The forthcoming DC picture Batgirl will conclude shooting next week in Glasgow, Scotland.
J.K. Simmons will reprise his role as Jim Gordon from Zack Snyder’s Justice League in the HBO Max original film set in the DC Extended Universe, while Leslie Grace of In the Heights will play his daughter, Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl. Michael Keaton reprises his role as Bruce Wayne, nicknamed Batman, in this sequel to the Tim Burton duology of films.
The picture is slated to be released later this year, having begun production in November 2021. According to Glasgow Live writer Craig Williams, the shoot will wrap up next week, on Thursday, March 31, with the chance of a last shot at Glasgow Cross on Friday.
“Bon voyage Babs 🦇,” Williams wrote on a Twitter post.

Even as the production closes, Borderland, a new thriller starring John Boyega from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is poised to begin filming in Scotland’s largest city, according to Glasgow Live.
It’ll be fascinating to watch how the DCEU progresses now that Zack Snyder is no longer involved. Last year’s Zack Snyder’s Justice League was the last time we saw the world of Batman depicted in the DCEU.
The Dark Knight was supposed to make a triumphant comeback to the series later this year with The Flash, which would include Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck’s Batman, but the film has been postponed until 2023.
If the film’s anticipated release date of approximately December 2022 holds true, it will be the first time Batman has returned to the DCEU since the Snyder period.
The Batman, a film starring Robert Pattinson that is presently in cinemas, is likewise about the Caped Crusader, but it is set in a realm different from the DCEU.
Don’t feel terrible if you’re perplexed by how all these timelines are meant to fit together; Simmons has voiced comparable perplexity at both DC and Marvel’s multiverse antics.
