Batgirl Cancellation Makes ZERO CENT$, Here’s Why

IGN published this video item, entitled “Batgirl Cancellation Makes ZERO CENT$, Here’s Why” – below is their description.

The Batgirl Cancellation recently took everybody by surprise. The Leslie Grace lead project for HBO Max which would’ve brought Michael Keaton back as Bruce Wayne and Batman was reportedly almost done with an already-spent budget of 90 million dollars. Which of course begs the question, why NOT just finish and release it? With a variety of reasons offered by new Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav, we decided to dig into the financial implications of the decision. What we found though, really doesn’t make cent$.

Could walking away from an almost finished movie have actually saved WBD money? Are the tax incentives that juicy? Could Warner Brothers and HBO Max have recouped the production money somewhere else? What would the economics of releasing the movie in theaters look like versus the realities of a potential economic recession out here in the real world. We pulled on all of those threads trying to make sense out of the dollars and cents of it all.
