Fan-Made ‘Batgirl’ Trailer Stars Jenna Ortega in Iconic Role

Fan Made Batgirl Trailer Stars Jenna Ortega in Iconic Role

A trailer made by fans for a Batgirl movie with Jenna Ortega has got more than 1.03 million views in less than five days. It’s made by KH Studio and uses different effects, sounds, AI, and movie stuff. But it’s just for fun and doesn’t mean Ortega is really doing anything with DC. Still, people might keep talking about Ortega joining DC because of how many people watched the trailer.

We’re not sure if there are any plans for Batgirl in Gunn’s DCU, even though the trailer shows DCEU characters.

When James Gunn and Peter Safran took over as leaders of DC Studios last year, big changes were expected. Shortly after, the studio officially announced the end of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and introduced a new cinematic universe called DCU, serving as a soft reboot. This shift resulted in the cancellation of planned sequels like ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Wonder Woman 3,’ as well as Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam project. But it wasn’t just future movies affected by the leadership change at DC Studios.

The previous leadership had plans to expand DCEU content on streaming platforms, leading to the announcement of projects like ‘Batgirl’ and ‘Blue Beetle.’ However, ‘Blue Beetle’ transitioned to a theatrical release, and ‘Batgirl,’ despite being in post-production, was ultimately scrapped.

Before its cancellation, ‘Batgirl’ was set to feature Leslie Grace in the lead role, with J.K. Simmons reprising his role as James Gordon from the DCEU, and Brendan Fraser cast as the villain, Firefly.

With a budget of approximately $90 million, Warner Bros. and DC Studios provided some explanations for the cancellation, but the true reasons behind this decision may never be fully disclosed.
