According to Peter Safran, co-CEO of DC Studios, the Cancellation of Batgirl movie starring Leslie Grace was a “bold and brave decision”.
As reported by Variety, Peter Safran shared his thoughts on Batgirl during the press conference held by Warner Bros., where he and his partner, James Gunn, gave details about the first wave of movies and TV series that will shape the reboot of the DC universe.
“Batgirl is a character that we will inevitably include in our story”Saffron said. “As for Batgirl, it’s not like the movie got canceled too late in the process. I saw the movie, and there are a lot of incredibly talented people in front of and behind the camera on that movie.”
“But that film could not be released, and sometimes it happens”he continued. “Actually, I think [el presidente y CEO de Warner Bros. Discovery, David] Zaslav and the team made a very bold and brave decision to cancel it because it would have hurt DC. It would have harmed the people involved“.
Apparently the movie, which cost 90 million dollarshad finished filming and was in the post-production phase when was canceled in early 2022 by new management following Discovery’s merger with WarnerMedia.
Safran also reiterated that he would welcome the opportunity to work with the Batgirl writers and directors on future projects and that “some people have already come back to work with us”.
