I think Supergirl
film would be a great idea
and i would defidently go see it to the cinema!
Along with a good story, the casting seems to be one of the most difficult things, when it comes to superheroine films
( Wonder Woman, for exsample..like we talked about in Gaiths thread
Finding someone who is 18-20 years old with the looks and the acting skills is a problem with Supergirl.
Though, I would be personally fine with Laura Vandervoort from Smallville for the role
She doesnt seem like a bad actress, plus she seems very down to earth and smart..at least judging from the interviews ive seen
I know Im drumming the acting skills drum a lot, but just think what happened with Halle Berry as Catwoman
or what they did to the character of Dinah in the horrible Birds of Prey
I mean, do we want Supergirl to be a mixture of whiny teenager and a bitch...or what?
AKA how do we portray the character on the screen?
Here is an nice interview with Helen Slater, who played Supergirl in the 1984 film:
Personally I think she really nailed the role back then, did great job..and made an iconic image of the character,
like Reeves did to Superman
or Carter to Wonder Woman
