Michael Keaton is dusting off his cape and cowl for “Batgirl,” the upcoming HBO Max superhero film.
The actor is expected to reprise his role as Bruce Wayne a.k.a. Batman, the character he originated in Tim Burton’s 1989 film. He will star alongside Leslie Grace, who has been cast as Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham police commissioner Jim Gordon.
J.K. Simmons is returning to portray Jim Gordon after first playing the character in Zack Snyder’s “Justice League.” And Brendan Fraser will play the villainous Firefly, a sociopath with a passion for pyrotechnics.
