Supergirl returns?

03.25.2007
While Marvel characters make it to theaters on a regular basis, most of the DC Comics superheroes haven't quite been faster than a speeding bullet to film production -- aside from Bats and Supes, most of them have been fitted for new tights only to wind up in the Phantom Zone.

Is SUPERGIRL getting ready to bust out? According to a tip from 'Lip', it could be so -- apparently Warner Bros. has already commissioned a script for the younger, blonder and breastier Supercharacter. They've supposedly even started contacting managers and agents about possible ladies for the curve-hugging blue bodysock, and we hear BATTLESTAR GALACTICA's slinky Cylon stunner Tricia Helfer was on the list of possibilites.

Of course, Helfer (however hot) is around 33 years old, so I'm not sure she qualifies for SUPERGIRL (I believe the current comic book incarnation is college age), but it does sound like the character herself is once again on the 'To Do' list at WB -- that is, unless our source is somehow confusing it with WONDER WOMAN, rendering this entire rumor moot. It is probable that this theoretical new version would completely ignore the cheesy 1984 movie featuring Helen Slater, and also not be related to the current film manifestation of SUPERMAN.

For all you BSG fans, Helfer will be back in the brain of Baltar for a fourth season, which will likely be the show's last.

Thanks again to 'Lip' for the tip!

Extra Tidbit: There have been murmurs over the past few years about the possibility of a SUPERGIRL movie, with names like Melissa George and *heehee* Mischa Barton tenuously linked to the part.

WTF?

Since when does being in orbit slow the aging process? Sounds like the worst example of comic book physics. Perhaps she was travelling at relativistic speeds? That's quite a bit different from being "in orbit."
Yeah, I'm a geek. Oh yeah, Supergirl is a lame character created only to give the fanboys wood and seperate them from their lunch money.

Well vini

Supergirl is Kal-El's kryptonian cousin. Even though she's like 17 she's actually older then him she just hasn't aged as fast as Clark cuz she spent most of her life stuck in orbit

It needs a damn good writer and a director that doesn't tell the story and just films it. It won't be hard to make it better then Superman Returns though. Damn that movie was boring.

Just keep Mischa Barton away from this movie. In fact, keep her away from all media at least until she leanr to keep her mouth shut even when she really wants off a project.

I vote for an unknown for Kara though.

What?

Unless it's a comedy or budgeted beneath $50 M, I can't see this actually going through.
