The lineup of Fraser as a villain was one of the reasons they did ‘Batgirl’ be one of the most anticipated films of the A.D.
Unfortunately, the film ended up being canceled and there is no possibility of being released either in theaters or in the HBO Maxwhich left the star’s fans quite frustrated.
In comics, there are different versions of the villain, Garfield Lynns being one of the most famous.
However, Fraser would give life to another character, a manic ex-military man named Ted Carson.
The information was revealed by the Fraser during a Q&A at GalaxyCon in Raleigh.
“My character is called Ted Carson. This wasn’t very well publicized, I noticed. He’s a new character. He is a military veteran who suffers from anxiety and has a sick wife. He is quite angry that his benefits have been suspended by Gotham’s rulers, so he wants to burn the city down. Batman and Batgirl’s mission is to stop him.”
Ted is not necessarily a new character, as he already appeared in #126 issue of #Batman, written by Bill Finger It is Sheldon Moldoff.
He became an arsonist known as Firefly, but was a wealthy heir who turned to crime out of greed. As the actor made clear, his origin story would be modified much more dramatically.
As the declaration of Fraser was made before the cancellation, so there is still no information on the star’s opinion on the decision, but it is certainly a shock, as playing a villain would be a leap in his career after years without prominence on the big screen.
Check out the occasion:

“At that time, it was unprecedented; It was like history was being made, but in a bizarre way.”El Arbi completed.
Previously, the CEO of Warner Bros. discovery, David Zaslavexplained the reason for the cancellation not only of the aforementioned feature, but of other projects of the company.
“To be honest, we get rid of productions that aren’t helping us. It’s much more than a count of dollars we’re saving from a potential expense. It’s more than just numbers. It is about the restructuring and organization of this universe. We want quality over quantity,” he said.
In addition to Leslie grace It is Brendan Fraser, the cast would still have Michael Keaton (Batman) JK Simmons (James Gordon) Jacob Scipio (Anthony Bressi), Ivory Aquino (Alysia Yeoh) Rebecca Front, corey johnson It is Ethan Kai.
