Leslie Grace Reveals New Batgirl Costume From Canceled Film
2022 is behind us, but it surely looks like the thriller of simply what the hell went down with Warner Bros.’ scrapping of the Batgirl movie will probably be with us for some time but—particularly whereas star Leslie Grace remains to be teasing tidbits of what the allegedly near-completed movie might’ve carried out for Barbara Gordon.
In a brand new Instagram video Grace posted on New Years Day, the actress shared loads of very transient appears to be like from behind the scenes on Batgirl. However included in one of many snippets is a shot of Grace grabbing meals in costume—one which isn’t the Batgirl of Burnside-inspired costume that was all we ever glimpsed in officially-released material from the film. As an alternative it seems to be what might’ve been Barbara’s ultimate costume within the film.
It appears to be like largely like an armored fashion tackle the basic Batgirl costume from the enduring 1966 Batman TV present—mixing the fashionable superheroic padded gear look with the intense purple and yellow of Barbara’s most well-known costume. It really works as an improve to the Burnside-style look, which itself featured a extra muted model of the same coloration palette, and whereas clearly an off-the-cuff BTS shot isn’t going to totally replicate how the swimsuit would’ve regarded shot and lit for the ultimate movie, it looks like for now Warner Bros is simply not going to give us a chance to see that. So that is the very best we’ve obtained!
