‘Batgirl’ Helmer Thanks 2 Iconic Comic Book Movie Directors for Their Support

Batgirl co-director Adil El Arbi has revealed that two legendary comic book movie filmmakers reached out in the wake of the shocking news that Warner Bros. is permanently cancelling the DCEU film’s release. The Leslie Grace vehicle was all ready to go before new studio chief David Zaslav pulled the plug on the project as part of his ambitious overhaul of the entire DC franchise.
Fans have been up in arms over the announcement on social media, and behind the scenes El Arbi and co-helmer Bilall Fallah have been receiving support from their peers in the industry, too. The former took to Instagram today to send a shout-out to both The Suicide Squad‘s James Gunn and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World‘s Edgar Wright for their “kind words and experience,” which El Arbi noted “mean a lot and help us through this difficult period.”
