Default SUPERGIRL Movie

In The Works At Warner Bros. With THE CLOVERFIELD PARADOX Scribe Oren Uziel Penning The Script







Breaking news from the Warner Bros. lot as it's being reported that Oren Uziel (The Cloverfield Paradox; 22 Jump Street) has been tasked with penning the script for a DC movie centered on Supergirl!




Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. and DC Films are in the early stages of developing a full-length feature film centered on Supergirl, the Last Daughter of Krypton and cousin of Superman.

Further details are being kept under wraps for now and there are no producers currently attached, so it'll probably be a while before we see this go into production, but this development does seemingly suggest that it may be more of a priority for the studio, at the moment, than that long-desired Man of Steel sequel.

Story is developing...

10 Actresses Perfect To Play The Girl Of Steel In Warner Bros.' Planned SUPERGIRL Movie

With Warner Bros. moving forward on a Supergirl movie, we take a look at ten actresses who would arguably be an ideal choice to take on the role of the Girl of Steel. Hit the jump to check them out...





Earlier today, we learned that a Supergirl movie is in the works at Warner Bros. That's not the news most DC Comics fans were hoping for as it's about damn time that Henry Cavill's Superman is given another chance to shine in a solo adventure but the Girl of Steel is equally deserving of the big screen treatment. While it's still early days, fans are already wondering who could take on the iconic role.

So, with that in mind, we're now taking a look at ten actresses - of different ages from a variety of backgrounds - who we believe would be a great choice to bring Kara Danvers back totheaters across the globe. We're pretty confident that you'll have something to say about all of these, so to take a look, all you guys have to do is click on the "View List" button down below for the entire list of names.

Vanessa Kirby



Vanessa Kirby had a relatively minor role in Mission: Impossible - Fallout but what we saw of her there was excellent and it's clear that the English actress has a bright future in Hollywood. She's been rumoured for a role in Birds of Prey as Black Canary so if that doesn't work out, she's on their radar.

I could easily imagine her suiting up as Supergirl and I think she'd bring a very different feel to the character than what we've seen in the past, making the Girl of Steel a little more confident and giving her an edge. After all, that would be more interesting to watch than her "Aw, shucks" persona, right?

Angourie Rice



Angourie Rice had only a very minor role in Spider-Man: Homecoming as Betty Brant and while it's possible that could be expanded on somewhere down the line, something tells me that the talented star of The Nice Guys would be better off making the leap to the DCEU to play the Girl of Steel.

She's young enough to play a Supergirl who has only just gained her powers and there's a very good chance that Warner Bros. will look to crack into the teen market the same way Marvel has with the wall-crawler by putting the spotlight on a teenager/woman in her early 20s rather than an adult.

Virginia Gardner



Virginia Gardner stole the show in Marvel's Runaways and while a second season is currently in the works, there's surely nothing to stop her making the leap to the DC Extended Universe by playing a character for them on the big screen. Supergirl is as good a choice as any and she'd be a great fit.

She has the look down and is definitely in the right age range to play a Girl of Steel who is only just now discovering her powers. Yes, it's a little too similar to what we've seen from her in the Marvel TV show but give it a few years and no one would even think about that she dons Supergirl's iconic suit.

Francia Raisa



If you know anything about Selena Gomez, you'll probably recognise Francia Raisa's name because she was all over the place in 2017 for donating a kidney to the singer. However, she has plenty of her own stuff going on in 2018 unrelated to Gomez because she stars in Freeform's Black-ish spinoff Grown-ish.

She's the right age for the Girl of Steel and unless I'm mistaken, there aren't any rules in place stating that the character must be white and have blonde hair! Raisa would be a great diverse pick for this iconic DC Comics superhero, and more importantly, she's also incredibly talented and a solid actress.

Kathryn Newton



Kathryn Newton initially made a name for herself by starring in Supernatural but 2018 is going to be a huge year for her. In 2017, she delivered some stellar performances in movies like Lady Bird and Big Little Lies and can next be seen in PBS' Little Women along with Ben is Back and Detective Pikachu.

