Brendan Fraser has been cast in DC’s upcoming “Batgirl” movie and will play the villainous Firefly opposite star Leslie Grace.

Interesting. Unexpected, but I don’t mind that casting.

I feel like they missed a trick by not casting Nathan Fillion for that role.

I'm always happy to see Brendan Fraser though.

I loved the woman Firefly on GOTHAM. But I'm happy to see Fraser get more DC roles along with Doom Patrol

Agreed! Based on the production’s clapperboard, this movie is going to suck!

And Batgirl? Welcome to woke America! There’s only one bat and that’s BatMAN!

Microfiche? Really? What year is this set in?

Batman: And you are...?

Batgirl: Batgirl.

Batman: That's not awfully PC. What about Batperson, or Batwoman?
Yeah, from Batman & Robin. Couldn't find the clip, however.

Leslie Grace from the movie In the Heights. She was cast 4 months ago. It was mentioned in this thread 2 pages ago.

It like they’re relying solely on Keaton to revive the DCU. Not sure if that’s the best move.

Same. I say this as a Batman and DC fan but they have a Batman problem. Imagine if MCU was recasting Tony or Steve all the time.

Should have used Birdman instead.

I'm down for it. Maybe have him be the older retired guy like in the Batman Beyond animated series.

It also says it's the first live action Batgirl but Alicia Silverstone already did that.

To me the more Keaton the better. I think it’s awesome that they’re using him in more projects.

Too bad it took them 30 years to figure that out.

Seems the rumors of Keaton being the new Batman within the DCEU were true.
