    It is for me. I’m just not feeling it.

    That would depend on whether they go with the idea that a yellow sun also makes Kryptonians extremely long-lived / nearly immortal.

    I didn't like Joker, to me it felt too much like just watching The King of Comedy and some of Taxi Driver again, also too many developments felt random and Thomas Wayne was needlessly, gratuitously antagonistic.

    Ah, so some Supergirl chapter set say, 20 or so years in the future?

    I don't follow Supergirl looks in the comics. Short hair. Red and blue color scheme on outfit. IMO I just think more of movie Captain Marvel from "Endgame".

    Does that sound like a very relatable character? Also what has she been doing all these years? Sounds more like a Vampire with a mature personality of an immortal. SuperGIRL should be youthful and is likely going to appeal to young girls.

    The basic Supergirl design predates that Captain Marvel design by decades. And they're really not that similar, anyway.

    Supergirl is Kara (Linda) Danvers. Captain Marvel is Carol Danvers. ;)

    Well, in the comics she's Kara Zor-El, aka Linda Lee Danvers. "Kara Danvers" is an invention of the Arrowverse.

    I'm not even supposed to be here today.
    There has been a Supergirl with short, dark hair in the comics who also happened to be (or appeared to be, she turned out to be fake) the daughter of Superman and Lois Lane from the future:

    Her name was Cir-El. Maybe serves as inspiration for the Flash movie version (with the costume obviously closer to Kara's).

    I'm a little surprised they have it going down over her feet with solid blue. Most of the other Super___ costumes have had separate red boots.

    There's also Lara Lane-Kent from the "Injustice" comics, whom I mentioned earlier:

    I'm usually skeptical of fannish deep-cut obscurity theories, figuring movies are likely to go more mainstream, but given the multiversal premise of this film and the closeness of Calle's look, there could be something to this. Of course, they could also be cribbing from the design but doing something completely different as far as character/concept.

    (Personally, my preference is that she's just good ol' traditional Kara Zor-El.)

    We've already had that on TV for six years. I'd be curious to see a different take.

    The rumours she's Clark and Lois' daughter bring to mind the pregnancy test in ZSJL.

    Forgive me, I only watched it once...what pregnancy test?

    I know they CGI'd a baby basket into Lois' hands at the end, but I don't remember the test.

    It's in the drawer she opens to get out her press pass ID.

    Good catch. That could be a springboard for DCEU Supergirl.
