In the wake of Warner Bros. Discovery abruptly pulling the plug on the nearly complete, Leslie Grace-starring Batgirl movie, a spokesperson for Warner Bros. Pictures confirms for TVLine that the Black Canary standalone movie that was first announced a year ago remains in development at the streamer.
“We’re not going to launch your movie until it’s ready,” Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav explained following an Aug. 4 earnings call.
Birds of Prey‘s bat-swinging girl is still planning to step up to the plate for HBO Max.
No further details on Black Canary, including its current timetable, are available at this time.
