BATGIRL Directors Reveal Whether THE FLASH's Delay Means They Will Need To Reshoot Parts Of The Movie

Batgirl directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah have addressed The Flash's recent release date delay, explaining whether that has any sort of impact on when their DC Comics adaptation will debut...

The Flash was supposed to be released in theaters this November, with Batgirl's HBO Max debut reportedly set to take place the following month. A lot has changed since then, of course, with new leadership at Warner Bros. and the Scarlet Speedster's first solo outing pushed into 2023. 

Whether Batgirl gets a theatrical or streaming release, it wouldn't make sense for the movie to come out before The Flash. After all, that blockbuster will bring back Michael Keaton's Batman, and if he's just there in Batgirl with no explanation, a lot of people will no doubt be very confused. So, if Barbara Gordon's return is still slated for December, has that led to reshoots? 

Directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah recently spoke to Insider, with the filmmakers confirming that they don't even know what release date their movie will have. "We don't know when 'Batgirl' is coming out," El Arbi stated before adding, "No one told us nothing about tweaks, just to carry on."

During the same conversation, Falla would "confirm" that "The O.G. Batman is in the movie," though that's hardly news at this point.

Rumour has it Warner Bros. Discovery's new CEO David Zaslav isn't a fan of producing these expensive DC Comics movies for HBO Max, so there's a good chance Batgirl arrives in theaters. When that will be is obviously hard to say, especially as The Flash is now slated for a June 23, 2023 debut.
