Warner Bros. has officially canned the release of Batgirl. Said to have underperformed in a test screening, the film, estimated to have cost between $70 – $90 million USD, will no longer be making a theatrical release nor be available on HBO MAX streaming services.

Staring Leslie Grace, alongside J.K. Simmons, Michael Keaton, and Brendan Fraser, the film ran into delays due to the pandemic and the studio is looking to limit the damage to the franchise, and to make sure the future of DC Films starts off with stronger momentum.

Currently, it seems like the fate of Batgirl is bleak regardless of how many fans are taking to Twitter to voice their anger.
