batgirl has grabbed the headlines since the controversial decisions of David Zaslav as the new leader of Warner Bros. Discovery, and no wonder. After separating from AT&T and merging with Discovery, Warner’s management has stopped giving priority to streaming (star strategy during the pandemic) based on classic premieres, so that HBO Max workers and artists are falling prey to everything kind of outrages Batgirl, without going any further, has seen its premiere canceled in a sudden way as it was destined for this platform, while some content disappears without prior notice and a whole string of animated productions suffers a fate similar to that of the film by Leslie Grace.This has not been talked about so much, but it is resounding. In a matter of days, projects such as The infinity train, The Fungies either magic camp, the latter when he had finished developing his new season. At the same time, a whole string of titles such as Bye Bye Bunny: A Looney Tunes Musical either The Amazing World of Gumball: The Moviebut perhaps what hurt the fans the most was the fate of Batman: Caped Crusader. It was a very high-profile animated series, due more than anything to the fact that it was Bruce Timm in the middle. Who was, in fact, the creator of the highly acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series from the 90sCaped Crusader It wasn’t exactly a sequel to this one, but it promised to follow in its footsteps to build an adventure that was both visually overwhelming and adult in tone (emphasizing Batman’s detective facet). In addition to Timm, he had JJ Abramsto the prestigious comic book writer ed brubaker Already Matt Reeves, but the tragedy of its cancellation at the hands of Zaslav was soon palliated by a recent report by The Hollywood Reporter. According to him, Caped Crusader could succeed after all thanks to the notable interest that streamers like Netflix, Apple TV + and Hulu have in the project. All of them dispute, these days, the control of Caped Crusader.

The production, in fact, had never been frozen in the expectation that some studio beyond HBO Max wanted to take over it. This is what would end up happening, depending on whether one of the aforementioned headers gets away with it, and Caped Crusader sees the light outside of Warner Bros. streaming. A somewhat bizarre situation considering that DC is part of this major, but the important thing is that it exists, and that it also does so coinciding with an admirable state of health for the Gotham bat. And, as terrible as Batgirl’s fate has been, the universe associated with the character is more alive than ever. While Zaslav enthusiastically faces the sequel to joker (Folie a Deux), Reeves has signed an agreement to continue working on the new continuity introduced by batmana film he directed starring Robert Pattinson. In addition to the inevitable sequel, Reeves will also oversee a spin-off series centered on the Penguin from Colin Farrell.Do you want to be up to date with all the latest movies and series?
