Batgirl set photo reveals a possible link to prominent archvillain Lex Luthor and Batman V Superman
The photo shows an edition of the Gotham Tattler, with the cover story being that that Luthor is appealing his prison sentence.
Though interestingly, Luthor’s name is misspelt on the magazine cover.
The cover also mentions witness testimonies from those who survived the Capitol Building attack.
Luthor’s last on-screen appearance was a cameo in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Could this be foreshadowing that Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor will be making a return in Batgirl?
Starring Leslie Grace as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, J.K. Simmons will reprise his role as Barbara’s father Commissioner Gordon.
Michael Keaton will once again reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman.
Brendan Fraser will portray the film’s antagonist Firefly, while Jacob Scipio, Rebecca Front, Corey Johnson, and Ethan Kai round out the rest of the film’s cast.
Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi will be in the directors’ chairs, working from a script penned by Christina Hodson.
