The directors of the now-cancelled Batgirl have spoken out about their disappointment that the film has been cancelled while in post-production.
Batgirl, which starred Leslie Grace as the titular character and would have seen Michael Keaton return as Batman, was due to begin streaming on HBO Max later this year, with filming already completed.
But on Tuesday it was announced that Warner Bros. had made the decision to cancel it, with the directors reportedly learning the news while in Morocco celebrating Adil’s wedding.
Now Adil and Bilal have issued a joint statement expressing their shock and thanking the star-studded Batgirl cast and crew for their work.
‘We are saddened and shocked by the news. We still can’t believe it,’ the pair wrote in a post on Instagram.
