Supergirl Summer News Roundup

Greetings everyone, its been a while since we've had a chance to talk with you all! Admittedly, with the late finish for season 3 and the quick turn around for SDCC coming up, we took a little time to ourselves to relax and let the slow news cycle work to our advantage! That said, there are some noteworthy Supergirl related tid-bits that we should let you know about. Check out our first "Summer News Roundup" below. We will likely have several of these as small tidbits begin to gather.

Supergirl the Movie Gets Blu-Ray Release: There are always multiple beginnings for everything. Whether its Action Comics 252, or the first time the Girl of Steel appears on a TV show, fans always get multiple first and interpretations of the character. In 1984, Helen Slater (Eliza Danvers) made her debut as the girl of steel in her own movie, Supergirl. Now, after 34 years, the movie is getting a new release on Blu-Ray that includes a director's cut and an international cut! Here is the synopsis of the movie:

When she loses her city's vital power supply, Kryptonian Kara follows it to Earth in the hopes of retrieving it. Although gifted with powers like her cousin Superman, Kara struggles to defeat the evil Selena, who now controls the mighty object. To fit into her new surroundings, Kara disguises herself as high school student Linda Lee and says that she's Clark Kent's cousin.
The movie can be purchased July 24th.

Quoting RobertAnthony:
There will be a Supergirl 1984 movie panel at SDCC. The scheduled guests include...

Helen Slater (of course), Marc McClure (Jimmy Olsen) and Warner Archive Collectible podcasters George Feltenstein, Matt Patterson, and D. W. Ferranti. Moderator Gary Miereanu will have goodies for some lucky fans.


Great! I always thought Helen was an excellent actress, and held her own with the others every time she was on the TV show!

Is the film being released in the UK? or is it just to be released in America?

#3 Regarding the Blu-Ray releaseKET1 2018-07-05 18:56
BTW, in regards to the difference between the two versions of the movie, the International cut of the 1984 Supergirl movie is the 124 minute version that was originally released in most parts of the world (except for the US, which opted for a shortened edit to 105 minutes). The Director's Cut extends the film's length to 138 minutes, and IIRC, has only been available in limited edition DVDs that were released by Anchor Bay Entertainment back in 2000 and 2002. So this new release is pretty big news indeed.

Looks great! I voted. My personal favourite is # 3.

Looking forward to having the Supergirl movie Blu-ray in my collection sometime soon. It took years to get to this format, but it has finally gotten the BR treatment it rightfully deserves. 8)

Really happy about the movie getting a Blu-Ray release, Helen will always be my Supergirl and to be able to watch her in High Definition will be extra special, hoping Warner release it internationally.

The 2nd T-Shirt design is far and away my favourite of the 10 designs, will definitely make a purchase of that if you ever offer it (and ship outside the U.S.).

Looking forward to SDCC and all your coverage.
