The Belgian-Moroccan filmmakers Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, who serve as the director of the upcoming superhero film Batgirl, revealed that the film will feature fan-favorite superhero, Batman.

"Now you're asking too much." "I can say that it's really Batman Batman," Arbi said. "But who, we can't say," Fallah added. When asked if the actor in question was someone who'd played Batman before, such as Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, or Val Kilmer, Arbi said, "I don’t think we’re allowed to go into that much detail," the duo revealed the surprising detail while speaking with VRTNWS.

Though the film directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah did not confirm which version of the Batman will be seen in the superhero blockbuster film, the fans got pretty excited as they will be once again able to see the Dark Knight in some action.

The duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah's comments come off as recently, the leading star of the film 26-year-old Leslie Grace set to portray the role of Batgirl shared her preparation for the film with fans, ahead of its shooting while talking with Billboard. "Lots and lots of training! I'm currently fight-training every day with my amazing 'martial arts mom,' Ming Qiu, who cracks the whip!" Grace revealed with a laugh. "I've never fought in my life, so we are working really hard every day to get my body used to all the motions! I'm also reading a ton of comics and, believe it or not, keeping my eye out for tweets from our beloved DC comic fans to see what they are excited to see in my iteration of Babs! Research is everything."

Grace continued saying that she is pretty excited to play Batgirl, the female counterpart to Batman in the film. "I'm so excited to honor this iconic character whose legacy spans over 50 years, It's a huge responsibility but also an honor -- and I want to do my very best to make sure she gets the best of all I have to give!"

While the studio has been very careful when it comes to revealing major details about the much-anticipated film with the audience but what little is known about it is that the fans will be able to see actor J.K. Simmons once again returning to play the popular role of Commissioner James Gordon and Leslie Grace in the role of Batgirl also known as Barbara Gordon in the film.
