‘Batgirl’: Producer Seemingly Confirms 2022 HBO Max Release For DCEU Film

What a year for DC!

Producer Michael Uslan seemingly confirmed that the DCEU film Batgirl will hit HBO Max later this year.

DC Films is looking to have perhaps the busiest year of its history. With The Batman hitting theaters in less than a week, that leaves a few more films in the ongoing DC Extended Universe (DCEU) to be released. One of those films is the long-awaited Batgirl movie, which will star Leslie Grace in the titular role and be released as an HBO Max exclusive.

Now, Michael E. Uslan, an executive producer of every modern Batman film since Tim Burton’s 1989 movie, through Christopher Nolan’s trilogy, the DCEU, and now Matt Reeves’ The Batman seemingly confirmed the 2022 HBO Max release for Batgirl. On his official Facebook, he shared Michael Keaton’s silhouette picture in the Batsuit with the following caption:

“And coming in November… December… or whenever… Michael Keaton Returns…”

Here is the official post:

Michael Keaton is set to reprise his role as Batman in both The Flash and Batgirl – the former set to hit theaters in November, and based on Michael Uslan’s post, the latter looks to be hitting HBO Max just in time for Christmas. Interestingly enough, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is also set to hit theaters in Christmas, so it’s safe to say that this coming holiday season will be massive for the DCEU both on the big and small screens.

Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are directing Batgirl, which is being planned as a movie for the WarnerMedia streaming service HBO Max. The two most recently directed the 2020 box office hit Bad Boys for Life and episodes of the upcoming Disney Plus series Ms. Marvel. Christina Hodson, the screenwriter behind Birds of Prey and The Flash, penned the script for the DCEU film.

DC’s Batgirl movie is set to follow the Barbara Gordon iteration of the Gotham City heroine. JK Simmons also stars as Commissioner Gordon, Brendan Fraser will appear as the villain Firefly, and Michael Keaton is returning as his version of Batman.

Batgirl will hit HBO Max sometime this year. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news on the future of the DCEU, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
