Leslie Grace Reacts to ‘Batgirl’ Cancellation

Leslie Grace knows better than anyone that the loss of Batgirl is a bit of a downer. She took to Instagram recently to release a statement about the sudden cancellation of the film.

For those who don’t know, the $90 million dollar film will not be seen in theaters or on HBO Max. Many people were shocked by the move, and Warner Bros.’s full motive remains more or less unknown. Most reports claim it has something to do with the recent merger between Warner Bros. and Discovery.

You can read the post below.

In it, Grace talks about how proud she was of the work she did on the film, despite the fact that it will likely never see the light of day. The film wasn’t quite finished yet, but at least it was finished shooting and had entered post-production. Grace mentions that filming took “over 7 months in Scotland.”

The directors also shared their feelings about the sad fate Batgirl. Of course, they weren’t terribly happy to see things go down the way they did. In an Instagram post, Adil El Arbi and Bilal Fallah shared their feelings. It was mostly positive, despite apparently hearing the news at El Arbi’s wedding. They pray that the film might one day find a way to see the light of day.

While the official rationale for the film’s preservation makes sense, it just doesn’t really seem like a big enough reason to scrap a whopping $90 million. Others have pointed out that a lot of other programming for HBO Max is getting the ax as part of the company’s post-merger restructuring. There’s also the fact that Warner Bros. Discovery is going to write off the film’s entire budget if they don’t release it.
