It's only been like 2 days and everyone's already stopped talking about Batgirl. It shows that Gigachad Zaslav made the right choice cancelling this shit. The audience it was made for is tiny and they have no money.

>people stopped talking about a cancelled movie they'll never see
So glad this got tossed in the shitter. DC and WB should have known after that ridiculous Birds of Prey movie.
This movie was being made by the exact same brain trust as Harley Quinn / Birds of Prey and it was going to end the exact same way. I saw all the trailers for that movie and I didn't even realize the Birds of Prey were in it. The only one I recognized on one of the posters was Huntress because she was holding a crossbow.
Well, i'm not surprised to hear that...fucking Rosie Perez lmfao
I would have never watched it but the memes from it could have been good.
Didn't even know it existed before it got cancelled. That's how much people didn't care about this shit
Maybe if her suit had high heels...
Maybe it she was a hot redhead instead of generic black actress playing a redhead #362.
A hot redhead in high heels would be an improvement.
Why do we have to replace things for diversity? Why can't we just add?
that takes effort
Because having two batgirls is redundant, and people will just like the original one and sideline the diverse one. They want to replace so that you have no choice but to accept it.
Create a black character instead of making a new Batgirl?
They tried that with Batwoman on CW. The show was finally put out of its misery.
And they had 2 different black, lesbian bat girls, too.
Batwoman isn't a new character
I'm sure they've tried pitching "new" diverse characters. They're probably just so shit that no studio would greenlight a movie or even a comic about that character.
they already have many black characters, they are just intent on wokeifying their characters, it shows they don't actually have faith in their 'diverse' characters that's why they need to switch up some of the main ones because people will still watch a bat family/kryptonian film just for the connection.
Batgirl was originally introduced as Batwoman's sidekick and they were both put in the Batman comics to prove that Batman and Robin weren't gay, in response to the Seduction of the Innocent book. The first Batgirl had absolutely nothing to do with the character we know today other than sharing the same name. She looked just as ridiculous as Batwoman.
what relevance does this have to what i said at all
>Seduction of the Innocent
Literally everything that guy said turned out to be right eventually.
It's because a bunch of groomers moved into the industry and went "HUR HUR let's do everything that Seduction of the Innocent accused the comics industry of doing to troll mom and dad!"
Don't call them groomers call them garden gnomes
Also: comic book characters are the epitome of "let's make a new character so people who don't care about that character care about this new character, without losing the fans of that character "
Adding diversity is hard in entertainment, building things from scratch is hard anywhere.
Wokies and feminists know it perfectly so they simply replace established(mostly White) characters with diverse/homosexual versions.
If you criticize or just show unhapiness you're racist/sexist/homophobe/bigot.
Creating new good things is difficult, butchering existing things is easier.
Seriously, somebody in Hollywood really hated redheads in particular it's weird.
Dyslexia is a common disease in Hollywood
the garden gnome fears the ginger
Her suit looks like a halloween costume
>IT'S SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE CHEAP COSPLAY!
And if she was a cute ginger
And he she wasn't an ugly moron
Nintendo just randomly decided Samus could use some heels and are based for it.
NOOOO! YOU CAN'T TAKE MY COOMINO AWAY! I WAS GOING TO JERK OFF FOR DAYS OVER HER FAT, INCLUSIVE LIPS! NOOOO!
It just shows that there is too much content and the streaming platform bubble (a ruinous business that's hemorrhaging money) will collapse sooner than later
Zaslav is hedging bets. Unscripted TV is cheap and easily mass produced for streaming audiences. Expensive scripted productions are a better fit for movie theaters, and as we now have seen, even in the face of a global pandemic (or rather, the artificial restrictions the government put in place during the pandemic), movie theaters bounced right back and they're not going anywhere.
Theatrical movies have been a profitable business model for over a century, whereas with streaming almost nobody even knows how to make a profit from it yet and it's all speculative investment.
According to copelords, the corps actually want their movies to tank at the box office so that they can release it to their streaming service faster.
based zaslav should announce new Batgirl movie with white actress, lol
The twitter tears would quench my thirst for eons.
It would be Gal Gadot tier miscast. Even they aren't woke they are still retarded hollygarden gnomes
Ok. Now he needs to take it to the next level and cancel The Batman 2. The first one wasn't even a movie, it was just propaganda.
I didn't think it was bad but at the same time it felt too long and I don't really have any desire to revisit this version of Batman or Gotham City. It was an okay semi-adaptation of The Long Halloween, but this Batman is the absolute weakest version in the history of the franchise with the worst gadgets and technology. I can't believe there are some people who actually want this version of Batman to replace Ben Affleck in the DCEU, he'd be an absolute joke in any kind of shared superhero universe even if they completely rebooted the DCEU.
Sure the Batman 2 isn’t happening lol. Pattison has no desire to continue with capeshit
one day I'm gonna just reply to posts with some made up bullshit like you, seems fun. He's literally said the complete opposite
Fanboys didn't give a shit either, they shrugged it off and reacted indifferently to it being shelved
Did anyone see it? Prescreen revue?Why was it so bad?
