Leslie Grace spoke some more about her upcoming role as Barbara Gordon in HBO Max’s Batgirl film.

Batgirl is set to become a film exclusive for HBO Max that will see Leslie Grace become the latest actress to play Barbara Gordon in live-action. The 26-year old actress recently talked about the upcoming DC film with Entertainment Weekly, where she teased Batgirl’s journey:

“She’s someone who’s been underestimated by even her own dad and being the youngest kid, sometimes you’re insulated from all of the tough stuff of life and she’s so eager to prove to herself and to everybody else that there’s some things that she can handle. So, this journey is definitely going to show me a lot of that. I feel like I’m on an endless journey of proving to myself what barriers I can break, what limits I can break for myself and I’m excited to put a little bit of that eagerness and drive and, like, almost a bit of stubbornness into Barbara’s character.”

Entertainment Weekly then asked Leslie Grace if she’s tried on the Batgirl suit:

“No, I’m dying! They haven’t told me anything, I honestly cannot leak anything, even if I knew. But I have no idea! I think probably until I head off, I won’t know much, but I’m dying to know what that outfit looks like. I know that I’m going to be fitting, like, 35 different fittings for this costume. [Laughs]”

In addition to Leslie Grace’s solo film, Savannah Welch is currently playing commissioner Barbara Gordon on HBO Max’s Titans season three. Here is the show’s official synopsis:

“Titans follows young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find where they belong. In season three, circumstances draw our heroes to Gotham City, where they will reunite with old friends and face new threats.”
