The Warner Bros Discovery merger has brought mixed fortunes with it. While some high profile officials were relieved of their duties, others may have been lucky enough to survive the big stick in the meantime.
The high-profile cancellations happening within the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) right now thanks means there is a reshuffling of the deck and a new vision being proposed for the whole studio.
Last week, Warner Bros Discovery announced they were scrapping “Batgirl” even though the movie is at post-production level. Also it has been revealed that the movie was already costing $90million and the studio spending nearly $100 million dollars on it or N41.9billion Naira.
Batgirl was set to star Leslie Grace in the lead role, Brendan Fraser was to star as the villain while Michael Keaton’s Batman was set to be reintroduced into the DCEU through the movie. However, the newly merged entertainment studio will now pass it off as a tax write-off, choosing to make only blockbusters and moving forward with a different plan.
Batgirl was scheduled to drop sometime later this year on HBO Max but won’t be seeing the light of day for now. It will not be released on HBO MAX or in the cinema.