Simply put, the actress has to be on the studio's radar for something and Supergirl is as good a choice as any. She has the right look, is definitely a suitable age to play the Girl of Steel, and is extremely talented. She's also not a big enough name that there will be too much pressure on her performance.

Kim Matula



Kim Matula may not be someone you instantly recognise but the UnReal alum has an exciting 2018 ahead as she'll star alongside Dwayne Johnson and Lena Headey in wrestling drama/comedy Fighting with My Family. She's also the lead in FOX's LA To Vegas but what makes her a good fit for Supergirl?

Well, she's definitely someone whose star is on the rise and she has that all-American look which would be perfect for Kara Danvers. I find it hard to imagine anyone complaining if she were cast and Matula definitely feels like someone who Warner Bros. could build a successful franchise around.

Melissa Benoist



This is highly unlikely but I still think it's worth stopping to acknowledge the impressive work Melissa Benoist has down in The CW's Supergirl. Unfortunately, there's no way Warner Bros. is going to have her make the leap from the small screen to the big one but they should at least consider it (really).

After all, the studio faced backlash for choosing Ezra Miller over Grant Gustin and Benoist has proved herself on a number of occasions of being more than capable of doing some great work with this character. Alas, we'll have to be content with seeing her play the Girl of Steel on TV for the time being.

Natalie Dormer



Fans have been suggesting that Natalie Dormer take on a superhero role ever since she made a blink and you'll miss it appearance in Captain America: The First Avenger and Game of Thrones proved that she has the acting chops to go far. So, why not let her see what she can do with the Girl of Steel?

She would be a slightly older (and thereby experienced) Supergirl but with it clear that it's now possible this movie could take place in a world not connected to the DCEU, there's a very good chance we could spend time with a Kara Danvers who has been on Earth for a long time. Time will tell, I guess!

Auli'i Cravalho



The young Auli'i Cravalho rose to prominence when she won the lead role in Disney's Moana and her star has been on the rise ever since. This year, she's moved into the live-action realm with a role in NBC's Rise and she'll return to the role that made her famous in Wreck-It Ralph 2 a little later this year.

As I've mentioned, there's absolutely no rule in place that says Supergirl must be white and blonde and I definitely think Cravalho has the potential to shine on screen in a role like this. She is only 17 as of right now but by the time Warner Bros. starts shooting this one,she'll arguably be the perfect age.

Jennifer Lawrence



Oh man, how much would this p*** off some people? In recent years, Jennifer Lawrence's quirky personality (and the fact she's become the focal point of the X-Men franchise as Mystique) has resulted in fanboys turning on the actress. However, there's no way we can ignore how talented she is.

Is she the best possible choice for Supergirl on this list? Not necessarily but Warner Bros. has made some unconventional casting decisions recently, including Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker! As a result, it's perfectly feasible that they'll try to find an A-List star and Lawrence could fit the bill in that respect.

9 Actresses Who Could Play SUPERGIRL in The DCEU





It sounds like a Supergirl movie may finally be happening - and we know just the actress to play her in the DCEU. Well, we know nine who could handle the role, depending on what kind of a Supergirl story WB is looking to tell.

With a faithful take on Supergirl already airing on The CW, it's possible, and probably better for the studio to try something different. A younger Kara struggling to understand her new life, perhaps, or an older Superwoman who can stand as an equal to Henry Cavill's Superman.

Heck, why not scrap the "cousin" relationship and just reveal Kara to be the last Kryptonian not trying to kill Clark Kent?



We know that Zack Snyder had a plan for Supergirl in his larger movie universe, apparently unrelated to the version of Kara in Man of Steel's prequel comic. We wouldn't bet that his vision will be the one that WB takes, but that only makes it harder to guess what actress a Supergirl movie will need, not easier.

In the interest of not only suggesting actresses we could see playing Supergirl, but preparing fans for what the casting might say about the overall movie's direction, we're running down our top contenders.


