Composer Natalie Holt shares a picture from the set of the DC Extended Universe’s Batgirl, revealing a first gander at a Gotham City Police Department uniform. A solo movie following Barbara Gordon’s, the little girl of Commissioner Jim Gordon, iteration of Batgirl has been in the works for a long while with various creatives joined, including Joss Whedon, who left the undertaking in 2016.
Presently, Leslie Grace (In the Heights) is set to star in directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah’s (Bad Boys for Life) Batgirl with a script by Birds of Prey and The Flash author, Christina Hodson.Batgirl’s composer, Natalie Holt, as of late shared a picture from the set of the movie on Twitter. The post features what appears to be a GCPD uniform. Look at it below:
Holt has composed music for films including Kindred (2020), Herself (2020), and Infidel (2020). Most as of late, Holt composed the Blade Runner-esque score for Marvel Studios’ Loki on Disney+, which more than bodes well for her forthcoming success in the DCEU. DC films revolving around Gotham have set a point of reference for iconic scores – most outstandingly, The Dark Knight Trilogy’s base music composed by the amazing Hans Zimmer. Also, Michael Giacchino’s score for Matt Reeves’ The Batman is now causing ripple effects online. That being said, Batgirl will not occur in the last’s Gotham. Instead, Barbara’s city will presumably exist in the same universe as Ben Affleck’s caped crusader.
Batgirl is poised to feature Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League’s Gotham through the eyes of its saint, who’s been confirmed to be a GCPD cop. As the girl of Jim Gordon, Barbara will have an interesting perspective on Gotham—her decision to turn into a vigilante being affected by the police force’s ineffectiveness. A spinoff series fixated on The Batman’s GCPD is also coming to HBO Max. That juxtaposition between Batgirl’s GCPD and The Batman’s should interesting. Regardless, Batgirl is the first Bat-driven film to spawn from what remains of the SnyderVerse, denoting the DCEU’s only female-drove superhero movie besides Wonder Woman, and anticipation is mounting.
