The site Deadline reports that actress Ivory Aquino will play Alysia Yeoh, the best friend of Barbara Gordon, one of the important characters for Batgirl, in addition to the fact that Yeoh is the first transgender character included in the canon of DC Comics.
In the comics, Alysia Yeoh, created by Gail Simone, debuted in the pages of Batgirl #1 as Barbara Gordon’s roommate when the Gotham heroine moved out of her father’s house.
Yeoh, who throughout this series becomes Barbara’s close friend and confidant, comes out as transgender in Batgirl #45, making her the first transgender character in DC Comics history.
Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, the filmmakers behind Bad Boys for Life, will direct Batgirl, which will feature a screenplay by Birds of Prey and The Flash writer Christina Hodson.
The Batgirl cast includes Leslie Grace as Barbara Gordon / Batgirl, JK Simmons as James Gordon, and Brendan Fraser as Garfield Lynns / Firefly.
Like Black Canary, Batgirl will be released exclusively on digital platforms by DC Comics and Warner Bros. Pictures, arriving in 2022.
