You may have been hoping that this news about DC’s Batgirl movie being canceled late into production and never being released on HBO Max wasn’t real, but now it’s time to accept the truth. Directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah posted a statement on Instagram about the news, and they aren’t minced words.”We are shocked and saddened by this news,” they wrote.
“We are still unable to believe it. In our role as directors, our work must be shown to audiences, and while the film was still in its early stages, we wish that fans throughout the world had had the opportunity to see and enjoy it. Insha’Allah, maybe one day they will.”In a statement, the production team continues, “Our amazing cast and crew worked so hard to bring Batgirl to life.
” “I am grateful for the chance to be part of such an amazing team of people.”. Working with such great actors like Michael Keaton, JK Simmons, Brendan Fraser, Jacob Scipio, Corey Johnson, Rebecca Front, and especially Leslie Grace, who portrayed Batgirl with such aplomb, was an absolute pleasure. We hold passion, dedication, and humanity in high regard.
“Warner Bros. Batgirl’s cancellation has not been publicly addressed by Discovery, but reports attribute it to a change in leadership in the company, which is now focusing on big-budget tentpole movies instead of mid-range movies like Batgirl that were intended for HBO Max instead of multiplexes.
Additionally, they suggest that if the movie is shelved in its entirety, the company stands to benefit from a tax deduction for Batgirl. We have been huge Batman fans since we were little kids, and it has been an honor to take part in the DCEU, even for a short time,” Adil and Bilall said in their statement. You have to believe that it would be a much greater honor to let the movie be seen than to just be a part of the screening.
