    Neat!

    Although it's not really a Supergirl movie, it's a Superman movie with Supergirl playing a prominent role.

    Yep...my bad, for some reason I read this as a Supergirl movie. Superman: Brainiac was maybe the most poignant part of Geoff Johns Superman run and certainly the most emotional apex of his run since it deals with the death of Jonathan Kent. Should be interesting to see how they adapt it.

    Darn, I was hoping it would be a Supergirl movie as well.

    Be interesting to see if they go for a similar Superman design as in the comic though...

    So now three Castle cast members will have done DC stuff. Nathan Fillion has been Steve Trevor and Hal Jordan (twice), and Stana Katic was Talia in Arkham City. I like Quinn on Castle, so it'll be interesting to see her Supergirl.

    Four. Before any of those, Susan Sullivan was Queen Hippolyta on Justice League/Justice League Unlimited (and also has a Marvel connection, having played Bill Bixby's love interest in the pilot of The Incredible Hulk).

    And you can throw in some recurring Castle guest stars: DC Animated Universe veterans include Dana Delany (Lois Lane and Andrea Beaumont), Michael Dorn (Steel and Kalibak), Phil LaMarr (Green Lantern, a different Steel, and others), and Robert Picardo (Amazo). Dan Castellaneta (who appeared as a judge a couple of times on Castle) was the Ventriloquist/Scarface on The Batman. And currently, Michael Trucco and Adrian Pasdar play unrelated characters named Strange (Adam and Hugo, respectively) on Young Justice.

    I knew about Dorn, and Delany but none of the rest of those people.

    "The Dark Knight Returns Part I", "The Dark Knight Returns Part II", "Superman: Brainiac" (or whatever they call this), and "Flashpoint".

    I hope they don't call it that, since that's unfortunately reminiscent of Superman: Brainiac Attacks, a movie I have no desire to reminisce about.

    WB banned any further female-lead movies a year or two ago because they were PO-d that the Wonder Woman DTDVD took too long to make its money back. They want projects that will sell the required number of units in a month or two, not 6-12 months.

    Yep as mentioned "The Dark Knight Returns Part I" is scheduled for this fall, I think October or November...and Part II probably in January or February. I imagine "Superman: Brainiac" will be a summer release, perhaps tied-in with the release of "Man of Steel"?

    Yeah I know, but one can always dream. :)

    I do think they probably overreacted though. WW was going to be a hard sell no matter HOW good the movie was (and I think it's one of their best, personally).

    Most of the public just doesn't find her to be all that cool or interesting. Other, younger female characters like Supergirl or Batgirl would probably do a lot better.

    It was also why there was no mention of Supergirl in the title of Apocalypse, which adapted "The Supergirl From Krypton" story arc from the Superman/Batman comic series.

    Which is a damned shame. WW is one of my favorites of the DCU Animated Movies, and would even make for a good template of a big screen movie.

    Maybe it'd help if we showed the suits at WB the results of this weeks av contest?! (WW on second place, only Iron Man getting more votes). :shrug:

    It's ridiculous to abandon all female-led movies because one did poorly. They wouldn't cancel all movies with male leads just because one did poorly. It's gross sexism.