9. Imogen Poots

The type of movie WB will want to make will inform the casting of Supergirl more than any other factor, so for our first pick, we're going with an actress versatile enough to easily pull off the challenge. Imogen Poots has demonstrated smarts, nerve, emotion, and a sense of humor throughout her career on film and TV (most recognizable to casual moviegoers for her roles in Green Room, That Awkward Moment, and Need For Speed).

Her star is still on the rise among her peers, and may step into the realm of comic book adaptations once the TV version of Y: The Last Man arrives (playing Yorick's older sister, Hero). As an actress who has chosen one interesting project after another, Imogen Poots stepping into the role of Kara Zor-El wouldn't just be fitting, but a great sign that the film itself holds promise.

8. Margaret Qualley

The other main question facing a Supergirl on film is how close it will keep to the TV version currently airing. Assuming that the filmmakers will want to take Kara in a different direction - perhaps one exploring the fear, isolation, and trauma Kara has to endure upon waking up on Earth - an actress like Margaret Qualley is a bullseye. Because it isn't easy being dangerous, angry, devastated, and afraid, all while remaining inherently likeable. But that's something Supergirl and Qualley have achieved in both their pasts.


Lest any fans worry that we're pitching a dark, or psychological thriller version of Supergirl, Kara still ends up as a hero. But being raised on Krypton gives Kara an "otherworldly" nature Clark never faced, Qualley's training as a ballet dancer and fashion model before acting will give her a head start. And with the range she's shown in the live-action adaptation of Death Note, Shane Black's The Nice Guys, or on HBO's The Leftovers, we trust she could do Kara Zor-El justice.


7. Jessica Rothe

If the critical reception of Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad (not the box office) has convinced the studio that pursuing a whimsical, more lighthearted treatment of Supergirl is best, they may not care about the movie falling too closely to the TV show. Which means that the door would be open to another actress cut from the same cloth as Melissa Benoist - that's Jessica Rothe, who fans may have already seen killed multiple times in Happy Death Day.

Others may know her from the MTV series Mary + Jane, which confirmed her knack for smaller-scale comedy in unorthodox situations (and the same goes for Death Day). Again, we can't say whether or not it's wise to deliver two similar takes on The Girl of Steel on film and TV. But for those wanting to see Henry Cavill's Superman interact with TV's style of Supergirl, that's a job that Rothe could excel at, while making it her own.


6. Naomi Scott

If her role on the short-lived Fox series Terra Nova showed she had leading potential, then the Power Rangers movie confirmed that Naomi Scott had truly arrived. Anyone who missed out on the reboot doesn't need to take our word for it. Before long, Scott was signed by Disney in the coveted role of Princess Jasmine in their live-action Aladdin movie. So if her star power seems like less than Supergirl demands, that's about to change.

It's well-deserved, too. If WB plans to give young women a heroine who embraces superpowers, instead of being terrified by them, then Scott's attitude and confidence will be put to good use. And before anyone claims that Kara Zor-El needs to be Caucasian to match Henry Cavill's skin tone... let's just not waste time on that question. Plus, Scott's native English accent would fit right in with most of the Kryptonians glimpsed in Man of Steel.

5. Saoirse Ronan

The longer rumors of a Supergirl movie swirl, the more moviegoers are going to hear Saoirse Ronan's name mentioned as a top-tier pick - assuming that WB wants to keep attracting respected, dramatic actors. And coming off an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe win for the starring role in Lady Bird, a dive into the world of superhero could make sense. But just like Qualley, the movie being planned would need to make sense.



After all, Ronan doesn't need a blockbuster potential franchise as much as WB needs a hit. So for fans expecting big things from Captain Marvel due to Brie Larson's own dramatic chops and awards, casting Ronan as the other major member of the Superman family could be a compelling counter. Ronan doesn't have much experience in action since her turn in Hanna, but... CG and training can take care of that. Assuming that's even the type of movie Supergirl will turn out to be.

4. Jessica Stroup

We should remind fans that if WB wants to make sure their movie Supergirl stands apart from the TV series, they can change more than the style or tone. They can change her age: a teenager awakening on Earth... or a grown woman emerging as an equal and peer to Superman. And if it's a thirty-something Kara that WB wants to bring to life, that's a role that Jessica Stroup could play perfectly (and would offer something new to comic fans, as well).

