Bat girl Co-director Adil El Arbi has revealed that two legendary comic book movie filmmakers have grown closer in the wake of the shocking news that Warner Bros. is permanently canceling the DCEU movie’s release. Leslie Grace’s vehicle was ready to go before new studio boss David Zaslav canceled the project as part of his ambitious overhaul of the entire DC franchise.

Fans have been outraged by the announcement on social media, and behind the scenes, El Arbi and co-director Bilall Fallah have also received support from their peers in the industry. The former took to Instagram today to send a shout out to both of them. the suicide squadis James Gunn and Scott Pilgrim vs. the worldEdgar Wright for his “kind words and experience”, which El Arbi noted “means a lot and helps us get through this difficult period.”

Not surprisingly, both Wright and Gunn contacted Adil & Bilall after the Bat girl debacle since, apart from being good people, they can sympathize with what the couple is going through, since they have also experienced the negative side of working within the sphere of high-pressure superheroes. Interestingly, in their cases, the problem was with DC’s rival, Marvel Studios.

Wright infamously worked on Ant Man for years before he eventually parted ways with House of Ideas over creative differences, and was later replaced by Peyton Reed. Gunn, meanwhile, was temporarily removed from guardians of the galaxy vol. 3 after a scandal on social networks. Obviously though, in neither case did they make an entire movie that never saw the light of day. There are not many times that has happened in the history of cinema.

Additionally, El Arbi also revealed that Marvel boss Kevin Feige sent the duo an email, promising them “see you soon,” which could be an indication that while their experience at DC turned sour, the Bat girl the directors could still return to the MCU instead.
