Leslie Grace is taking on the role of Barbara Gordon in HBO Max’s Batgirl movie, and the actress has shared the first look of herself in costume. Grace posted a photo to Instagram of herself in the Batgirl suit, which you can see below.

The costume looks to be very close to the “Batgirl of Burnside” costume worn by Barbara in Cameron Stewart, Brenden Fletcher, Babs Tarr, Maris Wicks and Jared K. Fletcher’s run that started with Batgirl #35 in 2014. It’s a more functional attire than the original Batgirl outfit and has become a favorite among fans of the character.

Grace stars in the film, which is being directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Bad Boys For Life) from a script by Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey, Bumblebee). J.K. Simmons is set to reprise his role as Jim Gordon, while Michael Keaton will reprise his role as Batman and Brendan Fraser will play Firefly.

The film will reportedly arrive on HBO Max later this year.
