Honestly, I'm far more interested in what DC's bringing to the table than what the MCU's cooking up.
I can probably tell you why they did it, despite what they told the trades: Ezra Miller. Honestly, that's what most people are going to assume anyway. Miller's bullshit has tainted the entire DCEU. After this, I wouldn't put it past Warner Bros. to cancel The Flash outright, despite it being completely finished, effects and all. The Flash was made for 200 million, but seriously doubt that they're going to release it at this point. How can you when your lead star is a fucking criminal? They said they were committed to releasing the movie into theaters, but I have my doubts.Sinking millions of dollars into a movie that's almost finished and then deciding to scrap it is an EXCELLENT business model!
I'm going to be wearing my sceptical hat for a few months on this one. If we hear nothing else about it and it fades into obscurity, then okay, weird. If this stirs speculation into a frenzy and is eventually released due to 'fan demand' then I'm calling bullshit marketing ploy.
Yeah, I'm getting that vibe, too. If that's the case, it's NOT a good look for Warner Bros. Even if the movie itself is bad, the people that put their hard work into it deserve to have their movie seen at the very least. But I still think that this situation with Ezra Miller and The Flash had something to do with it. More than they're willing to say publicly.I'm going to be wearing my sceptical hat for a few months on this one. If we hear nothing else about it and it fades into obscurity, then okay, weird.

If you ask me, this is all going to end up like the "Snyder Cut" version of the Justice League movie. Their is going to be a giant fan outcry for the Batgirl movie online, and it will finally come out years later, but it's just going to end up as an O.K. movie.Given all the attention and media presence the Batgirl film is getting, I'm actually starting to think it's all marketing and it is still getting released. My thought process might have gotten influenced by witsd.
Will we ever see the "Butthole" version, though?If you ask me, this is all going to end up like the "Snyder Cut" version of the Justice League movie.

This just about sums up what WB is doing right now.

It DOES work when its written well. James Gunn's Suicide Squad movie, for example. But the MCU has a better track record of that. Warner Bros. bungled the DCEU from day 1. I love Man of Steel. I liked Aquaman and the first Wonder Woman movie. Hell, I even enjoyed Justice League, BOTH versions. But the problem has always been the tone. The Snyder-verse was mostly downbeat and off-putting for the average movie-goer. Batman V. Superman ended with the death of Superman for crying out loud. Black Adam's problems were a result of Dwayne Johnson having too much say in the project and a lousy script. The project was in development for 15 fucking years, and THIS was what we got? Honestly, a hard reboot of the DCEU is needed, and that's the direction that Gunn and Safran are headed in. We've got four more movies in the Snyder-verse: Aquaman 2, Blue Beetle, The Flash, and Shazam! Fury of the Gods. Outside of the regular DC universe, we've got the follow-up to The Joker and a sequel to The Batman. I'm interested in what Gunn and Safran have in mind.We have seen that doesn't work
