Batgirl”, the new superhero film by Belgian directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah will ultimately not be released in cinemas or on streaming platforms, several American media specializing in entertainment reported on Wednesday, including The Wrap and Deadline. Production company Warner Bros. halted production of the film, which had already been shot.
At an estimated cost of around $90 million, “Batgirl” was to be released in theaters and be part of a series of feature films for the HBO Max streaming platform.
However, Warner Bros. ultimately decided to halt production on the film for a reason that remains unclear.
Several big names starred in the film, such as Michael Keaton and Leslie Grace.
Last month, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah received critical acclaim for directing “Ms. Marvel”, a mini-series produced for Disney about a teenage girl of Pakistani origin endowed with superpowers.
