The Batgirl movie has been cancelled despite being deep in post-production and just hours after the announcement, Warner Brothers issued a statement saying the decision was strictly business-related. In a statement via THR, a spokesperson for the studio said they would still like to work with the talent in future projects though the feature films they have already worked on with them were cancelled.
“The decision to not release Batgirl reflects our leadership’s strategic shift as it relates to the DC universe and HBO Max,” said a Warner Bros. spokesperson in a statement. “Leslie Grace is an incredibly talented actor and this decision is not a reflection of her performance. We are incredibly grateful to the filmmakers of Batgirl and Scoob! Holiday Haunt and their respective casts and we hope to collaborate with everyone again in the near future.”
Actor Leslie Grace was set to star as Barbara Gordon in the Batgirl movie. Unfortunately now, we will never see the release of the DC film. It was reported that it would not be seen in theaters or on HBO Max.
