Leslie Grace just snagged herself the plum role of Batgirl for an upcoming HBO Max movie in which J.K. Simmons is rumored to return to his role as her father, Commissioner Gordon. It’s a prime snag for the In The Heights star, even if it is going straight to streaming — although that’s not exactly unheard-of for A-list projects. Just ask Scarlett Johansson. Batgirl’s one of those characters that has a super-high recognition factor built into her, which makes Grace’s casting a potentially big leap forward for her career. Anyway, we’re saying all this, because we think she showed up at her DCEU compatriots’ premiere (a savvy move) in a highly focus-pulling gown with a sort of sexy Batperson feel to it (an even savvier move):
It’s not winning any design innovation awards, but it’s dramatic as hell and quite the flex for a red carpet attendee who’s not in the film. Gotta love that. Get your time in the spotlight, (Bat)girl.
