Today, the New York Post announced that Warner Brothers parent company Discovery has completely removed Batgirl from their release slate. This is the first post-production DC film that will not ever be released theatrically or on HBO Max. After the initial merger, the company also axed The Wonder Twins before production ever began following the cast announcement the week prior. The film did have several test screenings over the summer and was met with mixed to positive reviews from fans. The studio stated they want DC Films to only have a theatrical release schedule and not streaming.

The film was expected to star Leslie Grace as Barbara Gordon, Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne, J.K Simmons as Jim Gordon, and the return of Brendon Fraiser as the villain Firefly. The movie was directed by Bad Boys 4 Life and Ms. Marvel directing duo Adil El Arbil & Bilall Fallah. It’s unknown where Static Shock or the recently completed filming Blue Beetle stand, but they were previously announced to be released theatrically.
