Batgirl is finally in action in Gotham, a.k.a. Glasgow! The upcoming feature stars Leslie Grace in the titular role. The In the Heights actor recently shared a first look of her in costume on her Instagram as filming for the HBO Max project has ramped up in Glasgow. 

Glasgow Times recently shared photos of the star on set with crew members in Trongate as the streets got a holiday makeover with fake snow and Christmas markets. Grace was also spotted with her costar Ethan Kai near Glasgow Cross shooting a scene. The project has also been filming at the abandoned Botanic Gardens station, where crews were seen handling a Gotham Transit Authority subway car

The Warner Bros./DC feature will continue to film around Trongate and Saltmarket for the next few weeks, as well as in George Square in February and March. 

As we’ve previously reported, Batgirl will star Grace, Jacob Scipio, J.K. Simmons, Brendan Fraser, and Michael Keaton, as well as the newly announced Kai, Rebecca Front, and Corey Johnson. Bad Boys for Life directing duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are helming from a script by Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey). 

Batgirl is set to premiere on HBO Max later in 2022. Kristy Carlson and Kate Ringsell are the casting directors behind the upcoming project.
