But… which Batman?
Since a movie about Batgirl was announced , the most recurring question (sadly) was whether Batman would be around. Although what should be important is that the female version of the bat will finally have a cinematic contribution, anyway fans are very interested in ‘catching’ any opportunity of the Gotham vigilante in action. Well, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah have just confirmed that they do. But such confirmation only results in even more doubts.
Why? The directors of Batgirl were not so reluctant to say that Batman will be present in their film, but when asked which version of the hooded man, then they only fell silent to give way to speculation. It all happened when they talked to the VRTNWS media about the upcoming project that will soon come to HBO Max.
“Now you’re asking too much,” Arbi said when asked which film version of Batman would be featured in his film. “I can tell it’s really Batman Batman, but who, we can’t tell,” Fallah finished. Later the interviewer asked them if perhaps the actor in question was someone who had played Batman before, such as Ben Affleck, Christian Bale or Val Kilmer, but Arbi only said, “I don’t think we are allowed to go into such a level of detail.” .
Logic would tell us that the Batman that would appear in the Batgirl movie would be Ben Affleck’s. This is because JK Simmons is supposedly booked to reprise his role as Commander James Gordon for said film. The only work where we have seen Simmons is Justice League -both versions- where of course the role of bat belongs to Affleck.
However, here we enter a conflict zone. Recall that Affleck assured that he would no longer play Bruce Wayne in any other film besides his special appearance for The Flash , so perhaps we should rule it out. This means that perhaps the most logical option is the version of Robert Pattinson that we have not yet fully known.
On the other hand, Leslie Grace, who plays the main role in Batgirl, previously ruled out the possibility of her character coming face to face with Batman: “He’s out, he’s doing a lot of other things, so I’m going to need the help of my friends. girls for the following, «do you understand me?». Thus also the actress silver the possibility of perhaps crossing paths with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. Or someone else?
There is still a long way to go to resolve the doubts. Batgirl, directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, does not yet have a release date or an apparent cast. You will receive an exclusive premiere of HBO Max.
