Alicia Silverstone also slayed in a black one-piece suit. But instead of being the daughter of Commissioner Gordon, captain of the Gotham City Police Department, she played Barbara Wilson, niece of Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred Pennyworth. Her dress: Tight and body hugging.

Not only is the new Batgirl cast in the new strip new, but so is the costume.

A small but significant development in the world of comic book adaptations!

The made-for-TV film (HBO Max) also stars JK Simmons (Batgirl’s father) and Michael Keaton (Batman). The broadcast is scheduled for the end of 2022.
