New images from the Glasgow set of Batgirl tease Jacob Scipio and Leslie Grace’s new looks.
HBO Max’s Batgirl is currently filming in Glasgow, which was previously as Gotham City for Andy Muschietti’s The Flash and Matt Reeves’ The Batman. With cameras rolling on the DC project, fans have gotten early looks at some of the film’s key characters, including Brendan Fraser’s villain Firefly. Now, we have solid look at Jacob Scipio’s mysterious character.
Best known for starring in Bad Boys For Life, Jacob Scipio is set to play an integral role in the upcoming HBO Max film. A new set video shows the English actor stepping out of a pricy SUV and suited up. After speaking to a construction worker, the star walks into a building that has “Bressi” painted on the side. Could Jacob Scipio be playing Gotham City enforcer Tony Bressi? Only time will tell.
While Jacob Scipio’s role in Batgirl is still doused in mystery, fans already know who Leslie Grace is set to play! A new set photo shows the star in her civilian clothes as Barbara Gordon. Grace is notably seen with the character’s signature red hair.
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.
