The Supergirl film has been canceled following the Batgirl DC debacle

It has been reported that Supergirl, starring Sasha Calle, will not be moving forward a few years after Warner Bros. Earlier this week, Discovery announced it won’t be releasing the Batgirl movie starring Leslie Grace.

Several reports claimed that Sasha Calle’s Supergirl film has also been canceled. Despite Warner Bros. Although Discovery has yet to confirm that the movie was shelved, insiders told Rolling Stone that it is unlikely to move forward. According to sources, the project was canceled for an unspecified reason, but it is likely a casualty of the company’s penny-pinching strategy under CEO David Zaslav.

What is the Supergirl film about?

An upcoming film featuring Ezra Miller as The Flash would have been a spinoff of Supergirl. Though Warner Bros. Although Discovery has canceled the Supergirl movie, Calle is still scheduled to make her debut as Supergirl in the Miller-led epic. In August 2018, the Supergirl film was announced as in development. Escape Room writer Oren Uziel is writing the script. Warner Bros.

reportedly wanted to hire a female filmmaker to helm the project, which had no director attached. He was said to be one of the top choices of the studio. Reed Morano directed an episode of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, which earned him an Emmy.

Sasha Calle’s Supergirl

It appears Calle’s version of Supergirl in the DC Extended Universe drew visual inspiration from the character Lara Lane-Kent, the superpowered daughter of Clark Kent/Superman, and Lois Lane in Injustice.

The Joker murdered Lois and the baby inside her, but Superman has a glimpse into what his life would have been like had he not been killed by the Joker in 2015’s Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Three Issue 7. The dream shows Lara growing up under her parents’ close supervision.

In the course of her growth, she developed her Kryptonian powers, and her dad taught her to use them, as well as other Justice League members like Green Arrow. Initially, she accompanied Superman to League battles and missions before becoming a hero on her own. The last time she was mentioned in the comics, she was on her way to Greenland to refreeze the ice caps. She is currently the ambassador for the Justice League.
