Among the hundreds of people affected by Warner Bros. Discovery’s shocking decision Cancel HBO Maxs batgirl movie yesterday (even as it allegedly was 90 percent of the way to completion)Few, of course, take center stage as star Leslie Grace. Singer-songwriter Grace – who had her breakthrough in 2021 as one of the protagonists in Warner’s In the heights— after all, spent quite a bit months of her life at this point getting beat up in spandex in scotland for the film, which was slated to release on HBO Max after the first shoot wrapped in March 2022. So, observers were pretty curious about what she had to say about the parent company’s move to keep the film on the shelf indefinitely.

Grace took the highway tonight though, post on Instagram tonight that was completely focused on the people who made them batgirl with, instead of the not-particularly appreciative overlords they technically made the movie for:

Querida familia! Following the recent news about our movie ‘Batgirl’, I am proud of the love, hard work and intention that all our incredible cast and tireless crew have put into this film over 7 months in Scotland. I feel blessed to have spent a lifetime working and forging relationships among absolute greats! To every Batgirl fan: THANK YOU for the love and faith that allowed me to take on the cape and, as Babs put it best, “my own goddamn hero!”

Grace accompanied her post with a number of photos and videos from the Scottish production of the film, including videos of her serenading the camera as she dresses up, interacts with the film’s camera crew and sings with her castmates. It’s all very positive and very light on the “fuck you, Warner Bros. Discovery president David Zaslav.” Grace’s post comes not long after the film’s directors, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Falla, made their own social media statements about the cancellation, describing herself as “sad” and shocked by the news.”
