DCEU Supergirl Movie in the Works

Many fans have noted the extreme differences between the Arrowverse and DC Comics major film universe, DCEU or DC Entertainment Universe. Fans noted how Tyler Hoechlin's Superman felt more like the lovable Big Blue Boy Scout that fans thirsted for since Chris Reeve's interpretation ended. All that aside, DCEU is looking to make a Supergirl movie according to deadline.com. This would likely exclude the possibility for Melissa Benoist taking the titular role as the universes on TV vs. Big Screen have been so vastly different and expressly divided. Working on the script currently is Oren Uziel who's credits include "Mortal Kombat, 22 Jump Street, The Cloverfield Paradox, and the in-production Sonic The Hedgehog". The studio will likely learn from its successes with Wonder Woman and seek a female director and have a strong female presence on crew.

It is hard for us to imagine anyone else taking the role of Supergirl other than Melissa Benoist. In the earliest days of the show before she was even cast, we didn't have her as a front runner. Yet ever since the pilot, Melissa has defined the Girl of Steel for a generation. While we are staunchly loyal to Melissa's portrayal of the character, we do delight at the thought of more Supergirl in our entertainment world. Should this movie move forward, we would hope to see a more direct adaptation of the character through Sterling Gate's work. A true 15-16 year old actress with powers beyond imagination would be very interesting to see on the big screen. Tie in a true-to-comic Brainiac story and you'll see us in the front of the line at midnight!

"I'd also be interested in a teenage Kara. I hope a movie would correct the odd premise of the TV show that Kara doesn't assert herself because "Earth already had a superhero". But he doesn't have the ability to be in two places at once? Wouldn't he welcome Kara's help?"

In the original Silver Age comics, he most certainly did!

Agreed! Besides, a fresh new feel to Supergirl will be fun to watch. I like the idea of an origin story, seeing a young teenage Kara a la Peter Parker in Spiderman Homecoming.

I second that. Bring on teenage Kara!


I'd also be interested in a teenage Kara. I hope a movie would correct the odd premise of the TV show that Kara doesn't assert herself because "Earth already had a superhero". But he doesn't have the ability to be in two places at once? Wouldn't he welcome Kara's help? It'd make more sense for Kara to be indecisive, unsure whether she wants to live the demanding 24/7 life of a superhero.

Above all, any movie including a teenage Kara should also explore how she feels to suddenly gain superpowers. That part of Kara wasn't examined in the TV show, not even on the "Midvale" episode.

But she has this difference with her cousin, unlike him Kara spent the first 12 years of her life feeling like an ordinary kid. But suddenly Kara has superpowers. How does she feel? Is she excited or fearful she might hurt someone? Does she feel both excitement and fear? That's something any Supergirl movie should explore.

How about the Girl that played Young Kara on the show ?

It would be best to recast a young tween / teen Kara and go from there storywise. Melissa and Helen could make cameos, and they could use the Danvers storyline...

I have been waiting for a movie. This is awesome.

Please no origin story. Spare us. Most people have a clue what happened. Lets just jump into things in this one. I do like the teen years moving into the adult years. Teen years of superman and supergirl have never really been done, most won't say, "Ugh I know this part already."

Why can't supergirl fans have there cake and eat it too. I think that a 2 and a half hour movie will work fine. The first hour is a teenage Kara and others doing what and where the story will be about. You then fast forward 15 years and bring back the entire cast and crew from the tv show. The writers can figure out how to make it happen. I just think that a supergirl movie without our supergirl is doing a disservice to the show and the fans.
Hey, if it ain't broke don't try to fix it because you will screw it up.

Quoting SuprgrlFn:
I am surprised that anyone thinks that a Supergirl movie will have ANYTHING to do with the television show. It’s an entirely different universe, conceptually speaking. There is no DEO, no Alex, certainly no “Monty” (Mon-el exists, but he is nothing like the television character), etc., etc., etc..

I’ll be very interested to see the movie, but I’m not expecting the show to be brought to the big screen and I am sure that MBenoist will not be starring. She will be “too old” by the time this gets rolling, and will likely be more than tired of playing the character and on to other things by then.

Yeah Cavill starred as a baddie in Fallout. But Thats a role he took on the side. He is still Supes for DCU. Warner want to lock him down for 10 years as Supes in the DCU. They are in Noway distances themselves from the actors playing these icons. Affleck is Maybe done But that aint even certain either. Since Reeves Batman will be a Batman story from his start as Batman to the end. And its rumored the trilogy will be 2 actors. 1 for the younger years and Affleck for his final days as Batman.

I think you misunderstand the article. Cavill already started a new persona for Superman in JL after his resurrection there. Cavill aint leaving. They are negotiating new contracts with him now. They wanna keep these actors they perfectly cast.


Newsflash for you: you're the one who didn't read the article correctly.

New sheriff in town at the studio already ditched the 'creative' team behind the flop Justice League, meaning that directional change is in the air at the movie division. The studio is now distancing themselves from anything connected to that failure, outside of their only recent hit, Wonder Woman.


The new proposed focus is on bringing in the LADIES FIRST to jump-start the studio's most venerable franchises, so there's a strong probability that recasting could be done to renew interest in those franchise characters. With this in mind, a Supergirl film adaptation could conceivably usher in a new, less brooding take on the Man of Steel. Justice League also proved that even Wonder Woman was not enough to lift the gloom from that disaster, so it's now open season on a course correction for their entire superhero movie slate.

And to address Cavill, he's probably done far more for resurrecting Tom Cruise's action hero persona as of late.