Stroup will be known to comic book fans for her most recent role as Joy Meacham on Marvel's Iron Fist, which some might view as a hurdle to her landing such a high-profile film role. But Iron Fist viewers will also know that Stroup's performance deserves more than just recognition as one of the best parts of Marvel's worst received Netflix series to date. Like many cast members, Joy is remembered for what Stroup brought to the character - a blend of smarts and heart that a full-grown Kara should embody to stand opposite another Kryptonian hero.


3. Adria Arjona

A Supergirl movie is just as likely to be fueled by action as introspective drama. And if the movie goes the first route, then an actress like Adria Arjona will be up to the task, fresh off Pacific Rim: Uprising, and even more recently flexing her straight-woman comedy muscles opposite Melissa McCarthy in Life of The Party. But that all comes second to Arjona's effortless demeanor as a calm, intelligent, and sincere operator - no matter how hectic the scene in question.

If Supergirl fans don't know her yet (and missed her leading role in the otherworldly Emerald City) then they will soon enough. Arjona will be starring alongside Ryan Reynolds in Michael Bay's 6 Underground film for Netflix, before stepping alongside Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, and Pedro Pascal in Triple Frontier. If they take to long to decide, WB may have trouble finding room in Arjona's schedule at all.


2. Logan Browning

There are plenty of ways that WB, or the filmmaker they attach can re-imagine or re-interpret the story of Supergirl for a feature film. And fans will probably be more open to experimentation than they were with Man of Steel, since a nostalgic version is currently airing on The CW. But if they are looking to adapt the spirit of Kara in the most direct way possible, you can't get much closer to it than Logan Browning.

The Dear White People star had a brief brush with comic book superheroism in the short-lived Powers, but we think a less irreverent heroine role may actually be a better fit. Browning has shown the passion, confidence, and authority needed to make Supergirl a force to be reckoned with, which may be harder to pull off than most fans will believe. So it's a good thing Browning can also do justice to Kara's heart, positive attitude, and warmth (while adding even more diverse casting to a movie universe already making it a priority).


1. Natalie Dormer

We couldn't put together a list of actresses who could pull off Supergirl without acknowledging the heavier hitters and more established actresses fans will be clamoring for. And even before Marvel found its version of Carol Danvers, Natalie Dormer was a top selection among fans for both Marvel and DC. It's not hard to grasp why, since the Game of Thrones alum gave one of the widest ranging, and fan-favorite performances of the show's run so far. Powerful, cunning, terrifying, sweet, sexy, and despicable evil when circumstances called for it, it's hard to think of a Supergirl story Dormer couldn't pull off on her sleep.

If the plan really is to put another Kryptonian standing opposite Henry Cavill's Superman, then Dormer makes plenty of dynamics possible. Few would ever doubt that she could leave Kal-El speechless or knocked back on his heels - and follow it up with a smirk that gives moviegoers exactly the kind of attitude they came to see. With a shot at Captain Marvel now off the table, will Dormer sign on for Supergirl to bring the same power to the big screen? We will just have to wait and see.

--

Those are just some of our favorite contenders for the starring role in a Supergirl movie. Like we mentioned before, a different kind of movie may demand a different kind of Kara, so if you have an actress in mind that we may have overlooked, let us know in the comments.

SUPERGIRL: WB Is Reportedly Looking For A Female Director To Helm The Girl Of Steel's New Movie







We recently found out that Warner Bros. was planning another big-screen outing for Supergirl, and a new report suggests that the studio is currently searching for a female director to helm the project...


Deadline has published a report on the crop of female filmmakers with projects lined up or currently shooting at Warner Bros., and in it they mention that the studio is looking for a woman to helm the planned reboot of Supergirl.

The trade reckons that this is part of a larger strategy following the massive success of Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman, which has been the studio's most successful DC project to date. This is obviously backed up by the recent hiring of both Ava DuVernay and Cathy Yan to direct New Gods and Birds of Prey, respectively.