Something about it being like a really shitty, low-budget CW show and apparently the movie kills off Batman and makes Batgirl be his successor or some shit.
I guess future is NOT female
So WB gave Christina Hodson Birds of Prey, The Flash and Batgirl to write. We know at least 2 of them are shit.
I can just about guarantee you that Zaslav is looking at The Flash from every angle trying to figure out how he can either shitcan it or re-film most of it with a new actor and changes to the story. The original purpose of the movie sounds like it's fundamentally incompatible with Zaslav's 10 year plan for DC on film because it was from a different administration.
Flash was basically going to be use to retcon out all the characters (and actors) that Warner / DC didn't want to use anymore (at the time), and Zaslav is basically like "what the fuck are you people thinking? We have Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck as the two most popular superheroes of all time and you're gonna flush it all down the toilet because reasons." I think the reset that The Flash was pushing for is not appealing to Zaslav at all, and neither were any of the new replacement characters and actors it was supposed to usher in.
The DCEU needs some serious rehab. It will probably not be a revival of the Snyderverse as it was originally planned, but I think Zaslav wants to bring back most of the original actors. Ezra Miller is definitely out after Flash's solo movie whether or not the movie comes out in its current form. Ray Fisher is probably out as Cyborg too unless for whatever reason Zaslav thinks it'll be a good PR move to shut some criticism of the studio to put him in another movie. Amber Heard is rumored to be getting replaced with Emelia Clarke in Aquaman 2's reshoots, but we don't know yet. If they keep her it will be her last movie in the DCEU. Momoa and Gal Gadot are safe, and it sounds like Zaslav is playing for a Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck comeback, and the latter two were supposed to be permanently retconned out of the DCEU by The Flash, so hopefully they're changing course because I think most people at this point would love to see them return in a movie where they aren't trying to kill each other.
>The original purpose of the movie sounds like it's fundamentally incompatible with Zaslav's 10 year plan for DC
This is exactly why I am surprised The Flash is still coming out. They may have sunk so much money into it that they are just going to try to re-edit and do reshoots and make it a standalone flick that does not affect the rest of the universe much (i dont know the full storyline or if that is even possible)
It's easier to do than you think because the current cut screening already has Batfleck still alive, they just have to fix the Supergirl/Superman issue which can be done by like deleting one scene.
It can still be used as a soft reboot and, the studio likely hopes, a way to convince audiences to give them a second chance.
You can't create a solid 10 year plan based off a soft reboot using a movie that was quickly and crudely retrofitted to change its entire story and purpose.
You can if it's not a reboot at all but just a standalone
Because if Keaton doesn't take the mantle and we know Superman is alive in the main timeline it is no longer a reboot at all
Not a real one. But they're hoping gives it a second chance.
Exactly. Flash is going to end up having to be reworked into a standalone film. The only thing it might set up for in the broader DCEU is that Ezra Miller's replacement might get introduced at the end.
Just make 3 scenes
>one with Wally having an accident
>Barry enter in the speedforce(just use an extra)
>the ending with Wally becoming the flash
tbh I am basically expecting this right now, unless things get even worse with Miller. It either ends with Wally replacing Barry, or it ends with Barry getting replaced by an alternate universe Barry played by a different actor.
He speaks highly of it and loves the movie and it's gonna just be made better by adding in more Affleck and Cavill.
Anything is possible to re-write with enough reshoots, but the question is how much is enough and if Miller is still in the picture. He might be in the movie and then by the end of it he gets replaced Doctor Who style with an alternate universe Flash played by a different actor, or a different version of The Flash like Wally West.
Clearly there is something the studio is excited about with the movie or they would have just canceled it outright, but they are definitely not done with it. The thing is, the Ezra Miller situation is only going to get worse by the time the movie comes out next year. They either should have released it this summer before the drama comes to a head, or they should recast. I am pretty sure he's either going to be in prison or dead by the time the movie comes out.
You realize hes in a rehab/mental hospital and has been since like July right?
Nothing can get worse so long as he's there and WB plans on him staying until like October because he's so f'd up with trauma
I thought he was avoiding an arrest warrant?
The only way I can see him staying on as Flash would be if he has a finding Jesus moment between now and next year, which seems very unlikely because he's gnomish. If he was like, literally going to church with Chris Pratt then maybe I could see his reputation being on the mend but that's basically saying "when pigs fly." I'm not even speaking as a moral hypothetical, I'm talking strictly from a PR perspective and I don't think there's a snowball's chance in hell of that crazy train turning around.
If there was an arrest warrant for him out there you'd have a statement from someone in law enforcement saying as much and such a statement doesn't exist
Well there is, because like I said he's been here since July: https://berkshiremountaindetox.com
I think they will just pay people off and spin it and make Ezra out to be a Hollywood bad 'boy', a counter culture icon who zoomies think is a real rebel
The stage has already been set to declare him as mentally ill
In the latest schizo tabloid article they have multiple people saying how he is and how WB knows
its evil flash who is making flash look bad guys...
