‘Batgirl’ Star Leslie Grace Speaks Out

Leslie Grace, the actress supposed to play Barbara Gordon/Batgirl in the upcoming DC Comics picture “Batgirl,” is now speaking up for the first time

The star of “In the Heights” took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a series of movie images and footage from the set of the nearly $100 million superhero film.

She went on to describe how she was very “fortunate” to be working with such a fantastic team on the project, and she concluded by addressing a special letter

"To every Batgirl supporter out there: THANK YOU for the love and belief; you made it possible for me to don the cape and become, as Babs put it so eloquently: "my damn hero!" #Batgirl for life!"

“The decision to not distribute ‘Batgirl’ reflects our leadership’s strategy shift as it pertains to the DC universe and HBO Max,”

Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, the filmmakers of “Batgirl,” have also issued their own statements in response to the film’s cancellation.

The two individuals stated that they were “devastated” and “shocked” by the information and that they “still can’t believe it.”

“As directors, it is critical that our work be shown to audiences,” said the filmmakers, who also directed “Bad Boys for Life,” which is scheduled to be released in 2020.
