The Director of Batgirl Talks About Trying to Resurrect the Movie:

Bilall Fallah, the other co-director of Batgirl, describes his futile attempts to record footage from the movie on his phone after it was shelved. After Warner Bros. cancelled the DC Extended Universe movie, the co-director of Batgirl, Bilall Fallah, recently talked about his futile attempt to preserve the project. During an interview with SKRIPT, Fallah recalled his futile attempts to capture video from the cancelled HBO Max exclusive. “No, we don’t have anything from the movie,” he replied. “I received a call from [co-director] Adil [El Arbi], who instructed me to “Go ahead! Take pictures of everything with your phone! The server was visited by me. Everything was gone. We were like, “Fucking shit!” Even the scenes with Batman in them were not retained.”

Sent shockwaves from Warner Bros:

Even though the movie had already been shot and was halfway into post-production, Warner Bros. shocked the industry by abruptly cancelling Batgirl in August 2022. Warner Bros.’ official position is that it shelved the project because it didn’t fit with the studio’s new 10-year strategy for the DCEU, despite the fact that several reasons for its cancellation were given in the media. Following this, El Arbi and Fallah responded jointly on Instagram, explaining how “saddened and surprised” they were by the news and lamenting the fact that fans will never get to see the full movie.

The director team also gave gratitude to Batgirl’s cast and crew, saying that even though it was only a temporary affiliation with the DCEU, it was still “a privilege and an honour.” Should the studio ever change its mind, the directors did emphasise that the movie is still in a very incomplete form with no visual effects in place and additional shots needed. To make it look acceptable, considerable effort would be required.

Online Pictures from the Cancelled Batgirl Film:

Photos from the set are still appearing online, even though El Arbi and Fallah were unable to record any Batgirl film before Warner Bros. yanked it down. In a recent behind-the-scenes photo posted by El Arbi, the co-director is seen standing between Leslie Grace, who plays Batgirl, and Michael Keaton, who plays Batman, as they wait between takes while filming at night. The most anticipated feature of Batgirl was undoubtedly Keaton’s return as the Dark Knight, but fans will now have to wait until The Flash hits theatres in 2023 to see the actor don the recognisable cape and cowl once more. Should the studio ever change its mind, the directors did emphasise that the movie is still in a very incomplete form with no visual effects in place and additional shots needed. To make it look acceptable, considerable effort would be required.

Leslie Grace shared two pictures of the “battle damage” makeup she wore for the duration of the Batgirl shoot at about the same time. In the first photo, the star is dressed in her comics-accurate purple and yellow Batsuit; in the second, she is wearing an all-black garment without any logos. The distinctly different fake blood splatters on Grace’s face from image to image corroborate the hypothesis that the two pictures were taken while filming two different scenarios. Grace also uploaded an image that had previously been shared by her on-screen partner Jacob Scipio and shows the moment Batgirl and the criminal Anthony Bressi get trapped in the blast’s path.
