Rolling Stone is reporting that the Supergirl solo movie is likely dead.

The axe continues to swing!! I still think a Superman/Supergirl movie could be great, the both of them actually working together as a team.

Twitter is going to run out of hashtags from people trying to save movies if WB keeps it up.

The previous WB regime was pushing for Supergirl and Batgirl to become primary characters and lead the "new Justice League" or whatever. Make whatever "go woke, go broke" jokes you want, but it looks like the new regime wants to retain the "classic" DC iconography.

Which I'm fine with. Bring back Cavill. Even Affleck. Just give them good material.

Proof of this? I have a hard time believing they'd push a JL movie without any kind of Batman.

Granted, they make baffling decisions all the time but that would seem really dumb.

Also (not saying this is you, Hokeyboy) if people are up in arms over DC going woke with Batgirl and Supergirl, they need to check when these characters were created, reminds me of people being up in arms over there being a She Hulk.

I don't think hard decisions have been made going forward about the creative direction Warner wants to take with their superhero properties. They are hoping very badly the Flash and Black Adam don't bomb.

I have heard of more delays for the already finished DC movies, however.

Batgirl only needed additional VFX for completion. Supergirl though was pretty far along into development. I think most principal shooting had been finished.

Maybe it's a good sign that they'll scrutinize the quality of their movies more now going forward.

“Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow”

Based on King’s comics run of the same title from 2021 and 2022, “Woman of Tomorrow” features Superman’s cousin, Kara Zor-El, who, as Gunn explained, “is a very different type of Supergirl.”

“We see the difference between Superman, who was sent to Earth and raised by loving parents from the time he’s an infant, versus Supergirl, who was raised on a rock chip off of Krypton, and watched everyone around her die and be killed in terrible ways for the first 14 years of her life.”

Gunn called this Supergirl “much more hardcore” — though King’s series also involves Krypto, the superdog.

Poor Sasha Calle. She gets cast basically for a small supporting part in The Flash and that’s it.

I havenít read it, but it reminds me of the daughter character from that Netflix series Jupiterís Legacy a few years back with Josh Duhamel. Weird show.

I never liked the idea of female versions of male characters. Not that I don't like female characters, but I wouldn't want to see Wonder Boy, Black Widower and Catman either. That being said, I don't know the comic version of this iteration of Supergirl, but the synopsis sounds far more interesting to me than just Girl Clark Kent.

They've cut her appearance entirely in the Flash. We may never even see the footage she filmed.

Tom King is not well-liked by most DC fans. Befuddling they would adapt his story for Supergirl.

Clearly Gunn is doing his own thing though. I mean, based on the reactions over the past 24hrs lots of DC folks hate Damian Wayne, but Gunn loves him and is gonna put him in a movie. So him choosing a story from Tom King actually tracks.

I mean it's not as bad as that first Supergirl series after they reintroduced her, where she had some dark mission to kill Superman that the next writer immediately retconned as Kryptonite poisoning. Or the post New 52 one who had nothing in common with pre New 52 supergirl besides name or powers?

Man, Supergirl comics kind of suck. Her best stories are probably with the Legion or in the Peter David run which is basically too steeped in weirdness and continuity to touch.

James Gunn and Peter Safran’s slate of DC movies continues to move forward.

Ana Nogueira, the actress and playwright who is now making forays into screenwriting, has been tapped to pen Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, a standalone feature centered on the Kryptonian cousin of Superman being developed by DC Studios.

No director is attached and Nogueira’s deal only recently closed.

The project is actually a redo for Nogueira. The writer was quietly hired to pen a Supergirl movie in 2022 when Warner Bros. was developing the project as a spinoff of The Flash, then in post-production. Flash featured Sasha Calle as the heroine and the hope was to launch another DC film franchise.

Those hopes were seemingly dashed when Gunn and Safran were brought in to oversee a reorganized DC arm. That project was tossed as the new execs focused on creating a brand new slate, separate from former DC Films boss Walter Hamada’s vision. Early this year, Supergirl was revealed to be part of that slate as a project without any connection to the Flash movie. Rather it was now connected, in title and story, to a comic book mini-series written by Tom King that was published in 2021 and 2022 and sought to redefine the character as something more than just a girl version of Superman.

“Superman is a guy sent to Earth and raised by loving parents, where Supergirl in this story, she is a character raised on a chunk of Krypton,” Gunn explained in a video released on Twitter at the time. “She watched everybody around her perish in some terrible way, so she’s a much more jaded character.”

The comic featured Kara Zor-El, aka Supergirl, who, along with superdog Krypto, gets caught up in a young alien girl’s galaxy-spanning revenge quest. DC Studios is keeping the project’s plot under wraps.

Gunn and Safran liked the work Nogueira had done on the previous Supergirl project and quietly brought her back, even giving her an overall DC writing deal.

Nogueira may be best known for a stint on CW’s The Vampire Diaries, with acting credits including The Michael J. Fox Show and The Blacklist. But she has also built a thriving writing career. Her play Which Way to the Stage debuted off-Broadway in 2022 and she is working on an adaptation of author Alice Sola Kim’s short story Mothers, Lock Up Your Daughters, set up at Warners with 21 Laps producing.

She is repped by CAA, Howard Green Entertainment, and Goodman Genow.

How big of a tax write-off are they going to get when they shelve it?

Sounds like her script is done. Gunn gave it a seal of approval on his Instagram post




A hearty public welcome to Ana Nogueira to the DC Studios family. Ana is an amazing writer whose screenplay adaptation of Woman of Tomorrow is above and beyond anything I hoped it would be. We’re excited to be moving forward on this unique take on Supergirl in this beautiful, star-spanning tale.
