BATGIRL Star Leslie Grace Shares Video Detailing Her Challenging Training Regime To Play Barbara Gordon

In The Heights star Leslie Grace has shared a behind-the-scenes look at her intense training regime to play Barbara Gordon in Batgirl, and it seems the actress is clearly putting the necessary work in...

The Avengers director Joss Whedon was once set to take the helm of Batgirl for Warner Bros., but the filmmaker stepped away in the wake of Justice League's reshoots. Now, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Ms. Marvel) are taking charge of the action from a screenplay by Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey). 

In The Heights star Leslie Grace will play the title character, while Warner Bros. has done an undeniably excellent job of putting together an impressive supporting cast. J.K. Simmons is expected to return as Commissioner Gordon and Brendan Fraser has been tapped to suit up as the villainous Firefly. Jacob Scipio, meanwhile, is expected to bring Killer Moth to life on screen. 

Right now, Grace is hard at work training to take on the role of Barbara Gordon, and the actress recently shared a workout video highlighting the pitfalls of undergoing a superhero transformation. 

Set to "Pennies From Heaven" by Lois Prima, the Batgirl star shows off her resistance training, weight lifting, and boxing, and wonders "When do the superpowers kick in?" It's great seeing Grace put this level of effort into playing the beloved member of the Bat-Family, and while the movie is heading straight to streaming, we're hoping this is the start of bigger things for the character.

During DC FanDome, it was confirmed that the DC Extended Universe's Batgirl will have red hair, while concept art (which you can check out here) gave us a glimpse of the vigilante's costume.

Batgirl is set to be released on HBO Max sometime in 2022.
