As production on the blockbuster by Belgian directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Bad Boys 3, Ms. Marvel), with a budget of 90 million dollars, was coming to an end, Warner decided to cancel the release of the film, tells us Variety. Batgirl staged, for the first time in a live action film, the adventures of the famous DC superheroine. Leslie Grace (In the Heights) was chosen to take on the role opposite JK Simmons (Gordon), Brendan Fraser (the villainous Firefly) and Michael Keaton (Batman). Highly anticipated by DC Comics fans, Batgirl will therefore not have a cinema release and will not be broadcast on HBO Max either. According to the American media, this decision is linked to a recent change in strategy within the studios. While the film had been designed for the HBO Max platform in order to attract new subscribers, the new CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery decided to reorient DC Universe productions for theaters, and so Batgirl did not meet the new demands for spectacular, super-big-budget blockbusters. The New York Post evokes for its part very poor feedback following the test screenings. The cartoon Scoob!: Holiday Haunt, sequel to Scoob!, is the other victim of this change of course. The production, in which Warner Bros. had injected 40 million dollars, was almost finished, but the release of the film on any medium has also just been canceled. In addition to the surprising management of Warner, there are cascading complications. While the bitter lawsuit between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp finally proved the actor right, jeopardizing the production of Aquaman 2, The Flash also has lead in the wing following the new legal escapades of Ezra Miller on the sidelines of filming. We do not yet know what fate the studios will reserve for the cursed film with a budget of 200 million dollars in the project since 2014, but Warner has definitely had a hard time and is struggling to bring order to its DC Extended Universe.
