“Batgirl” Star Leslie Grace Handles Movie’s Cancellation with Grace, Even Sings “I Will Always Love You” to Fans


If I were actress Leslie Grace, I’d be devastated by news that my “Batgirl” movie had been cancelled by the studio. Warner Bros. is saying they won’t release the $90 million comic book film.

But Grace posted to Instagram today with exemplary Grace. The star of “In the Heights” not only wrote to her fans but in one frame sings a bit of “I Will Always Love You” a capella so beautifully she should get a recording contract out of it! In the Instagram post below, go to her last panel where Grace sings: “Bittersweet memories/That’s all I’m taking with me…”

She wrote:

“Querida familia! On the heels of the recent news about our movie “Batgirl,” I am proud of the love, hard work and intention all of our incredible cast and tireless crew put into this film over 7 months in Scotland. I feel blessed to have worked among absolute greats and forged relationships for a lifetime in the process! To every Batgirl fan – THANK YOU for the love and belief, allowing me to take on the cape and become, as Babs [Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl] said best, “my own damn hero!”
#Batgirl for life!”
