Franchise Me Bonus: Our reaction to WB, Batgirl, and David Zaslav
Welcome to a special bonus episode where we discuss our reaction to the recent decisions being made over at WB, specifically with the recent Batgirl cancellation. While recording the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts episodes we made jokes and references to "The Discovery Guy" David Zaslav who earlier this year took over as head of Warner Brothers Discovery. We commented on enjoying some of the ideas that he was rumored to have and mentioned that we were rooting for and supporting him. With the recent cancellation of Batgirl, Scoob!: Holiday Haunt, and the overall new direction of WB and HBO Max, along with the timing of the release of our Fantastic Beasts episodes, we thought it was only appropriate to address this news along with our previous statements. This was recorded the day after the Batgirl news broke, so some of the information may not be completely up to date, and our anger and disappointment at the news was still fresh so please forgive any mistakes we may have made.
