And Leslie Grace has released a statement following the news that Warner Brothers have shelved the upcoming Batgirl movie. The actress, who was due to star in the leading role, said she was proud  of the love, hard work and intention all of the cast and crew put into the film over a seven month period, adding she felt blessed to have been a part of the project. Leslie's statement comes shortly after Warner Bros announced that it would not be releasing the 90 million dollar movie in theatres or on its HBO Max streamer, despite the film being in post-production. The specific reason has not been confirmed by the studio, but it's thought that the film company intended to fulfil a desire for blockbuster-scale DC movies, which Batgirl was reportedly not.
