Actors Leslie Grace and Ethan Kai have been pictured on what is believed to be the set of the new Batgirl film.

Filming is underway at the site in Glasgow in the Trongate area of the city.

Surrounded by masked shoppers, the pair were seen holding hands and walking round a makeshift Christmas market.

They clutched hot drinks and exchanged smiles before coming to a stop near a sign for The Bell Tower.

Grace, who stars in In The Heights, will play the film’s title role though Kai’s character is still unknown.

They will star alongside Mummy actor Brendan Fraser, who is rumoured to play DC villain Firefly, and JK Simmons.
