“Batgirl,” DC Comics’ female superhero counterpart to Batman, won’t ever make it to the screen. Filming for the movie, which was reported by The New York Post to have a budget of more than $100 million, recently wrapped. The Latina actor Leslie Grace hoped that the movie would validate “the dreams of other people” who looked like her.
As part of the original cast of “Batgirl”, Brendan Fraser was to play Firefly, Michael Keaton was to play Batman, and Johnathan Simmons was to play Commissioner Gordon.” Batgirl” was scheduled to be released on HBO Max this year. However, Variety reports that the current Warner Bros.
The Discovery CEO has “made no secret” that he is reversing his previous plan to release first-run feature films on the platform first. The Warner Bros. company also scrapped “Scoob!” Holiday Haunt, an animated extension of the hit “Scooby-Doo” franchise budgeted at $40 million.
The move to not release ‘Batgirl’ is a reflection of our leadership’s strategic shift for the DC universe as well as HBO Max, a Warner Bros. spokesperson said. She is an incredibly talented actor, and this decision has nothing to do with her performance. We deeply appreciate the efforts of the filmmakers of ‘Batgirl’ and ‘Scoob’! “We hope to collaborate with the casts of ‘Holiday Haunt’ and their respective productions shortly.”
