We know that In The Heights star Leslie Grace will play Barbara Gordon as Batgirl in a DC film for HBO Max.

Also,  J.K. Simmons will reprise his role as Commissioner Gordon for the Batgirl film.

With that film taking place in the same universe, a crossover film featuring Batgirl is a distinct possibility.

Furthermore, there’s every chance that some of Smollett’s fellow Birds of Prey cast members could reprise their roles.

Given that the Black Canary film is still very much in the early stages of development, all rumours should be taken with a pinch of salt right now.

What we do know, is Misha Green is being tasked with writing the Black Canary film’s screenplay.

Fingers crossed that all these films eventually lead to a Birds of Prey sequel!
