Superhero film Batgirl, shot entirely in Glasgow earlier this year, has been scrapped by Warner Bros.

The DC movie, starring Leslie Grace, Michael Keaton, Brendan Fraser and JK Simmons, was scheduled for release in late 2022 but has now been shelved despite filming being complete.

With the film no longer to appear in theatres or on streaming service HBO Max as planned, Glasgow residents, who lined the streets to watch scenes being shot in January, look to now be among the few who will have got a glimpse of the action.

The animated film Scoob! Holiday Haunt was also axed by the studio.

Warner Bros said: “The decision to not release Batgirl reflects our leadership’s strategic shift as it relates to the DC universe and HBO Max.

“Leslie Grace is an incredibly talented actor and this decision is not a reflection of her performance.

“We are incredibly grateful to the filmmakers of Batgirl and Scoob! Holiday Haunt and their respective casts and we hope to collaborate with everyone again in the near future.”

According to The New York Post, the studio decided to shelve the production completely following poor screening tests.

Batgirl was due to focus on Barbara Gordon, played by Grace, the daughter of Gotham police commissioner Jim Gordon.

The cast and crew descended on Glasgow in January, with the Trongate area of the city hosting most of the filming.

Shop fronts were altered, Christmas decorations adorned buildings and Gotham-branded vehicles took to the streets.

Grace, Fraser and Simmons were all spotted in the city filming scenes in a variety of locations.

Glasgow City Council leader Susan Aitken said at the time that, despite disruption to residents, money brought in during the filming would help the pandemic recovery.

She said in January: “A production of this scale will spend in the reign of £1m a day in our city centre in restaurants, hospitality and hotels and shops.

“It’s also really important for the many people who work in the film industry in Scotland.

“And a film like this, you’re looking at a minimum of 250 people a day but up to as many as 1000 people a day that they’re employing on these films so that’s a pipeline of work for a lot of people.

“The timing of it really couldn’t be better for supporting the city’s economic recovery.”
