Yay… another DC movie from WB.
Oh, but, wait, it is Supergirl? Well, that might just be…
I have watched the DC movies of the last few years, except for Justice League because I just have not gotten around to it. Even watched both versions BvS hoping that one of them would be good. There is so much out there to watch right now, that it is sometimes hard to shift gears and watch something that you fear may disappoint you. But, DC is killing it on TV. They have some really great shows. Marvel, too, but DC has really done well with creating a sense of continuity between everything.
I do not say this because I am a “Marvel Fanboy” or a “DC Hater” or whatever you trolls on out there want to label anyone with an opinion different than yours. As a matter of fact, I am a huge comic book fan, have been since I was a little kid, and I love the stories. I read DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, Dynamite, Archia, Top Cow, Zenescope, Archie, IDW, Oni Press, Black Mask, and comics from many other companies and independent creators. I love them all. I have always been good at seeing the good in a book, game, movie, or whatever. True, sometimes there are some stinkers, but this is always the product of some creator and their passion, and you should consider that when you decide to ridicule and shame the creators for things that you dislike.
So, what about that Supergirl movie? At this point, we only know two facts. First Oren Uziel has been tapped to create the script. This guy has some decent movies behind him. He wrote 22 Jump Street, and worked on Mortal Kombat, The Cloverfield Paradox, and wrote and directed the Neflix show Shimmer Lake, an interesting crime thriller told almost like Memento, showing the days in reverse order to uncover the crime.
Are we excited? Are we getting our hopes up? Don’t answer that.
The real question is this.
WHICH SUPERGIRL WILL THE MOVIE BE ABOUT?
Take your pick. I mean, we have the wholesome newcomer to our planet from her first appearance in Action Comics #252. We have the more modern, but still fighting for what is right version from the 1980s. Who can forget Helen Slater in the original movie back in 1984, who now plays Kara’s adoptive mother in the Supergirl TV show on the CW. We have the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s versions of this iconic cousin of Superman.
Who do you want to see a movie about? Which character is really the best for this sort of thing?
