Despite Marvel Studios’ strong competition with its biggest rival, Kevin Feige has backed the directors of ‘Batgirl’ who have lost their films following the news that the movie has been canceled.
As Warner Bros. announced its shocking decision, the primary producer of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as other filmmakers contacted the two filmmakers. The producer shared a screenshot on his Instagram Story of an email Al Arbi recently received.
The message read: “My friends, I wanted to let you know that we are thinking about you both. Due to the wonderful news about your wedding (congrats!) and the disappointing news about Batgirl. I am very proud of you guys for all your hard work, especially Ms. Marvel. Hope to see you soon.” It was overwritten with “Thanks, brother Kevin” by Al Arbi.
In another Story, the director expressed his gratitude for “all the messages of support all over the world” and specifically thanked Edgar Wright and James Gunn for their “kind words and experience,” which “(helped) them through this difficult period.”
On Tuesday, Warner Bros. confirmed it had opted against releasing ‘Batgirl’ and ‘Scoob! ‘. It’s a holiday haunt. A Warner Bros. spokesperson said, “Batgirl won’t be released because of our leadership’s strategic shift regarding the DC universe and HBO Max.”
As the statement continued, “Leslie Grace is an incredible actor and this decision has nothing to do with her performance. We are extremely grateful to the filmmakers of ‘Batgirl’ and ‘Scoob! Holiday Haunt’ and the casts for the opportunity to work together again in the future.”
