On the back of Warner Bros. deciding to kill off the near-complete “Batgirl” movie, canceling the film’s planned theater release and deciding not to release it to HBO Max either, speculation is now turning to other planned DC films and whether they are also set to be given the chop.
RollingStone.com claims that their sources are of the opinion that the planned “Supergirl” movie starring Sashe Calle will not go ahead.
The report reads: Now, the prospect of other DC films being squashed looms. Insiders say Supergirl, which is in development, is not likely to move forward. Sasha Calle, who plays the caped superheroine, is introduced in the upcoming The Flash. Supergirl was going to spin off of the Miller-led tentpole.
This further confirms that Warner Bros. is distancing itself from Zack Snyder’s vision for the DC Universe, with the “Batgirl” film’s cast including J.K. Simmons, who was set to reprise his role of Commissioner Gordon.
What it means for “The Flash” and Calle’s future as Supergirl remains unknown at this point in time.
