Batgirl was the first victim of a cataclysm. The premiere of the film of the superheroine of DC in hbo max was abruptly canceled despite the fact that post-production was almost complete, leaving his entire team hanging: from the protagonist Leslie Grace to the directors Adil El Arbi Y bilall fallah or the composer of the soundtrack Natalie Hoult.The forceful decision was a consequence of the recent union of Warner Bros Discovery and the need to clean up company accounts. Its new managers, with the CEO David Zaslav in the lead, they considered it more pertinent to list Batgirl as a loss to be written off by recovering taxes than to even show her to the public. Although his was the most striking case, being condemned to be an almost unreleased film, it was not the only one. This amortization strategy will also affect many other productions of recent years destined for streaming and promoted by the previous owners of the company. . If newcomers feel that the numbers for those titles don’t make up for what could be recovered by removing them from HBO Max, they are willing to make them disappear. As much as that puts Warner Bros. Discovery up against countless creative talents who have been outraged to see their years of work disappear, especially in the case of animation auteurs like Owen Dennis (The infinite train) or Julia Pott, whose Magic Camp will remain with the third season unreleased despite being 100% completed.
