Will Batgirl and Static Shock be HBO Max exclusives?

Will Batgirl and Static Shock be HBO Max exclusives?
According to what was recently reported by the New York Times, Warner Bros. would be working on two films taken from the DC Comics universe that would see Batgirl and Static Shock as protagonists. The DC Films universe has undergone several evolutions over the years, as Warner Bros. has worked to bring a slew of beloved DC Comics characters to the big screen.

With the COVID-19 pandemic changing Warner production schedules, there are still many new films in the pipeline or in the works. In addition, it also appears that DC Films may soon change the distribution method of its products, as well as planning the release of six films per year starting in 2022. A recent article in the New York Times (which you can read at this link) reports the words of the president of DC Films, Walter Hamada, and shows a preview of what the strategy of the company could be after the hybrid, cinema and HBO Max release. by Wonder Woman 1984. Part of the article points out that DC Films plans to release two films a year exclusively on HBO Max, and it is speculated that there may also be two films focusing on two very risky characters from the DC Cominc universe: Batgirl and Static Shock.

Obviously, there are still no official statements on the fate of the two films, but the fact that the two films are mentioned in the NY Times article, even if not directly in Hamada's words, portends a lot of implications interesting. The Batgirl movie has been in the works for several years now, with Joss Whedon initially chosen to write and direct the project, only to abandon it a few months later. Christina Hodson, who wrote both Birds of Prey and the upcoming Flashpoint for DC Films, has been running the Batgirl script since April 2018, but no official updates have been provided recently.

The start of work on the Static Shock film, however, had been announced for October this year, with Michael B. Jordan producing the project. While there are certainly fans who would like to see Batgirl or Static Shock on the big screen, even if the NY Times article doesn't definitively confirm the fate of either film, one must understand Warner Bros.'s choice of to distribute DC films on HBO Max. Choice that could involve a much wider audience than usual, according to what happened with Birds of Prey.

Also, the increasingly uncertain fate of theatrical distribution in full swing pandemic of COVID-19, certainly does not help the recovery of the cinema as we know it and are used to enjoying it. With the collaboration between Warner Bros. and HBO Max, what is happening with Disney Plus and the distribution on the streaming platform of the Marvel Cinematic Universe products could happen. A sort of consolation prize for fans who cannot, for obvious reasons, go to the cinema.
