This week, DC fans and the industry alike were shocked when Warner Bros Discovery announced that it had completely scrapped Batgirl, despite the film having spent $90 million or more, having completed its major post-production, and reuniting with Michael Keaton as Batman.
After the news broke, one of the film's directors, Adil El Arbi, revealed that Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige offered his support.
Feige sent an email to him and his co-director Bilall Fallah, who he also directed several episodes of Ms Marvel with, to his Instagram Stories.
"My friends, I needed to get out there and tell you that we're all thinking about you both. Because of the wonderful news about the wedding (congrats!) and the sad news about Batgirl," Feige wrote.
"I'm really proud of you guys and all of the amazing work you do, especially of Ms Marvel of course!"
Arbi disclosed that James Gunn, the director of the Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy, and Edgar Wright of Last Night in Soho, also sent him positive messages of support.
"Your kind words and experience mean a lot to us and help us through this difficult period," he added.
Leslie Grace, who played Batgirl, has also reacted to the news, saying, "I'm proud of the work, dedication, and dedication that all of our amazing cast and crew put into this film over seven months in Scotland."
"I feel blessed to have worked alongside absolute legends and established friendships for a lifetime."
The Batman is now available in US and UK cinemas. The DVD, 4K Blu-ray, and standard Blu-ray versions are also available to purchase.
