HOLLYWOOD star Leslie Grace has revealed the first look at Batgirl's costume as filming for the blockbuster continues in Glasgow. 

The 27-year-old actress, who is set to play the role of Barbara Gordon - also known as Batgirl - posted a picture of herself wearing the costume on social media yesterday.

Sharing the snap with her 1.2 million Instagram followers, Leslie captioned the image using a quote from DC's Batgirl: Year One. 

It reads: "I use their expectations against them. That will be their weakness. Not mine. Let them all underestimate me...

"And when their guard is down, and their pride is rising, let me kick their butts - Batgirl, Year One."
