The cancellation of the film Batgirl by Warner Bros. continues to make waves… The directors and the lead actress recently spoke about it and fans mobilized on social networks with the hashtags #ReleaseTheBatgirlMovie and #SaveTheBatgirlMovie to try to bring back the studios on their decision. It is now Kevin Feige’s turn to react with a very touching message for his colleagues, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.
A condolence email for batgirl
The recent disappointments of Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah have deeply shaken the internet, following the announcement of the cancellation of the film Batgirl. In effect, the two directors have learned that the management of DC Comics has made the decision to cancel the film’s release. The two directors had also had the opportunity to express their deep disappointment.
If Fallah and El Arbi receive a lot of support on social networks, they can also count on that of Kevin Feige, big boss of Marvel Studios.
My friends, I had to contact you and let you know that we are all thinking of you. Because of the marriage (congratulations!) and disappointing news about Batgirl. I’m very proud of you for all the work you do, and especially Miss Marvel of course! I can’t wait to see what awaits you in the future. I hope to see you soon.
Shared by Adil El Arbi and accompanied by the words “Thank you my brother Kevin“, this screenshot of the email from the president of Marvel Studios to the two directors demonstrates an outpouring of solidarity around Batgirl.
While the $70-100 million movie was supposed to be released on HBO Max, it was canceled outright by Warner Bros. for “protect the DC brand“. The official statement from the studios expressed the desire to work with the filmmaking duo again, although it is doubtful that the desire is mutual.
We are incredibly grateful to the directors of Batgirl and Scoob! Holiday Haunt [également annulé] and their respective teams. We hope to be able to collaborate with everyone again in the near future.
Adil El Arbi also shared in his Instagram story the support of two other colleagues, Edgar Wright (Baby Driver) and James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy). So many supports and mobilization in favor of Batgirl should put some balm in the hearts of the filmmakers. And you, what do you think of the cancellation of this film?
