A new set video from Batgirl reveals our first look at Brendan Fraser’s Firefly burning down a pharmacy.
Batgirl has been filming since November, but new looks at the film have been surfacing in the last couple of weeks, with filming taking place outdoors in Glasglow. Most of the looks from the set have featured Leslie Grace, which was followed by an official reveal of her Batgirl suit. After the official photo from last week, we now have our first look at the villain of the film, Brendan Fraser’s Firefly.
Up until now, the most we had seen from Brendan Fraser in Batgirl came from a video celebrating his birthday on set. In a new set video from Batgirl Film News on Twitter, we see Fraser’s Firefly walk out of a pharmacy on fire. Unfortunately, we don’t see Fraser suited up in the Firefly armor, but given the comic accurate look of Batgirl, we can probably expect something similar for the film’s villain. You can check out the set video below.
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.
DC’s Batgirl movie is set to follow the Barbara Gordon iteration of the Gotham City heroine. Barbara was last seen in a live-action feature film in Joel Schumacher’s Batman & Robin, with Alicia Silverstone playing the iconic DC Comics character. J.K. Simmons also stars as Commissioner Gordon, Brendan Fraser appearing as the villain Firefly, and Michael Keaton as Batman.
Batgirl will hit HBO Max this year. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news on Brendan Fraser’s Firefly in Batgirl, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
