With the "toxic" character finally set to return next year to DC Comics comes another blow to Stephanie Brown fans. This time, production has halted (possiblity temporarily) on the fan series Batgirl: Spoiled which featured the character as Batgirl (along with other DC characters such as Oracle, Penguin, Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and others that were teased to appear in future installments as shown in the video below).
This past Friday, they posted this on their Facebook page:
This is the first time this reporter can recall of Warner Brothers having gone after a fan series. Though, given this was a crowdfunding attempt the creators of the fan series were attempting, money was involved. It seems only logical, no matter how innocent the intentions of the fan series, that Warner Bros might need to defend their copyright. The same plight came upon the recent fan-film about the Punisher, The Dead Can't Be Distracted, that was to adapt the opening story arc by Greg Rucka.
It should be noted as well that this fate didn't befall that other REDACTED fan-film Dirty Laundry which starred the third best actor who played REDACTED. I can't help it. I'm a fan of Ray Stevenson and Dolph Ludgren was an under-rated REDACTED. Anyway, we'll keep you updated if there are any further developments.
