batgirl movie entirely while it was in the late stages of post-production came as a surprise to everyone, but it must have been crushingly disappointing for Leslie Grace, who was poised to reach new levels of stardom after garnering acclaim for her breakout performance in recent musical In The Heights.

Grace responded to the announcement with a refreshingly upbeat Instagram post, and it sounds like her positive outlook may have paid off.

According to Variety, “newly installed Warner Bros. Pictures Group chiefs Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy, in seeking to mend fences with Batgirl star Leslie Grace, are entertaining the possibility of having her continue to play Batgirl in a future DC film.”

Any postential deal is far from set in stone, however, as the reports adds that Grace could be courted for "another Warner Bros. production."

The trade doesn't mention which project we might see Barbara Gordon suit-up in, but our guess would be the solo Black Canary movie, which is still in active development (Jurnee Smollett was reportedly set to make a cameo appearance as Dinah Lance in Batgirl).

We've heard conflicting reports about Batgirl's cancellation, but all signs point to WBD chief David Zaslav scrapping the movie after screenings of a “10-week director’s cut” led to middling test scores. Apparently, it was decided that the reshoots needed to expand the HBO Max project into a big-screen proposition were "deemed to be a waste of money."

Whatever happens, the chances of us ever laying eyes on the Batgirl movie are between slim and none, so let's hope Grace is given the opportunity to reprise the role at some point.
