Warner Bros Discovery’s „Batgirl” superhero film featuring a female version of the Caped Crusader was declared as ‘irredeemable’ by by studio executives shocking the film world. Despite being completely finished and reportedly having cost $90 million (£75 million), Batgirl will never be released in any format including on the internet streaming services, as it was considered too bad for the cinema after bad audience feedback at test scrrenings, with an execrable 8 per cent approval rating. “We are saddened and shocked by the news. We still can’t believe it,” directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah wrote on Instagram. “Our amazing cast and crew did a tremendous job and worked so hard to bring Batgirl to life. We are forever grateful to have been part of that team,” they added. The film featured Keaton as Batman, Leslie Grace as Batgirl, Brendan Fraser as villain Firefly and JK Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon.
Star actress Leslie Grace tweeted that she was “proud of the love, hard work and intention all of our incredible cast and tireless crew put into this film over seven months”, adding she felt “blessed to have worked among absolute greats and forged relationships for a lifetime in the process”. Another movie was also canceled: „Scoob! Holiday Haunt.” It was the never-before told story of how lifelong friends Scooby and Shaggy first met and how they joined forces with young detectives Fred, Velma and Daphne to form the famous Mystery Inc.
