The Superman Home Page rocked the Supergirl community late last week when it shared this very short story from MovieHole.net (a site I have never heard of which makes me take this whole story with a grain of salt. Here is the link:
And here is the blurb:
The first attack in a new all-encompassing marketing blitz thatll hopefully see young teenage girls go gaga for the 'Supergirl' brand - the same way they do, say, Minnie Mouse or Dora the Explorer - is about to begin in the form of a massive clothing and merchandising launch that'll put Kara's 'S' in a million places at once. Those involved in the launch of this new Supergirl garb blitz say their job is merely the first cog in a massive wheel that'll spin out new 'Supergirl' material over the next couple of years. One of the other cogs, of course, is the feature film that'll relaunch Supergirl back onto the big screen for the first time since 1984.
Now this, mind you, is not something my contacts know a lot about - being that it's not 'their department' but what they do know is plans are definitely afoot to bring 'Supergirl' back to our screens. And soon.
So I'll believe this much more when I hear it from some place a bit more well known. JC Penney has had a Supergirl line of clothes (associated with Nastia Lukin) for some time now. So a clothing line doesn't mean much of anything to me.
Now my guess is with the uber-success of The Avengers that rumors are going to spread like wildfire about every super-hero being green-lit for a movie. So hearing Supergirl is being considered isn't surprising either.
Would I love to see another live action Supergirl movie made? Absolutely.
But before I start talking about dream directors and 'who should play who?' I think I'll wait for things to be more concrete.
