Batgirl actress Leslie Grace was seen on set of the new HBO film for the first time on Monday in Springburn, Glasgow as the Scottish city continues its transformation into the fictional location of Gotham City.

The new action film – starring Leslie, 27, in the titular role and Michael Keaton as the Dark Knight himself – continued to get underway in the city on Tuesday, as a mural was hoisted into place by members of the crew.

The crew were seen using machinery to lift the brick wall mural of Batman and Robin into place, while elsewhere a billboard for coffee shop Sundollar was given its finishing touches as the city’s transformation nears completion.

Leslie who appeared fresh-faced and make-up free for her set visit wore her brunette hair swept back into a ponytail and layered up in several padded jackets to stay warm.

Other photographs showed set dressers converting a local newsagent into a flower shop while fellow crew members appeared to deliberate the set’s development.

Others wore paint-splattered workwear and huddled around a wooden workbench.

Taking a break, the crew members were also seen visiting a small hut selling Dutch pancakes.

It comes after Glasgow residents were offered free earplugs and blackout blinds due to disturbance caused by the filming of HBO Max’s upcoming film, which saw crew members erect graffiti-covered boards featuring Batman, teacups and crabs onto walls on Monday.
