Despite the $90 million "Batgirl" nearly entirely shot and in post-production, Warner Bros. will not release the film in theaters or on HBO Max. In a statement, directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah wrote, "We are saddened and shocked by the news. We still can't believe it. As directors, it is critical that our work be shown to audiences, and while the film was far from finished, we wish that fans all over the world would have had the opportunity to see and embrace the final film themselves. Maybe one day they will insha'Allah."
The film was set to star Leslie Grace, Michael Keaton, J.K. Simmons, and Brendan Fraser.
