Warner Bros.’ decision to scrap the Batgirl picture has left its directors “saddened and horrified.”
The directors of Batgirl have expressed their “sadness and bewilderment” at Warner Bros.’ decision to cancel the film’s release months in advance.
Fans were given the option to “watch and love the final film firsthand” by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah in an Instagram joint statement.

An estimated $70 million (£57.6 million) was reportedly spent on the film’s production, which was due for release at the end of 2022.
The studio chose to bury the project after a few test screenings, and it will no longer be available in theaters or on HBO Max, according to reports in the United States.
A number of members of the cast and crew, including Grace and co-star Ethan Kai, were photographed filming in Scotland earlier this week.
Set builders in Glasgow’s Trongate neighborhood converted the neighborhood into Gotham City in January, altering storefronts and police cars.
This season of Batgirl was supposed to be all on Gotham’s police commissioner Jim Gordon’s daughter, Barbara Gordon.
