Warner Bros. cancel the release of the film "Batgirl"

The American studio has made the decision not to release the blockbuster, which is almost finished. A unique case in the history of blockbusters.

Change of strategy at Warner Bros. The American studio has made the decision not to release its blockbuster in cinemas or on streaming platforms Batgirl, yet almost complete. A unique case in the history of blockbusters.

According to the American media, including the well-informed varietythe project, which was carried out by the duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Badboys 3, Ms.Marvel), had been validated in 2021 and was to be broadcast later this year on the HBO Max platform.

The film had been made specifically for streaming, hoping to attract subscribers on HBO Mac. He was the spearhead of a strategy aimed at bringing the DC universe to television (several series derived from The Batman are planned).

Scooby-Doo also a victim

This change in strategy is linked to the departure of the former CEO of WarnerMedia, Jason Kilar, and the arrival of his replacement, David Zaslav, who wishes to concentrate the studio’s activities in cinemas.

Another film – also almost finished – was a collateral victim of this new regime: the cartoon Scoob!: Holiday Haunta sequence of Scoob! (2020).

Highly anticipated by DC Comics fans, Batgirl stages for the first time in a live action film the adventures of the famous superheroine. Comedian Leslie Grace was cast in the role, and stars JK Simmons (Gordon), Brendan Fraser (villain Firefly) and Michael Keaton (Batman).
