Batgirl stunt performer Jules Wallace revealed that an obscure Batman villain was set to appear in the film and showed off his look now that the film has been canceled.

Last week, the shocking news came out that Warner Bros. Discovery would not release Batgirl in theaters or on HBO Max. The decision is said to be due to a new shift in strategy, with the company also seeking tax write-offs for not releasing the film. Batgirl was also reportedly in bad shape, with the studio not seeing the movie as salvageable.

Killer Moth Revealed!

Now that the Batgirl film will never see the light of day, details about what we might’ve seen are starting to emerge. Batgirl was set to star Brendan Fraser as Firefly, and it looks like the DC film was also going to feature the obscure Batman villain, Killer Moth. The reveal comes from stunt performer Jules Wallace, who shared his Killer Moth look on Instagram. You can read his caption and see photos of him as Killer Moth below.

“Doesn’t seem much point keeping quiet about this now and sucks we won’t get to see it on screen, but here you go. Doubled ‘Killer Moth’ in Batgirl, along with my pal Stevie who doubled Commissioner Gordon. Quite a long chaotic shoot but we had a great time and glad to see many of the US and European cast and crew left with a love of Glasgow and Scotland.”

Here is the synopsis for DC’s next film, Black Adam:

“Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods—and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.”

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a script written by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, the DCEU film stars Dwayne Johnson, Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, Bodhi Sabongui, and Pierce Brosnan.

Black Adam opens in theaters on October 21, 2022. Be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news regarding the future of the DC Universe, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more original video content.
