What you won’t get to see on big screen

Take a look at these on-set photos from DC Comics’ “Batgirl” — because they’re the only look we’re going to get at the “shelved” film.

Images — taken during the production of the Warner Brothers movie in February in Glasgow, Scotland — feature its star, Leslie Grace, as well as Oscar-winner JK Simmons and “The Mummy” actor Brendan Fraser, plus their stunt doubles.

Michael Keaton, who was set to reprise his 1992 role as Batman, wasn’t pictured on set, but a stunt double in his classic 90s Batsuit was. However, the paparazzi caught Keaton arriving in Glasgow during filming.

Simmons also stuns in stills as Gotham City Police Commissioner Gordon. Dressed in a beige trench coat and striped tie, the actor points a gun at an unlucky stand-in for Keaton in the middle of the road.

And then there’s Batgirl herself, “In The Heights” alum Grace. In a blue leather Batsuit accented with a gold Batgirl symbol and shoes, her body double’s ginger hair pops as she skirts around town on a motorcycle. In another shot, the stuntwoman clutches crew members as she climbs the stairs of a building.

Meanwhile, Fraser’s double was pictured in his villainous Firefly costume, donning a black gas mask with an ominous tank — fuel for the villain’s flamethrowers — strapped to his back.

Fraser himself was spotted walking out of a burning pharmacy clutching a bottle of pills.

The 53-year-old actor’s “Batgirl” role is part of his return to acting, as he stepped away from the business in recent years due to depression.

In 2018, he candidly shared that a former Hollywood Foreign Press Association president allegedly groped him in 2003.

Fraser is already a member of DC’s ever-growing family with his role as Cliff “Robotman” Steele in the HBO Max series “Doom Patrol.”

Other on-set photos include a yellow Gotham taxi cab, as well as fiery explosions — on top of both a fire truck and a burning building.

Before “Batgirl” was scrapped altogether, it was supposed to head straight to HBO Max. The Puck newsletter reported in April that WB’s then-chair, Toby Emmerich, was considering a theatrical run for the film, too.

But Emmerich stepped down in June to form his own production company — not long after Warner Bros. merged with Discovery and David Zaslav became the CEO of the new entity. He replaced Emmerich with MGM’s Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy.

Fans figured something was amiss with the movie when it wasn’t mentioned at all at DC’s San Diego Comic-Con panel last month. The much-publicized event, after all, is designed to boost exposure for upcoming projects just like this one.

When the project was officially deemed over with, a top Hollywood source told The Post that the reportedly $70 million movie — which insiders suggested actually topped $100 million — was not screen-testing very well with audiences.

DC decided to cut its losses for the sake of the brand’s future, the source said.

More candid shots show the actors in street clothes, shooting less intense scenes for the movie. In one, an extra, wearing a City of Gotham Police Department uniform, flashed a peace sign at nearby paparazzi.

The epic film would have been Keaton’s first return to the character Batman in over 30 years, and this could be Keaton’s second strike with DC Comic films. He is also supposed to star as Batman alongside troubled actor Ezra Miller — who uses they/them pronouns — in “The Flash,” a movie that has been shelved until June 2023 due to their bizarre behavior and allegations of grooming allegations against them.

“The Flash” would include not only Keaton but also Ben Affleck as his “Justice League” version of the superhero.
