Kara Zor-El could be heading to the phantom zone.

After the surprise cancelation of Batgirl, all eyes are on Supergirl… and it’s apparently not looking good.

According to Rolling Stone, the shake-up at Warner Bros. Discovery goes further than just DC’s upcoming Batgirl film – it’s likely to affect other superpowered projects, too.

“Supergirl, which is in development, is not likely to move forward,” said insiders familiar with the project.

A Supergirl movie has been in the works at Warner Bros. since it was announced in 2018. Since then, 26-year-old Sasha Calle was cast in the title role as Kara Danvers, aka Supergirl. While fans went wild recently after seeing her in the Supergirl suit, it looks as though the upcoming movie is also in danger of being canned.

The new Supergirl was set to make her big screen debut in the upcoming Flash solo film starring Ezra Miller, with her own solo movie to follow later. But now it’s unlikely that this movie is going to happen, it seemingly casts serious doubt over her appearance in The Flash, too.

It seems that the cancelation of Batgirl has far-reaching implications for the troubled studio, which has also begun ditching HBO Max Originals from its online streaming service.

Of course, Supergirl isn’t the only superhero that’s nervously eyeing the chopping block – DC also made earlier commitments for a Blue Beetle movie starring Cobra Kai’s Xolo Maridueña, and the planned Black Canary movie starring Jurnee Smollett.

Every DC Movie and Series Affected by the Warner Bros. Discovery Merger

You have to wonder whether these projects will go ahead, and which other DC projects are in the firing line. Either way, it looks as though Warner Bros. Discovery is undergoing a big shake-up, with beloved DC properties unclear where they stand.

Despite the cancelations and uncertainty, Joker 2 is still going ahead with Joaquin Phoenix returning to the role of Arthur Fleck. But that’s to be expected – after all, with 11 Academy Award nominations and a box office haul of over $1 billion, a sequel was inevitable.

What will happen to the rest of the DCEU remains to be seen. Want to find out more about the Warner Bros. Discovery shake-up? We break down exactly what happened to Batgirl and take a look at which other DC heroes are facing the axe.
