In a move that is bound to hurt DCEU fans, Warner Bros. has decided to cancel the feature film adaptation of the DC Comic's character 'Batgirl'.
The film which featured Leslie Grace as Barbara Gordon a.k.a Batgirl and Brendan Fraser as Firefly had already finished principal photography and was now in post-production.
The movie also had JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Micheal Keaton as Batman.
'Batgirl' was greenlit in 2021 with directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah as a company-wide decision to produce more content for HBO Max.
But since Discovery acquired Warner Bros., it seems they have pivoted to put the focus back on theatrical releases.
'Batgirl' was one of the few DCEU properties that Warner Bros. had that had not been plagued by controversy recently, with both 'The Flash' and 'Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom' being plagued by controversy and negative press in recent months due to their stars. So, the decision to completely cancel a movie, one which had already cost $90 million is surprising.
Fans were excited about the comic book adaptation after shots of Leslie Grace and Brendan Fraser on set leaked last year.
