Fraser is reportedly set to play Firefly while Leslie Grace will star as Commissioner Gordon's daughter, Barbara, AKA Batgirl, and Adil El Arbi ('Bad Boys For Life') will direct the film for HBO Max. It's expected to land on the streaming service in 2022.

Fraser has recently finished wrapping his next film 'The Whale,' and he will join Leonardo DiCaprio & Robert De Niro in Martin Scorsese's 'Killers of the Flower Moon'. Fraser was noticeably moved by fan reaction to that major casting.