Anyone who think the flash will be reshot with a new actor or scrapped is fucking retarded, including (You)
You are literally talking about it gay
threadly reminder its a conjob by WB, half the cancelled properties will be returning due to "fan demand" this is one of them
Yeah, no. Zaslav is a serious businessman and he doesn't give a fuck about Twitter's feelings. Disney is going to be begging him to be their next CEO in 10 years.
It's easy to just ax shit. We'll see if he can actually hire non-shit people to make good movies.
All of his board of directors are white men and Twitter thinks this is basically a hate crime against them.
Doesn't mean that they are competent or will do what you want.
>ax DCEU, 90 day fiance UNIVERSE is our new main focus.
He does not have time or patience for diversity hires and that is already promising.
This means absolutely nothing you culture war retard.
The only people who cared were Twitter bots and leftists masquerading as real people.
>N-nooo it's the marketing trick, now everyone will want to see bat-girl now that studio said it's cancellede
Why are redditors like this?
this whole situation reminds me of when game companies used to trash entire completed video games because of some stupid logistics problem. examples:
sam & max sequel (lucasarts version) - this game was about a month away from being done, only needing voice-overs and bug stomping for completion. it was so complete that the gaming magazines were beginning to run previews and interviews for it (reminder that stuff had to be done months in advance due to scheduling). shitcanned bc lucasarts thought adventure gaming was dead.
ultima 8: the lost vale - this add-on to ultima 8 was done. gold master. complete. the box design had been approved. all that was left was to give the order to mass produce and send it on it's way. shitcanned because ultima 8 did not sell well.
timeshift (original version) - they were down to bug-stomping and level-tweaking (even voice overs with the actors were completed) when the game changed publishers and the new publisher decided to revamp everything.
penn & teller video game - game was complete but got shitcanned bc the publisher went bankrupt before the game could ship. the roms eventually leaked.
f-stop - not as complete as above examples but it was the original sequel to portal. the game was 70% complete (level designs done, story done, mostly playable all the way through) when playtesters complained that there were no portals. ergo, the sequel was scrapped and what could be salvaged would be for what would eventually become portal 2.
Back in the day, the cost to produce and distribute cartridges was the biggest cost of the entire production. If you really thought your almost finished game was going to flop, then you would think very hard about sinking in millions of dollars more to replicate it and ship it
Zaslav is literally saving DC right now
He is trying to. Let's wait to see what his 10 year plan is. If it includes Affleck, Cavill and Gadot, it is on shaky ground. If it includes Snyder, it is DOA
You’re a literal retard. Snyder was holding the fucking thing together now it’s all over the place. Remember that while they weren’t perfect, studio medalling was to blame for dceu’s shaky start
Man of Steel was anemic and boring, BvS was a catastrophe, JL was even worse. Snyder created a world only a few incel shutins were interested in, the wasted potential was huge
>CAPESHIT IS A PLAGUE AND NEEDS TO BE ERRADICATED
>WTF SNYDER WHY ARENT YOUR MOVIES MORE CAPESHITTING?
you people are never happy
There have been a few good superhero movies, Superman 1 and 2, Spiderman 1 and 2, can't think of too many more. I'd love to see a good capeshit movie but in the last 10 years or so, capeshit HAS been a plague and there hasnt been anything very good at all, its all generic cookie cutter shit and is sucking in all the money and resources from Hollywood
Yet it had its niche?? Marvel covered the upbeat quippy shit. Dc didn’t need to copy them
Shazam, and Aquaman were wildly successful for DC and they were upbeat quippy shit.
you tell him Sir!
Yvonne Craig is the only Batgirl I care about.
This is the hard DC reboot I've been waiting for
Probably still better then the cancelled Batgirl.
Because nobody actually cared or wanted this movie
I did, so your argument is invalid
I said it before and I will say it again. Ryan Reynolds was miscast as the Green Lantern. As Deadpool. He should have always been the Flash. Here is their chance to fix things
The Gay Flash is canon now. Anyone not acting like a gay caricature will be seen as fake
Ryan Reynolds is perfect as Deadpool. The problem is that Deadpool is a shitty character.
I'M MAKING THE MOTHER OF ALL OMELETS HERE JACK. CAN'T FRET OVER EVERY EGG.
Dude is on a warpath.
I think this could be it. What usually happens is creativy is populated by woke they/them types and the bean counter guys just sort of go along with whatever they say will generate views, oblivious to the fact that they are using IP to shoehorn in their worldview, which drives people away.
Then this guy just looked at all the numbers and realized no one watches this shit so axed it all.
Actual patron saint. Put his face on Mt Rushmore
Cancel it all Zaslav
So Kevin Smith revealed that Berlanti had a project called Strange Adventures that was 16-20 million per episode and it got cancelled. His episode was a Jimmy Olsen and Bizarro one.
That's because no one cares outside of twitter trannies who have probably already moved on to the next outrage.
And that's what David Zaslav understands that Disney doesn't. Twitter chuds will evacuate their bowels in a fit of rage when you do something they don't like, but all you have to do is wait and then they'll find out about something else that makes them even angrier at someone else.
