It’s hardly believable… Batgirl will not be released on HBO Max or in theaters. What was just a rumor published by the highly unreliable New York Post has now been confirmed by The Wrap and Variety. Warner Bros. Discovery is trashing – there’s no other word for it – a film that’s wrapped and cost a whopping $90 million. It is simply unheard of. The Wrap argues that the group’s new management wants to cut costs before inevitable reshoots and would like to focus on producing DC Comics blockbuster events; gold, Batgirl does not fit in this box. (The news comes amid rumors of a restructuring of HBO Max, which could become just a tab on Discovery+, with the key to refocusing on non-scripted programs. Surviving scripted series would end up on HBO.) For its part, the New York Post speaks of catastrophic test screenings: “The film was so poorly received by viewers that the studio decided to cut its losses and call it quits, for the sake of the brand’s future. It’s a DC disaster. » All in all, this is surprising, especially since Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah have just had two successes with Bad Boys for Life and Ms.Marvel. Clearly, the DC Comics Cinematic Universe is cursed. PS: Blue Beetle and The Flash will they too fall under the blows of the grim reaper?
[Présentation du personnage dans les comics] Barbara Gordon redefined what it meant to be a self-taught hero when she made her own costume and joined Batman’s crusade under her father’s nose. She has always split her existence between two worlds: her life at home as the only daughter of Police Commissioner James Gordon and her life swinging from gargoyle to gargoyle as an associate of the Dark Knight and founding member of the Birds. of Prey. A genius hacker, information broker, and martial arts expert, Babs has proven herself to be a fierce survivor and one of Gotham’s most valuable protectors.

Spoke to people that saw #Batgirl and they said it was a huge disappointment. Also that the costumes looked cheap especially Keaton’s Batman costume. I figured WB would dump it on HBO Max but looks like we will never see it. https://t.co/YtY3bztmVw
