Even Batgirl Movie Directors Don’t Know How She Fits Into The DCEU Multiverse

The Bat-girl directors aren’t sure how their movie fits into the DCEU and the larger multiverse. Batgirl is directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, who directed the 2020 film Bad Boys for Life and recently directed the first and sixth episodes of the critically acclaimed MCU series Mrs. Wonder . Batgirl stars Leslie Grace (Into the Heights ) as the superhero incarnation of Barbra Gordon and introduces Brendan Fraiser ( The Mummy ) as the villainous Firefly.

The film will also star JK Simmons as Barbra’s father, Commissioner Gordon, as Simmons previously played the role in both the stage play and Zack Snyder’s Justice League . Batman will also be in the movie, but not the DCEU version of Ben Affleck. Instead, Michael Keaton is reprising his role from 1989’s Batman and 1992 ‘s Batman Returns . Keaton is set to return to the role in 2023 ‘s The Flash , and his appearance in Batgirl alongside a DCEU version of Gordon implies some interesting implications for the aftermath of The Flash.

However, it seems the directorial duo is still at a loss as to exactly how Bat-girl fits into the larger story. In a recent interview with the direct both El Arbi and Fallah said that Batgirl is a mashup of several different parts of the DC Multiverse, and will likely be explained in another DC movie, The Flash . The duo said that DC never really explained the plan for the multiverse to them. The Arbitro said:

“Well, you know, we would give the same answer, because we would also ask, ‘Oh, you have JK Simmons from the Snyderverse and we have Michael Keaton from the Burton-verse. What is the situation there?’ And they said, ‘Don’t worry about it. We have a plan’. They never really explained that aspect to us, but I guess you’ll have to watch the other movies to understand what’s going on, why the reason is that we ended up kind of like spaghetti Multiverses in that aspect. Delicious spaghetti, I’m sure of that.

This comment is very similar to what El Arbi and Fallah said about Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige when they were working on Mrs. Wonder asking if Kamala and her family survived Thanos’ snap at the end of Avengers: Infinity War . It seems that both the MCU and the DCEU have some sort of plan, but they don’t share it in its entirety with the creators, instead hoping they’ll focus on their story and make them work as stand-alone pieces. The standalone nature of the stories may explain how Warner Bros. was able to move so much Shazam! fury of the gods and aquaman and the lost kingdom before the flashafter previously being slated for later, suggesting that those movies didn’t have major connections to the DCEU that The Flash would impact in the same way Bat-girl would .

It’s apparent that Bat-girl is built directly off of The Flash and with that movie being pushed back from November 2022 to June 2023, it means that Bat-girl likely won’t be released until some time later so as not to confuse audiences or reveal the plan. This puts more pressure on Warner Bros. regarding The Flash movie, as they are now figuring out how to handle the movie’s star Ezra Miller and recent worrying headlines for him. While it could be some time until Batgirl hits HBO Max, or if Warner Bros. decides to upload it to theaters, hopefully some behind-the-scenes footage or clips will be shown at San Diego Comic-Con.
