Leslie Grace shared the final 'Batgirl' costume from the now-cancelled film in her recent Instagram post, on Sunday. The video was a compilation of the actor's memories with her family and friends and behind-the-scenes glimpses from what appeared to be the filming of 'Batgirl'. 

One of these showed Grace dressed as Batgirl. She could be seen posing for some publicity shots and stunt work that seemed related to the movie.

Sharing the video, the actor wrote: “Thank u for teaching me, 2022. you were singular in many ways that will stay with me. My gratitude and love for life are much deeper thanks to the experiences you brought me. I take your lessons with me as we part.”

Why was 'Batgirl' cancelled? 

The film was going to air on HBO Max at some point in 2023. According to the US-based online news site Deadline, Warner Bros decided to shelve the project even after the film already wrapped shooting in March of last year.

The film, which was reportedly made with a budget of $70 million movie, was doing test screenings for audiences in anticipation of a late 2022 debut, according to the New York Post.

Those tests were reportedly poorly received by moviegoers, making the makers not release the film. 

Directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, the film featured Brendan Fraser as Firefly, J. K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, and Michael Keaton as Batman.
