Warner Bros. has axed the Batgirl movie, Variety reports. Despite being filmed and costing $90 million, the superhero flick won't be released in theaters or on any streaming platform. Leslie Grace starred as Barbara Gordon / Batgirl, alongside J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Jim Gordon, Brendan Fraser as the villain Firefly and Michael Keaton reprises his role as Batman. The movie was supposed to be streamed on HBO Max, but according to Variety, "The new corporate regime at Warner Bros. Discovery has pivoted the company’s priorities back to theatrical features, leaving Batgirl without a proper home." Sources insist the decision had nothing to do with the quality of the film, "but by the desire for the studio’s slate of DC features to be at a blockbuster scale." Principal photography was finished earlier this year.
I don't care what they say- it's got to be REALLY bad right?
