‘Bad Boys For Life’ Directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah To Helm ‘Batgirl’ Movie



Warner Bros. long-gestating Batgirl movie has finally found its directors in Bad Boys For Life directing duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.

The duo most recently helmed an a few episodes of Disney+ Ms. Marvel series where they both served as co-showrunners on the show.

Batgirl will follow Barbra Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon.

Christina Hodson, who wrote Birds of Prey and The Flash for Warner Bros. is penning the script. Batgirl is being planned as a movie for HBO Max.

American film producers Kristin Burr (Cruella) is producing Batgirl for HBO Max. She released a statement:

“With Batgirl, we hope to take the audience on a fun ride and see a different side of Gotham. Christina’s script is crackling with spirit. Adil and Bilall have an excited and joyous energy which is infectious, making them the perfect filmmakers for this Batproject. And I’m just psyched I get to be part of the DC universe, which is super cool.”

Batgirl has been in development for a long time. Joss Whedon took a crack at it in 2018, but luckily for us he departed the project prior to allegations on improper behaviour. Many believed Batgirl was yet another DC project that would never see the light of day. However, during AT&T’s Analyst & Investor Day 2021 presentation in March, Batgirl was teased as one of the projects still in development.
