Fans were certainly excited when they heard Brendan Fraser get a well-deserved role of the DC supervillain Firefly in the now-canceled Batgirl. However, ever since the plot of the movie was leaked last year, fans are happy that the movie was canceled. The reason being the movie would have been mediocre at best, and the storyline didn’t seem to weave a cohesive and captivating narrative.

Here is how fans reacted to the cancelation:

While Brendan Fraser would have been excellent as Firefly, the film’s shortcomings would have only hindered his career trajectory which is only beginning to take flight again.

Why DC’s Batgirl Was Canceled

DC for the longest time has been trying to have an ‘organized’ and ‘connected’ universe similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While lately, they look to have been failing to do so, the move to cancel Batgirl was a result of this ‘organizing attempt’. They explained the cancelation was also a result of their leadership’s strategic shift.

Furthermore, many sources have claimed that the studio felt the movie was not big enough, unworthy of having a big theatrical release in light of the effect of the pandemic on the box office, and was apparently not even small enough to earn a release on a streaming platform.

While fans have expressed that they would rather have the movie released on a streaming platform, many expressed thanks that DC chose to cancel it since it seems like Warner Bros has seemingly run out of the fuel to make ‘great’ superhero movies.
