The conclusion to chop down Batgirl, which was planned to be released on HBO Max later came after a series of test screenings that were filtered by audiences, and studio experts thought it would damage the outlook of the brand as they explore streamlining the DC Universe. Leslie Grace stood out to support after the termination and dropped behind-the-scenes photos along with the video clip from the film’s production.

“Querida familia! On the heels of the recent news about our movie ‘Batgirl,’ I am proud of the love, hard work, and intention all of our incredible cast and tireless crew put into this film over seven months in Scotland.”

“I feel blessed to have worked among absolute greats and forged relationships for a lifetime in the process! To every Batgirl fan – THANK YOU for the love and belief, allowing me to take on the cape and become, as Babs said best, ‘my own damn hero!”
