Both ‘Static Shock’ & ‘Batgirl’ Movies Coming Exclusively To HBO Max

We got official confirmation that both Static Shock and Batgirl movies are going to be released exclusively on HBO Max. Now, this is not because of the pandemic, but it’s because Warner Brothers feel like it’s risky to release those movies in theaters.

From The New York Times, here is what the President of DC Films Walter Hamada had to say:

The most expensive DC movies (up to four a year, starting in 2022) are designed for release in theaters, Mr. Hamada said. Additional superhero films (two annually is the goal, perhaps focused on riskier characters like Batgirl and Static Shock) will arrive exclusively on HBO Max, the fledgling streaming service owned by WarnerMedia.

It’s exciting to know that we are getting Static Shock and Batgirl appearing on HBO Max. Now, I do have a problem with the quote about it being riskier to put out in theaters. Both Static Shock and Batgirl are one of DC’s biggest characters, and the only way it will fail is how they market the film. If Marvel can always take a risk using characters that people don’t know about, then WB can do the same thing.

Also, Static Shock is loved by so many people, especially people of color. Why do you think Black Panther became successful? Representation matters and people have been craving Static Shock content for years since the animated series! To say that Static Shock would be risky to release in theaters (this isn’t regarding the pandemic since it’ll probably be released in 2022-2023) is nonsense. WB needs to have faith when it comes to their DC characters being made into live-action films.
