Leslie Grace releases more BTS footage from junked 'Batgirl' - Los Angeles News

Los Angeles, Sep 25 (IANS) The DC Comics film 'Batgirl' has been cancelled but that doesn't stop the film's actress Leslie Grace from sharing more behind-the-scenes (BTS) footage of the production, nearly two months after the project was axed by Warner Bros. Discovery, reports Variety.

Leslie Grace releases more BTS footage from junked 'Batgirl' - Los Angeles News

"I couldn't resist," Grace wrote in the description for a TikTok that she posted on Saturday morning. Set to "Evergreen" by Omar Apollo, the video contains footage of Grace through various stages of production, recording herself with a Gotham hero's signature smokey eye makeup, rehearsing complex fight choreography and taking a wire-assisted tumble in front of a blue screen.

According to Variety, the video concludes with Grace, grinning, riding a mechanical rocking horse in the full purple Batgirl costume, complete with goggles and a leather jacket.

In early August, Warner Bros. Discovery officially confirmed that it would not release 'Batgirl', despite the production having completed principal photography and a significant fraction of its post-production timeline.

Variety adds the film, which was developed for an HBO Max release, would not be distributed theatrically or shopped around to other studios, allowing the company to take a tax write-off on the project -- a decision that was internally believed to make more financial sense than a commercial release.

"Querida familia! On the heels of the recent news about our movie 'Batgirl', I am proud of the love, hard work and intention all of our incredible cast and tireless crew put into this film over 7 months in Scotland," Grace wrote on Instagram in her first public reaction to the news of the film's cancellation.

Her message was accompanied by more behind-the-scenes footage from the film. "I feel blessed to have worked among absolute greats and forged relationships for a lifetime in the process! To every Batgirl fan -- THANK YOU for the love and belief, allowing me to take on the cape and become, as Babs said best, 'my own damn hero!' Batgirl for life (sic)."
