The self-induced collapse of the Batgirl movie is not just one of the weirdest entertainment news headlines of 2022, but will probably go down as one of the weirdest moments in Hollywood history. It’s exceedingly rare for a studio to spend a gajillion dollars on a movie and then decide to scrap it 95% of the way through production. It’s rarer still for said studio to make no effort to recoup their investment through a limited release or selling the movie to someone else. Despite reports that Batgirl was halted for being “bad,” there’s no evidence it was a stinker. I mean, no one’s actually seen the thing.
