Didn't HBO cancel some GoT spin off that spent millions and millions and then scrapped it?

:nod:
The pilot, shot in Northern Ireland in the summer of 2019, was to take place during the Age of Heroes in Westeros, which suggested the potential show would have adapted the events of The Long Night, the first war against the white walkers that led to the construction of the Wall in the North. The official logline read, "The series chronicles the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros' history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend… it's not the story we think we know."
You think HBO cared about that money?
iirc (didn’t click link) they spent like $30M on it

Probably didn’t even blink

I mean, when he trains Batgirl, he's older, so.... yeah. Sure. It's fine.

I hope there's some serious editing because that suit fits like garbage. That photo of him making the crazy face, the suit is all rippled and frumpy
Sounds like the suit belongs in the same place as the entire movie.

Robert Pattinson Batman was pretty good.

Wonder Woman OG is good.

Everything else falls off a cliff REAL QUICK

No one wants to watch a superman who is depressed and doesn't want to be superman or batman fighting superman because batman has PTSD.

All depressing and drab.
Seriously there’s enough “deep, dark, brooding” shit going on in the real world.

People want an excited, confident Superman who’s ready to go kick some ass.

Two different things.. The first GoT spinoff was cancelled when Season 8 started shitting the bed and they realized they needed to stick with stuff with source material (with GRRM being involved). They somehow realized their mistake from letting Dumb & Dumber run with it. That's what gives me hope for HotD - plenty of source material and GRRM heavily involved (same with Dunk & Egg).

This shitshow is more related to the new CEO trying to pivot the entire company. He wants HBOMax to be a piece of Discovery+ and not the other way around. Big dumb, in most people's opinion. This means Max originals probably go away and any WB movies have to be "giant theatrical events." They figured Batgirl was going to be more on the level of a standalone MCU character movie (that's probably even optimistic), and therefore would rather take the tax writeoff and permanently shelve it, than release it anywhere (even streaming).

Fuck this guy. He's going to drive all the HBO content into the ground. DCEU was already kinda in the ground, so..
