It’s being reported that the upcoming Batgirl movie might be released exclusively in cinemas rather than being released on HBO Max only.
Originally, the plan over at Warner Bros. Pictures and HBO Max was to release the movie exclusively on the streaming platform.
However, according to a new report from Puck, Warner Bros might now be considering releasing the movie exclusively in cinemas.
This is in line with what we’ve been hearing and makes sense given that it was revealed recently that the Blue Beetle movie will also be released in cinemas.
Now, after the recent merger with Discovery, it seems as though the studio has been rethinking its release strategy for their upcoming movies.
Originally, before Jason Kilar left HBO Max, the idea was to make superhero movies exclusively for release on the streaming service.
Well, now that he’s gone and that Warner Bros is rethinking their release strategy, it sounds as though these superhero movies might be released in cinemas.
The two movies that Warners had been making exclusively for streaming were the Batgirl and Blue Beetle movies.
Sounds like the Batgirl movie could be released in cinemas
I always thought it was strange that a Batgirl movie would be released solely on HBO Max.
Also, given that the Blue Beetle movie was going to feature the first Latino superhero, it was odd that Warners had opted to release this movie on a streaming platform and not in cinemas.
Also, the Batgirl movie is going to see Michael Keaton’s Batman, and his version of the Dark Knight should not be deprived of the big screen.
Now, it’s still not officially confirmed that the Batgirl movie will be released exclusively in cinemas yet.
However, I’m pretty sure Warners will opt for a theatre release for the movie, especially given all this news about Netflix’s recent plunge on Wall Street.
