Walter Hamada, who is the current head of DC Films, almost left Warner Bros. due to the Batgirl cancellation and may still be on his way out from the studio.

Since the merger was completed for Warner Bros. Discovery, there have been a lot of shake-ups going on behind the scenes. Similar to when AT&T acquired Warner Bros., hundreds of people have been laid off, and many divisions had massive restructuring, which is now happening again with the new version of the company.

However, one move that no one saw coming from Warner Bros. Discovery was the decision to cancel the Batgirl movie suddenly. Starring Leslie Grace as Barbara Gordon, Batgirl was set to be an HBO Max original that had finished filming in late March.

Despite being in post-production stages, with a supposed release for late 2022, Warner Bros. Discovery decided to scrap the film due to financial concerns, not fitting in with their overall strategy, and reported negative test screenings.
