Batgirl is a name which has been used by several superheroines who are female counterparts to the DC superhero Batman. The movie about Batgirl is due to hit the screens later in 2022.
Actress Leslie Grace who portrays Batgirl in the forthcoming HBO movie dedicated to the superheroine shared a first glimpse of herself in the suit.
She captioned the photo with the lines from the comic book miniseries "Batgirl: Year One".
"I use their expectations against them. 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", the caption reads.
The suit appears to be dark blue with a touch of yellow on the belt and the cape, along with the iconic bat-shaped mask.
However, the superheroine's look seems to have divided opinions: some users praised the choice of Batgirl's outfit as fitting with the comic canons, but others blasted it as a throwback to the age of low-budget TV shows about superheroes.
