Things are not good at Warner after the sudden cancellation of batgirl. According to information from The Hollywood Reporter, the directors of said feature film were not the only ones who were totally stunned by the event; also a high command of DC. We refer to Walter Hamada, who still serves as the head of DC Films.
As incredible – and ridiculous – as it may seem, Hamada also did not know that batgirl would pass to a better life even though the project was under his supervision. Worst of all, he apparently found out about the cancellation from the report of new york postwhich was the medium that advanced the news before the official statement from Warner.
Evidently, the manager is upset for what happened, because they skipped their line of command by not being consulted previously. In addition, he is concerned about all those people who have been affected by the cancellation of batgirl. That is, the members of the production, since more than one has been left without a job. Now he must face a decision that he did not make.
In the face of such disrespect, Hamada was about to resign. However, Warner convinced him to continue performing his functions until at least October 21, thus guaranteeing that someone manages the premiere of Black Adam. After that date, he will most likely leave the ranks of DC.
Among your achievements you can boast, for example, having signed James Gunn to lead the suicide squad Y peacemaker, which are two of the few productions that managed to stand out in critics. The first, however, fell short at the box office. It also made possible the filming of joker Y batmansame that showed that DC can still succeed on the big screen.
batgirlvictim of DC restructuring
Obviously, you don’t have to rack your brain to understand that the order to cancel batgirl came from above. Just yesterday we told you that DC will undertake a restructuring process in the film production strategy; even drawing inspiration from the Marvel model. The above due to the multiple failures that have affected the image of DC in the most recent era. Not only have they taken into account the fiascoes at the box office, but also the negative opinions of specialized critics and the general audience.
From now on, all DC movies will be supervised by a team specifically dedicated to it. Secondly, set new quality standards. The latter, in addition to having the objective of improving the image of the comic book house, intend to ensure that future films are economically sustainable. Yes, Warner is tired of not making enough money with their superhero productions.
Of course, batgirl did not adapt to the new strategy. new york post said that the Warner managers considered it so bad that neither the reshoots they could save her.
