After a disappointing axe, Edgar Wright, James Gunn, and Kevin Feige support Batgirl director Kevin  ...

Warner Bros. Discovery enraged the film world this week when it announced that it would no longer release the upcoming Batgirl film from Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah in theaters or on a streaming site. This is unprecedented, especially when you consider that the cast and crew were unaware of the move prior to it.

Every grey cloud has a silver lining, according to Adil El Arbi, who recently took to Instagram to announce that some of the most well-known actors in comic book filmmaking have stepped up to the challenge.

He thanked everyone for sending him messages of support throughout the world. Directors Edgar Wright and James Gunn, your sincere comments and experiences enrich our lives.

While Gunn and Wright's messages to the directors were not disclosed publicly, the two men know a thing or two about having superhero movies ripped out from under them. Wright's interest in the character is perhaps what prompted Marvel to develop the film in the first place, but his personal failure forced him to withdraw from the project at the last minute. Many close observers are skeptical of the notion that the finished product has many of his fingerprints.

After the internet dug up some of his decades-old messages that contained some off-color humor, Gunn was re-elected as the franchise's new director. He's still uniquely qualified to understand the situation of Arbi and Fallahs.

Arbi also disclosed that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige wrote an email to them via his Instagram page.

Feige wrote that we are all thinking about you and Batgirl because of the wonderful news about the wedding (congrats!) and the dismal news about Ms. Marvel. We are all very proud of you and your incredible work!
