Who read Peter David's take on Kara Zor-El time ripped from the 60s deposited into the final issues of his comic back in 2002ish? As far as her rack was concerned, i only have two words to explain what eventually made it to the printed page: Ed Benes.

I'd prefer to forget Peter David wrote Supergirl in any way, shape or form.

I don't think Emma would look good with a Mohawk.

OH!

You mean classic Mary Marvel before things got silly and she married Darkseid... At least I assume that it's implied that all the furies are his wives like all Nuns are married to God.

Wasn't she just awesome in "I can't believe it's Not the Justice League"?

Red suit or white suit?

Re: When are we ever going to see a Supergirl flick?

Considering that Mary Batson is Billy's twin sister, and she doesn't manifest as an adult version as Mary Marvel, just a superpowered version of her normal appearance, Anna Sophia Robb would be a more accurate casting decision, as Billy and Mary are 13. Which of course is what's so horribly, wretchedly wrong with the whole Dark Mary Marvel idea, let alone storyline, in the first place.

Re: When are we ever going to see a Supergirl flick?

It's just wrong to cast a blonde as Mary.

Even with a good dye job you can tell.

Lois in that Superman movie?

I think the point of Mary and Freddie, is that their avatars grow in relation to their own respective ages, and it's really just a question of how far away in years form their origin that any story they are in is set as to how close to being an adult they may just be since for the most part it's usually at least ten years these days since Shazam started with the Child labour.

^^ If she does an American accent, I'm out; deal's off.

Well... unless, maybe, she wears this... but I still say keep the acccent. To supress a babe's British accent is a crime.

There was no Mary Marvel in the live-action Shazam! series. Billy Batson and Captain Marvel were the only comics characters to appear there. The character and the rest of the Marvel Family did appear in animated form in Filmation's later The Kid Super Power Hour with Shazam!, and more recently in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode "The Power of Shazam!"

I'm for Emma Watson...

Another name I would throw out there is the girl who played Kitty Pride in the X-Men films: Ellen Page...

I confess: I had fun writing that scene in the novelization!

A shame they didn't put out a "Dark Mary" action figure!

Re: When are we ever going to see a Supergirl flick?

Who the heck are we kidding?? The general public literally has no interest in female or strong women superheroines. Wasn't there a Warner Brother's executive a few years back that stated they put all their female heroines development in the back burner because they deduced nobody likes seeing female superheroines? No matter how progressive we may think the audience is, they are only progressive in mouth only. Nobody wants to see a female superheroine, if they did, we'd have a WW movie by now.

Re: When are we ever going to see a Supergirl flick?

if that wasn't said in response to Elektra, then it should have been said in response to Elektra.

So ad hoc.

Just because morons make a few bad movies about super heroines it don't mean that all movies about super heroines are god awful.

Really however, have thee been many girl superhero movies?
t mean that every movie