No names are mentioned in connection with The Girl of Steel's next big-screen outing, but do you guys have anyone in mind? Drop us a comment in the usual place and let us know.

Rumor: Supergirl Movie Eyes Handmaid's Tale's Reed Morano to Direct



A new rumor suggests that Warner Bros. Pictures is eyeing Reed Morano to direct their upcoming Supergirl movie. DC Films chief Walter Hamada has been making all sorts of changes behind the scenes every since taking over the studio's DC movie division late last year, but one thing that he hasn't changed is continuing to develop a flurry of movies, almost all of which are standalone films. One such movie was revealed earlier this month: Supergirl - a solo movie focusing on Superman's cousin, Kara Zor-El.

It was reported that The Cloverfield Paradox and 22 Jump Street scribe Oren Uziel was hired to pen the screenplay for DC's Supergirl movie, though it was unclear if that script would be an origin story or perhaps a spinoff of Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. Since the project is early in development, the studio hasn't hired anyone to direct or star in the movie in the title role as of yet. But in keeping with their apparent goal of hiring female directors to helm female-led superhero movies, WB is very much hoping to hire a female filmmaker for the project - and it looks like they have identified a potential candidate.



GWW reports that WB is eyeing Reed Morano to direct the Supergirl movie, but a meeting hasn't happened yet; therefore, no offer has been made. Morano has been a well-known cinematographer in the industry, but she recently made the jump to directing by helming a few episodes of Showtime's Billions as well as Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale, for which she won an Emmy award in 2017. She also directed her second feature film, I Think We're Alone Now, starring Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning, a science fiction film which releases in theaters this September.



Given her recent track record, it isn't surprising that WB would be looking at someone like Morano to helm Supergirl. However, seeing as no meeting has taken place yet, it's safe to say that the project is still a long way off from happening. If hired, Morano would join Wonder Woman's Patty Jenkins and Birds of Prey's Cathy Yan as the DC movie universe's female directors. And putting more female-driven superhero projects into development is something that Marvel Studios is starting to do as well, having hired Anna Boden to co-direct Captain Marvel, with Cate Shortland taking on the Black Widow movie.

While the Supergirl movie continues to gestate behind the scenes, DC Films will push forward with production for Jenkins' Wonder Woman 1984, as well as start prepping for Todd Phillips' Joker, Yan's Birds of Prey, and Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley's The Flash. Of course, those aren't the only projects in the works, but they are the only ones with plans to start filming soon. Who knows, it's possible Supergirl could wind up on that list sooner rather than later.

I THINK WE'RE ALONE NOW Director Reed Morano Shows Interest In Helming The SUPERGIRL Movie




A recent rumor claimed that Warner Bros. had its eye on acclaimed I Think We're Alone Nowdirector Reed Morano as a potential candidate to helm Supergirl, and it sounds like she might be interested...


A rumor did the rounds recently which named Reed Morano as one of the directors on Warner Bros.' radar to helm the upcoming Supergirl movie, and while it doesn't appear that any official talks have taken place, it does sound like something that might happen down the line.

While chatting to THR about her new movie I Think We're Alone Now, Morano denied that she's been in contact with the studio in regards to the DC project, but admits that it could be something that she'd be interested in pursuing.
“I don’t know if it’s really a thing, [but] I like the idea of doing something new every time, so I don’t say no to any idea. I’m always thinking [how] I can bring something new to the table that still feels authentic to the story, not [doing something] just for the sake of doing something new. But if there’s a reason for me to do [Supergirl] in particular, then I would like to do it.”
Elle Fanning, who stars alongside Game of Thrones' Peter Dinklage in Alone Now, says that she and Morano have been jokingly raising their arms in Supergirl's flying pose ever since they got wind of the rumor.

Perhaps the director wouldn't need to conduct too extensive a search for her Girl of Steel if she was to take the gig![/FONT][/COLOR]

Clever Fan Theory Connects 'Captain Marvel' to Spider-Man's MCU Debut

Captain Marvel won't be making her Marvel Cinematic Universe until early next year, but what if one of the Avengers already knows of her existence in the skies above?

