Justice League director Zack Snyder recently opened up about his plans for Batgirl and Harley Quinn in his planned sequels.
With all the hype surrounding Zack Snyder’s Justice League at the moment, fans of the DC Extended Universe are desperate to learn what else the director had planned for the future of all the heroes. And following the revelation that Superman’s son would’ve become the next Batman, Snyder explained to Esquire about Ben Affleck’s line about Harley Quinn’s death saying he would’ve filmed that scene alongside the moments of Darkseid murdering Aquaman and Lois Lane.
“We were going to shoot those. And they would have had elements of what Cyborg sees. I always wanted Barbara Gordon to come in the movies. Commissioner Gordon would be on the way out, and we’d have Barbara starting to play a bigger role.”
The director also revealed that Barbara Gordon’s Batgirl would’ve filled the bat-shaped void following Batman’s sacrifice to save the world in a future Justice League film. And surprisingly, Batgirl would’ve also mentored Bruce Kent as he grows up to be the next Batman. It comes soon after the news that HBO Max and Warner Bros. are developing a Batgirl project for the streaming service alongside a slew of other DC shows and movies.
“My idea was that after Batman sacrificed himself, there would be a window where there was no Batman, and I thought Barbara could fill that until the child of Superman and Lois, who has no powers, would become Batman when he was of age. That was the idea anyway. It just seemed to make sense. Then, of course, Barbara could have been his mentor, but who knows? That’s all just… See now we’re just wishful thinking.”

Here is the official synopsis for the Snyder Cut:
“In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.”
