After Batgirl’s Cancellation, Supergirl May Be In Bother Too

After Batgirl’s surprise cancellation, all eyes are on Supergirl … and it doesn’t look good.

According to Rolling Stonethe renovation at Warner Bros. Discovery beyond DC’s upcoming Batgirl movie — it’s likely to influence other super-powered projects as well.

“Supergirl, which is in development, is unlikely to go forward,” said people familiar with the project.

A Supergirl movie has been in the works at Warner Bros. since it was announced in 2018. Since then, 26-year-old Sasha Calle has been cast in the title role as Kara Danvers, aka Supergirl. While fans recently went wild after seeing her in the Supergirl costume, it looks like the upcoming film is also in danger of being canned.

The new Supergirl was set to make her big screen debut in the upcoming solo Flash movie starring Ezra Miller, with her own solo movie to follow later. But now that this movie is unlikely to happen, there seems to be serious doubt about his appearance on The Flash, too.

The cancellation of Batgirl appears to have far-reaching implications for the troubled studio, which has also begun removing HBO Max Originals from its online streaming service.

Of course, Supergirl isn’t the only superhero looking nervously on the chopping block – DC also made earlier commitments to a Blue Beetle movie starring Cobra Kai’s Xolo Maridueña, and the planned Black Canary movie starring Jurnee Smollett main part.

You have to wonder if these projects will move forward, and what other DC projects are in the firing line. Either way, it looks like Warner Bros. Discovery is moving forward in a big way, and their beloved DC properties are not clear where they stand.

Despite the cancellations and uncertainty, Joker 2 is still going ahead with Joaquin Phoenix returning to the role of Arthur Fleck. But that’s to be expected – after all, with 11 Academy Award nominations and a box office haul of over $1 billion, a sequel was inevitable.

What will happen to the rest of the DCEU remains to be seen. Want to know more about the Warner Bros. remake? Discovery? We break down exactly what happened to Batgirl and take a look at the other DC heroes facing the axe.
