Batgirl , the upcoming DC Comics live-action movie, has been cancelled. An exclusive report from The Wrap confirmed that Warner Bros. has scrapped the $90 million (about Rs. 708 crore) film, marking it dead. Batgirl was in its final stages of post-production, and was originally set to drop this year. But now DC Films has changed course, deciding not to release it either theatrically or on the HBO Max streaming service. The movie stars Leslie Grace in the title role of Barbara Gordon.
According to a statement to The Wrap, Warner Bros.’ decision was a “strategic shift” and had nothing to do with Grace’s performance as Batgirl. “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,” a Warner Bros. Pictures Spokesperson said.
