DC's Peter Safran Says 'Batgirl' Movie Was 'Not Releasable'

DC Studios co-CEO Peter Safran is opening up about the cancelation of the Batgirl movie.

Leslie Grace was set to take on the mantel, with the movie being scrapped in the post-production stage, after wrapping filming.

With Peter and his co-CEO James Gunn announcing their plans for the upcoming DC Universe, they were asked about Batgirl, and he shared his thoughts on the movie, which was not yet completed.

Here’s what he said…

“I saw the movie,” he told press, via Deadline. “There are a lot of incredibly talented people in front of and behind the camera in that film, but that was not releasable. It happens sometimes.”

Peter added, “I think (Warner Discovery CEO David) Zaslav and the team made a bold and courageous decision to cancel it, because it would have hurt DC and those people involved.”

Although the movie was scrapped, directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah revealed that they would work with Warner Bros Discovery again, but on one condition – they’re project actually gets released.

Peter reveals that he and James actually spoke to the directing duo last week, and the DC heads would ” love to be in business with all of them.”

He even added that they’re already “back in business” with Christina Hodson, who wrote the Batgirl script.

Could Batgirl still appear in the DCU?

“Batgirl is inevitably a character we’ll include in our story,” Peter said, although it’s unclear if Leslie would portray her.

Going into the new year a few weeks ago, Leslie shared a lot of BTS videos and photos from her time filming Batgirl.
