We are sadly shocked by the news, we still can’t believe it. As directors, despite the film being far from finished, and we were hoping that our final work would hit the screens of fans around the world, giving them the opportunity to embrace it. Our great cast did an amazing job and put a lot of effort into bringing Batgirl to life, and we will forever be grateful for being a part of it.
The same Leslie Grace released a few words about the film and its cancellation:
By virtue of the recent news of the Batgirl movie cancellation, I am proud of the love, hard work and intentions of our incredible cast and tireless crew, who have put together this movie in Scotland in over 7 months. I feel blessed to have worked with them and have “forged” some wonderful relationships while working. To all Batgirl fans: THANK YOU for your love and your belief in us, which allowed me to put on the cape and become, as Babs best put it, “but my goddamn heroine.”
