In the film, Brendan Fraser is set to play the notorious DC villain Firefly. Firefly is a master thief and mainly a rampant pyromaniac. Leslie Grace will take on the titular role of Barbara Gordon and none other than JK Simmons himself will also be returning after his turn as her father Commissioner Gordon in Justice League, with his scenes set to begin filming in Scotland in January 2022.
