The next step on the Brendan Fraser renaissance train is Gotham City as the actor is confirmed to be playing Batman villain Firefly in DC’s upcoming Leslie Grace-fronted Batgirl film for HBO Max. In the comics, Firefly is a special effects guy who turns to crime when he falls on hard times. Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are directing from a script penned by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson. The only other confirmed casting is the return of J.K. Simmons’ Commissioner Jim Gordon.
