After ‘Batgirl’ Was Cancelled Guests Get Heated On Female Superhero Films Being Less Successful |GMB

Good Morning Britain published this video item, entitled “After ‘Batgirl’ Was Cancelled Guests Get Heated On Female Superhero Films Being Less Successful |GMB” – below is their description.

DC Comics film “Batgirl” has been shelved by Warner Bros after receiving poor reviews in test screenings. The film was going to be released on streaming platform HBO Max and reportedly cost up to £82m to make. According to a source, the film did not have the “spectacle that audiences have come to expect” from superhero films. But would they be as cautious if the superhero was a man? Are standards higher for female heroes?

Hanna Ines Flint – Film critic and author of Strong Female Character, says – The idea that female superheroes don’t do well is ridiculous. Whilst Dominique Samuels argues people don’t want films to be politicised.
