1. Leslie Grace speaks out about shock 'Batgirl' cancellation

DC's would-be Batgirl is showing grace after Warner Bros. Discovery clipped her wings. Leslie Grace, who played the title character in a nearly completed Batgirl movie we'll never see, has spoken out about the film's shock cancellation. "I feel blessed to have worked among absolute greats and forged relationships for a lifetime in the process," she wrote on Instagram, thanking Batgirl fans "for the love and belief" and for "allowing me to take on the cape and become, as Babs said best, 'my own damn hero!'" Grace also shared a now-heartbreaking video showing her excitedly putting on the costume. Just weeks ago, she had posted a celebratory photo of herself with Supergirl actress Sasha Calle, whose movie is also reportedly unlikely to happen in the wake of the WarnerMedia-Discovery merger. Meanwhile, Deadline reported that canceling Batgirl will only save the company around $20 million "at the most," or around three times less than the cost of the Snyder Cut. Make it make sense!
