JK Simmons was recently on the Batgirl set shooting what appears to be a flashback scene as Commissioner Gordon.
Batgirl has been busy filming in Glasglow, where we’ve gotten some pretty good looks at the upcoming DC film slated for HBO Max. On Wednesday, we got our first glimpse at JK Simmons reporting to the Batgirl set with his return as Commissioner Gordon. Simmons only has one DCEU appearance to his name to date, appearing in both versions of Justice League.
More set photos have surfaced online, which feature a better look at JK Simmons’ return as Gordon. In the pictures, it appears Simmons was filming a flashback scene with a young Barbara Gordon and her mother. No word on if James Gordon, Jr. will also appear in the upcoming film. You can check out the latest Batgirl set photos 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. JK Simmons also stars as Commissioner Gordon, Brendan Fraser appearing as the villain Firefly, and Michael Keaton as Batman.
Batgirl will hit HBO Max sometime this year. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news on the upcoming HBO Max film, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
