Michael Keaton’s Batman was spotted at the set of HBO Max’s Batgirl. After 30 years Keaton is returning to his titular character in The Flash, and Batgirl. Batgirl is currently filming on the streets of Glasgow. A Twitter handle @BatgirlFilm shared the images. Check out the images below.

According to DC Comics, Barbara Gordon redefined what it meant to be a self-made hero when she crafted her own costume and joined Batman’s crusade right under her father’s nose. The mean streets of Gotham City have a number of guardian angels watching over them. And one of the first—the young woman who turned the Dynamic Duo into the Batman family—was Batgirl. Barbara Gordon has always existed between two worlds: her life at home as the only daughter of Police Commissioner James Gordon and her life swinging from gargoyles as an associate of the Dark Knight and a founding member of the Birds of Prey.
Batgirl is directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, who directs Bad Boys for Life. producer Kristin Burr described both as having “an excited and joyous energy which is infectious.” written by Christina Hodson, who penned the script of Birds of Prey and The Flash for DC.
Batgirl will be released exclusively in theaters and HBO Max sometime in 2022.
