The directors of Batgirl discuss whether or not The Flash being delayed will lead to reshoots.

A lot of the DC Extended Universe’s future is based on Andy Muschietti’s upcoming film, The Flash. The film, which will star Ezra Miller as the Scarlet Speedster, has been subject to yet another delay, and some are speculating as to how this will effect some of the other upcoming films in the franchise, including Batgirl.

Batgirl, which recently finished principal photography, has been said to be released later this year as the first HBO Max exclusive film for the DCEU. The film will also see the return of Michael Keaton as Batman, who will also been seen making his return in The Flash thanks to Barry Allen’s Multiverse journey creating some unintended consequences to the timeline.

Given that Michael Keaton’s Batman is set to return in Batgirl, some are wondering if reshoots to accommodate the delay of The Flash in order to preserve further spoilers regarding DC’s upcoming big screen tentpole. Well, the film’s directors responded to that prospect while promoting Ms. Marvel. Adil El Arbi, one half of the directing duo had this to say:

“We don’t know when ‘Batgirl’ is coming out. No one told us nothing about tweaks, just to carry on.”

Batgirl, The Flash, and the future of the DCEU.

It’s safe to say that with Batgirl and The Flash, the future of the DCEU relies heavily on expanding the franchise with films centered on exciting new characters that have yet to be featured in their own solo films. Although Ezra Miller has appeared in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad both cuts of Justice League, and Peacemaker, they will finally have their standalone film hit theaters on June 23, 2023.

As for Batgirl, which will star In the Heights’ Leslie Grace, the character was last seen on the big screen in live-action portrayed by Alicia Silverstone in the infamous Batman and Robin in 1997. Here’s hoping that this new film will be a live-action redemption for Barbara Gordon that the character deserves.

Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are directing Batgirl. The movie is set to follow the Barbara Gordon iteration of the Gotham City heroine, played by Leslie Grace. J.K. 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 is expected hit HBO Max sometime this year. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news on Batgirl, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
