I definitely agree with you. That's one ball that Singer dropped by introducing Jason into the mix. Kara would have appealed to another demographic and brought another niche of fans into the film, and if it were Elisha Cuthbert, or Hilary Duff as widely speculated it could have been.

Singer's approach will unlikely see that happen. He has a tendancy to downplay the impact of females in his films. Evidenced by the limited roles in Apt Pupil, Usual Suspects, and both X-Men films. He did have a major role for Lois Lane, but Superman canon pretty much requires it.

Singer dropped the ball with many missed opportunities. Kara really rocked in STAS/JL/JLU, and it would have been great to see her on-screen in a quality manner.
