Batgirl’s Cancellation And Why It Happened
The Warner Bros. production Batgirl, which was one of the most eagerly awaited projects for fans, was filmed in Glasgow, Scotland. The film had almost finished filming, was being edited, and was scheduled for release later this year.
When the movie was shelved for a variety of reasons, the over 70 million dollars that were spent on its creation suffered a significant loss, disappointing a wide range of admirers and eager viewers.
One of the cited reasons, according to the production firm, is that the test screenings’ reception was less than enthusiastic, aside from the fact that the planned path DC wished to take underwent a major turn, causing the production company to cut their losses and scrap the film.
The Talented Natalie Holt Shares Her Views
The work of composer Natalie Holt on projects like Obi-Wan Kanobi and Loki season one has been praised for showcasing her amazing talents. She was also hired for Loki season two.
She was recently questioned about her forthcoming endeavors, as well as the cancellation of Batgirl.
“I had written about an hour and a half of music. I’ve been working on it for a year. So yeah, pretty sad what’s happened to it. I was on set last Christmas, Adil and Bilall really loved Loki and that’s why I got picked to do the score for Batgirl. So it’s a shame that it’s not going to be out there in the world after all that time, like having spent a year working on it. Yeah, pretty disappointing.”
“I don’t know. I think it’s a massive shame. It’s been a pleasure to work with the people involved, but that’s all I can say.”
It really is a tragedy that we will never have the opportunity to hear the work of genius by this incredible composer, whatever the cause for the cancellation may have been.
Currently, Disney+ is streaming the first season of Loki.
