‘Irredeemable’ ‘Batgirl’ movie gets ‘shelved’ by Warner Bros despite $70M price tag

quote:

Holy millions down the drain, Batman!

The new DC Comics film “Batgirl,” which still has no release date, will be completely “shelved” by Warner Bros., a top Hollywood source told The Post.

That means it won’t hit theaters or the streaming service HBO Max. Fans will not see it.

The reportedly $70 million movie (the source said the budget was actually more than $100 million), which was doing test screenings for audiences in anticipation of a late 2022 debut, would rank among the most expensive cinematic cast-offs ever.

Those tests were said to be so poorly received by moviegoers that the studio decided to cut its losses and run for the sake of the brand’s future. It’s a DC disaster.

You can bet that movie is W O K E. Which is why it’s going in the dustbin.

Wasn't Michael Keaton supposed to make an appearance as Batman in that movie?

Harley Quinn/Batgirl sex scene. Problem solved.

That's a good call by WB. Who in the world was asking for that movie?

I'll believe it when I don't see it.

No way they wouldn't retool this into some filler streaming content for HBO Max.

Seems hard to believe they would just burn 70 mil like that. You would think they would try to recover some of it

I call bull shite.

There is no way in hell it's worse than Catwoman and that got a 3k theater wide release.

You can only hope and dream, I guess.

It looks like Zaslav is just cutting costs for HBO Max. I don't think he'll do anything with the theatrical films. He has a reputation of being a penny pincher, and I see why.

Spoke to people that saw #Batgirl and they said it was a huge disappointment. Also that the costumes looked cheap especially Keaton’s Batman costume. I figured WB would dump it on HBO Max but looks like we will never see it.
