There have been quite a few headlines about DC’s Batgirl movie this week, after Warner Bros. The film won’t be shown in theaters or on HBO Max since Discovery is canceling it completely.
This decision, which is relatively uncommon in the movie industry, has left many wondering what could have been for the film, especially given its position within the DC multiverse.
In addition to Michael Keaton’s return as Bruce Wayne / Batman for the first time in decades, a new report indicates that Batgirl would also contain a reference to Keaton’s original Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer). On the latest episode of The Town with Matthew Belloni podcast, Matthew Belloni and Borys Kit discussed whether it would have been possible to show Pfeiffer’s Catwoman mask.
In the movie, they show Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman mask, which I think is something fans would like to see.” Belloni said. Kit agreed, “that’s a nice Easter egg.” Belloni then clarified, “Yeah, a nice Easter egg.” “However, Michelle Pfeiffer is not in the movie.”
A few months ago, Pfeiffer was asked if she would be interested in playing Catwoman again, and she replied that she would consider it in the right “context.” “She pulled off the almost impossible combo of sexy, ironic, tragic, dangerous, and just plain good,” Pfeiffer said. It depends on the context, but yes, I would consider it.”
Filmed by Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi with a script by Christina Hodson, Batgirl was directed by Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi. Alysia Yeoh would have been played by Ivory Aquino, with Brendan Fraser as Firefly, Leslie Grace as Barbara Gordon / Batgirl, and JK Simmons reprising his role as Commissioner James Gordon.
In addition to Jacob Scipio and Rebecca Front, Corey Johnson and Ethan Kai also joined the cast. Keaton’s return to the screen earlier this year was “wild for everyone,” Grace told Variety. It was insane, surreal, and incredible. It was the stuff of dreams really. Our directors were like two little kids.
They wanted to be Batman nerds openly. He’s Batman, man. I can’t say more. It was insane, surreal, and incredible. I wanted to say more, but I can’t. Batgirl’s Michelle Pfeiffer Easter egg: what do you think? How do you feel about Warner Bros canceling Batgirl?
