Many people are very excited that after one Batman reboot after another there is finally going to be a movie made that revolves around Batgirl.

Naturally, any time there is a movie or TV show that centers on an iconic superhero there is always much anticipation waiting to see what the costume is going to look like. No one wants another Green Lantern debacle or a Batsuit with nipples.

So when HBO Max and Batgirl actress Leslie Grace revealed what the costume is going to look like over the weekend, fans had many reactions and not all of them were good.

β€œI use their expectations against them,” Grace captioned the photo. “That will be their weakness. Not mine. Let them all underestimate me…

“And when their guard is down, and their pride is rising, let me kick their butts.” – Batgirl, Year One

Sadly, the Batgirl suit did not meet many fans’ expectations.

Surprisingly, rather than just ignore all the noise, Batgirl co-director Adil El Arbi instead decided to fire back, telling fans to “STFU and wait for the film!”

Of course, that didn’t work with everyone.

What many fans failed to understand is that the movie is about Batgirl’s early years. Years in which she, like Peter Parker, made her own suit.

So, while Adil El Arbi probably could have been a little bit more diplomatic with his response to all of the whining about the suit, he’s not wrong.

However, there hasn’t been any official plot for the movie revealed yet, which certainly didn’t help with the misunderstanding.

All we do know is that it is going to be released sometime in 2022 and that Michael Keaton will be back as Batman, J.K. Simmons will be portraying Commissioner Gordon again, and Brendan Fraser has a role in the film, playing Garfield Lynns, AKA Firefly.
