In the wake of Warner Bros. cancelling the planned streaming release of Batgirl, superhero fans across the Marvel and DC divide have lent their support to the team behind the movie, lamenting the fact that we’ll never get to see Leslie Grace suit up as Barbara Gordon, or even get a glimpse at Brendan Fraser as supervillain Firefly. This doesn’t just apply to the fans, either, as it turns out Marvel chief Kevin Feige sent the Batgirl directors a kind message in the wake of the sad news.
Adil El Arbi, who helmed the DC movie with Bilall Fallah, took to Instagram to share the email he received from Feige. As has previously been revealed, El Arbi found out the Batgirl news while he was celebrating his own wedding. In his note to the filmmaker, Feige congratulates him on his nuptials but also sends his commiserations about the “disappointing” Batgirl update. El Arbi posted the email, along with the caption, “thanks brother Kevin.”
