JK Simmons has had quite a run in the comic book movie world, returning in the role of J. Jonah Jameson Spider-Man: No Way Home over at Marvel Studios, his legions of fans are now eagerly awaiting his return to the role of Gordon after his justice league Appearances were more of a cameo role than something significant in the DCEU. Speaking to Collider, Simmons explained how this time is different. He said:
“Batgirl was a treat for a number of reasons. My little part in the Justice League back then was supposed to be, ‘Look, we’re going to introduce this guy and we’ll see more of him in the future.’ I didn’t have much to do. In Batgirl, it’s much more of a domestic aspect of Jim Gordon due to the relationship between Commissioner Gordon and his daughter. We’re getting some fun out there on the road to see… Well I’ll stop now because I really don’t want to make any spoilers. But it was fun doing the stuff with Leslie Grace, who plays Batgirl, and portraying a different aspect of Jim Gordon than Commissioner Gordon.”
Batgirl could still get a theatrical release
At the time of writing, bat girl is still slated to premiere on HBO Max, but with Warner Bros.’s merger with Discovery bringing about a number of strategic changes within the company, that could all change. During Blue Beetle has already been released in cinemas in August 2023, but there has not yet been any confirmation of this bat girl‘s release either way.

It is not yet known whether Keaton’s appearances in bat girl and The Lightning are explicitly linked or not, or which should be first in the DCEU timeline, but with many schedule changes and cancellations already announced, the real question is whether bat girls current release schedule will endure?