According to a clever new MCU fan theory, Tony Stark may be aware of the tale of Captain Marvel, or at least, the war that she was involved in back in the 1990s. The evidence presented in the theory simply points back to one casual line in Peter Parker's MCU debut, Captain America: Civil War.

A Reddit user named CaptainDeadpool172 took to the Fan Theories subreddit on Thursday, with a potential Captain Marvel reference hidden in the first conversation between Tony Stark and Peter Parker. In Civil War, when Tony first approaches Peter about joining him in the fight against Captain America, the young hero tries to deny that he's Spider-Man. This causes Tony to show a video of Spider-Man saving people, and Peter quickly says that all of the videos are "fake."

Tony responds by saying, "Like UFOs over Phoenix," alluding to the fact that the phenomenon known as the Phoenix Lights was actually real, not a hoax or an illusion. This is where the theory brings Captain Marvel into the fold.
The Phoenix Lights appeared in March 1997, and Captain Marvel takes place sometime in the 1990s. The theory suggests that the lights over Phoenix were a result of the Kree-Skrull War, which will be depicted in the Captain Marvel movie. That's pretty specific, but you can make the theory a bit broader and it will still make plenty of sense. The lights could have been Carol Danvers flying over Earth to protect it. They could have also been the Skrulls attempting to land on Earth.

Either way, the point is that the Phoenix Lights exist within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Tony Stark knows that they were real. He probably doesn't know exactly who Captain Marvel is, or her relation to Earth and Nick Fury, otherwise he would've tried to recruit her to fight against Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. However, it's reasonable to think that he could have been told at least part of the story, and he's aware that there is something else out there that isn't trying to harm the people of Earth.

What do you think of this new theory? Could Captain Marvel have actually been responsible for the Phoenix Lights? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

'Supergirl' Movie Villain Rumored To Be Brainiac






Warner Bros. may be looking to get Brainiac on the big screen again.
The villain, who has been the "planned villain" in some never-made feature films and is being featured prominently on SYFY's Krypton, is apparently now the odds-on favorite to stand against Supergirl in her upcoming movie, according to SuperBroMovies' Daniel RPK.

Brainiac was slated to appear in the Kevin Smith-written Superman Lives, which Tim Burton was to direct with Nicolas Cage in the lead role. That film almost happened, to the point where there are photos of Cage in costume, but stopped before it got off the ground.
He was also reportedly the planned antagonist for a potential sequel to Superman Returns from Bryan Singer, and could have played a role in a JJ Abrams-produced Superman movie that wasn't.

Indigo and Brainiac-13, both of whom have ties to Brainiac, have appeared in Supergirl. The villain himself has appeared in various animated forms over the years, including as the main villain in the animated feature film Superman Unbound, but made his live-action debut in Smallville. The full-on, skull-ship-riding, green-skinned alien version finally came to life on Krypton earlier this year.
A popular tweak to Brainiac's backstory, used in Krypton, might explain why he is a villain Warners would consider for Supergirl: While Superman was blasted off from the dying world as a newborn, his cousin was a teenager when Krypton died. She lived for years on Krypton and lost everyone and everything she knew when the planet was destroyed, which makes her feel like more of a refugee on Earth than Superman is.

This is significant as it pertains to Brainaic, because non-comics adaptations seem to like to make Brainiac responsible in some way for the planet's destruction, which would make him more obviously a Supergirl villain than a Superman one in some ways.

On Krypton, Brainiac's theft of the city of Kandor which ultimately led to the planet's destruction: the Collector of Worlds's attack destabilized the planet's core, and left Krypton so compromised that even the world's advanced technology could not save them. In Superman: The Animated Series, Brainiac was a Kryptonian computer, and responsible for the planet's destruction on purpose.
The Supergirl movie is still technically a rumor, although one that has a lot of heat and even some actors and filmmakers starting to get connected to it in the public imagination. Some reports indicate that Supergirl is being looked at as a potential stand-in for Superman movies if Henry Cavill does indeed leave the role.
