Batgirl: Brendan Fraser as Villain

Brenden Fraser is headed to Gotham City to play the villain in Batgirl.

Batgirl stars Leslie Grace as the superhero, with filmmakers Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Bad Boys for Life) directing from a script by Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson.

The DC film, which is set to debut on HBO Max, centers on Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham police commissioner Jim Gordon.

Oscar winner J.K. Simmons returns as Jim Gordon in the film, after portraying him in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

Fraser, who was a genre mainstay in the 1990s thanks to The Mummy films, already has jumped into the world of DC before as part of the cast of the TV series Doom Patrol.
