A year after Warner Bros. unexpectedly shelved Batgirl, the existing Barbara Gordon, Leslie Grace, talked about the decision. A post Grace made on Instagram thanked the cast and crew of Batgirl for their contribution, as well as the fans for allowing her to become “my own damn hero!”
“Lovely family! On the heels of recent news about our movie Batgirl, I want to express my gratitude to our incredible cast and crew for their love, hard work, and intention over the past seven months in Scotland,” the In the Heights star wrote on Instagram.
“As a Batgirl fan, I would like to thank you for the love and belief which allowed me to wear the cape and become, as Babs said best, ‘my own damn hero!'” It was a surprise that the studio’s actions caught the directors off guard, as they praised “the great Leslie Grace, who played Batgirl with such passion, dedication, and humanity.”
A joint statement on Instagram said, “We are saddened and shocked by the news. We still can’t believe it.” It’s important for directors to show their work to audiences, and we hope that fans all over the world will get to see the final product one day.
In addition to Michael Keaton as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Brendan Fraser played the villain Firefly, J.K. Simmons played Commissioner Gordon, and Brendan Fraser played Firefly. However, Batgirl wasn’t the only movie to suffer last night as the $0.50 million animated film Scoob! : Holiday Haunt was also canceled.
