Kevin Smith called Warner Bros. for their decision to postpone the upcoming Batgirl movie as they proceeded with the release of the Ezra Miller movie The Flash.

The Red Bank, a New Jersey native, 52, made the comments about his YouTube series Hollywood Babble Onand said it was “an incredibly bad look to cancel the Latina Batgirl movie,” with actress Leslie Grace, 27, in the titular role.

“I don’t care if the movie was absolutely fucking doggystyle — I guarantee you it wasn’t,” Smith said, adding that Batgirl filmmakers Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi previously worked on “a few episodes of Ms. Marvel, and it was a great fucking show and they had more money to do Batgirl than they did an episode of Ms. Marvel and stuff.”

The studio said last week that it would not release Batgirl theatrically or on its streaming service HBO Max, after it claimed it lacked the scale for a theatrical release and could affect the brand’s future.

According to Varietywas Warner Bros. perhaps looking for a tax write-off on the movie, which would only be possible if the movie wasn’t released through whatever platform.

Smith said he was skeptical of rumors that poorly received test screenings soured studio executives to release the film, adding that the DC-branded content released on the CW network reflects the money allocated to the budget.

“I love all The CW shows, but The CW shows show their budget constraints,” said the director of films like Clerks, Chasing Amy and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. “They said Batgirl looked too cheap because it was a $90 million movie.

The director said, “They said Batgirl looked too cheap because it was a $90 million movie. How do you make a cheap-looking 90 million dollar movie?’

How do you make a cheap-looking $90 million movie? If it looked a little better than an episode of Arrow, why couldn’t we see it?’

Smith also raised the studio’s decision to keep moving with the release of The Flash amid multiple issues surrounding star Ezra Miller, 29, who is accused of strangling an Icelandic woman in a bar and another woman. in her Berlin home.

Miller has also been arrested twice in Hawaii this year, once in connection with second-degree assault and another in disorderly conduct. On Monday, Miller was charged with felony burglary in Stamford, Vermont in connection with a May 1 incident in which he is accused of stealing booze from a home.

Smith said the call to go ahead with a theatrical release for the film — which David Zaslav, CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, confirmed in a company earnings call earlier this month – was a “baffling thing” amid Miller’s legal troubles.

“I don’t care how bad the Batgirl movie is, nobody in that movie is complicated or has anything in their real life that you have to sell,” he said. “In The Flash movie, we all know there’s a big problem! Flash is the Reverse-Flash in real life.’

Smith also put forth the studio's decision to go ahead with the release of The Flash amid multiple issues surrounding star Ezra Miller, 29, who was photographed last March following an arrest in Hilo, Hawaii.
