Leslie Grace says she would be open to returning as Batgirl for DC despite Warner Bros. unceremoniously cancelling the Batgirl movie when it was nearly finished.
Amid corporate changes and cost-cutting at Warner Bros, the studio made the unprecedented decision to entirely scrap Batgirl even though $90 million had already been spent on the production.
Discovery CEO David Zaslav later explained that the studio ultimately did not "believe" the movie would succeed after seeing an initial cut.
Grace was naturally disappointed at the news, especially since she was not informed personally before reports started to circulate.
But, it appears she hasn't totally burned bridges with DC and the studio.
"I mean, why not? Why not? Who knows what the future holds?" she said in a conversation with Yahoo.
"I have moved forward. I'm working on a lot of exciting things that feel really aligned with the path that I'm looking forward to just enjoying and building. And I'm very grateful to have had the experience of Batgirl and have met the people that I've met from that experience, and to have received the support that I, in some cases, didn't even know was there after the news of it not coming out."
Batgirl would have seen Michael Keaton's return as Bruce Wayne (which will now happen in The Flash) as well as Brendan Fraser playing Firefly.
Could Batgirl appear alongside Robert Pattinson in The Batman?
The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne, was a critical and commercial success for DC. The Batman: Part II has already been confirmed, and speculation has naturally gathered as to whether we could see Grace appear in the movie as Batgirl.
The actress says she would be up for that, but does not know DC's plans.
"We’ve definitely had conversations about Batgirl’s future and how Batgirl can make a resurgence," she explained.
"I think fans are looking forward to seeing that. We’ll just see where that takes us; I can’t say one way or the other if that is a reality at this point. I can’t speak too much about a future for Bat- girl or guarantee anything. The last thing that I would want to do is give folks any kind of inkling of something that I have not much control over — as we’ve learned."
