Batgirl Directors Angered By The Film's Sudden Cancellation
The directors behind the canceled Batgirl movie Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah have announced they're suing DC and it's parent company Warner Bros, after the studio abruptly pulled the plug on the film due to poor test screenings in the US and UK.
In a statement on Instagram, the two wrote: "We are saddened and shocked by the news, we still cannot believe it.
It had been our dream to make the movie with Michael Keaton, now that work has all been for nothing.
We cannot get that time back, so we've decided to sue DC and Warner Bros for violating our contract".
At the time of the announcement by Warner Bros that Batgirl would be scrapped, El Arbi was getting married in Morocco with Suicide Squad star Will Smith as Best Man and the guest of honour.
The film was also supposed to restart the carrier of 90s action hero Brendan Fraser, who was due to play as the obscure villain Firefly to combat Leslie Grace's Batgirl.
They were even able to poach Jonah J. Jameson from Marvel's Spiderman franchise, with J.K. Simmons playing Commissioner Gordon.
It's Glasgow shooting location was supposed to bring revenue to the Scottish city, but with the film now being trashed has left city officials and the SNP disappointed.
Batman 1989 star Michael Keaton was due to reprise his roll as the Caped Crusader in the film, with him calling the scraped film: "A wasted opportunity to continue the story laid out in my Batman films directed by Tim Burton".
