Warner Bros. Discovery and David Zaslav canceled the project to use it as a tax write-off, which would prove if the movie has actually been deleted completely, and the tax write-off would mean they couldn’t make earnings from Batgirl, so that’s why they may have deleted everything to not risk any leak or release.

Batgirl directors, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah talked about their experiences with the film’s cancellation in a YouTube interview and revealed, that it was a surprise for them.

“The guys from Warners told us it was not a talent problem from our part or from the actress, or even the quality of the movie, We were right in the middle of editing. There was a lot of work to do. So it was not like the movie was finished. They told us it was a strategic change. A shifting in management. They can save some bucks.”

Bilall Fallah added:

“First, when I heard the news, I was shocked. I did not know how to react. I wanted to break stuff. Cry. I was like it’s not happening.”

What shocked us was that the film was reportedly 90% complete as per the media reports and it was set for a streaming release on HBO Max later this year. The story would have shown the origin story for the titular character, with Leslie Grace holding the lead role. JK Simmons, who played Jim Gordon in the DCEU films, was set to appear again. But the biggest excitement and plan was the return of Michael Keaton’s most awaited Batman return. But the film got canceled in August due to the so-called ‘strategic decision’ by Warner Bros.
