We are saddened and shocked by the news. We still can’t believe it. As directors, it is paramount that our work is shown to the public, and although the film is far from finished, we would have liked fans around the world to have had the opportunity to see and judge the film finalized by themselves. Maybe one day insha’Allah.
Our incredible cast and crew have done an amazing job and worked so hard to bring Batgirl to life. We are forever grateful to have been part of this team. It was a dream to collaborate with such fantastic actors as Michael Keaton, JK Simmons, Brendan Fraser, Jacob Scipio, Corey Johnson, Rebecca Front and especially the great Leslie Grace, who portrayed Batgirl with such passion, dedication and passion. ‘humanity. Either way, as huge Batman fans since we were kids, it’s been a privilege and an honor to have been a part of the DCEU, even for a short while. Batgirl For Life.

On the heels of recent news regarding our film Batgirl, I’m proud of the love, hard work and intention that all of our amazing actors and tireless crew put into this film over 7 months in Scotland. I feel lucky to have worked with big names and to have formed relationships for life! To all Batgirl fans – THANK YOU for your love and for believing in me, which allowed me to put on the cape and become, as Babs (Barbara Gordon) puts it, “my own fucking heroine”.
