Darkseid should be saved to get taken down by the Justice League in a film where it's just the JL vs Darkseid.
Well, that's what I was saying. Break SfK into two movies, the first as a Supergirl origin and the latter half as a JL sequel dealing with Darkseid. That's if he doesn't die in the first JL movie... Or some other big bad.

Basically, I like how she was introduced in SfK. Both it and the New 52 intro were both done very well. I like in both how she immediately starts causing mayhem, however unintentional, although when she meets Kal in both, the reaction in each iteration is completely different.

Although, I don't know if they can still pull off the cousin-part? In some flashback scene they would have to go back to before Krypton's destruction and introduce her parents as related to Jor-El. They could use the New 52 story line for that, as describing Jor and Zor as being estranged, with the younger Zor-El copying his brothers work.

But however they do it, I want a big screen original for Kara rather than having her just be there, and then do another prequel movie. It worked good for WW, but I wouldn't want to reuse the formula.

I would like this a lot. Having a youngster to train would take the edge off current Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. Well, WW doesn't seem to have sharp edges; but it'd be great to see her in a mentor role.

For some reason, I am reminded of "Three men and a baby" though.

Default Re: Supergirl to join the DCEU?

I thought of a way to introduce a modern Kara Zor-El while not ignoring the MOS prequel comic, which I personally had no idea existed. From what I understand the prequel Kara was a Kryptonian explorer who landed on Earth 1000 years ago. Her ship is the basis for Superman's Fortress of Solitude. This Kara let's call her Kara-1 was an ancestor of Kal-El and would be dead.

It's too late for JL but MOS2 could introduce a modern Kara Zor-El let's call her Kara-2. Kara-2 can be Superman's first cousin and can say she was named after thier common ancestor. Kara-2 can have one of the characters more common comic books origins, like the TV show. As a bonus while Kara-2 is telling Superman about Kara-1 and the two of them put together that she landed on Earth we can get one flashback scene of Kara-1, which would serve as an advertisement for the prequel comic. Double bonus if Melissa can play Kara-1 in that one scene. Melissa would probably have time to do one short scene that can be filmed almost anytime during MOS2 production and it wouldn't obligate her to do anymore later.

I like the idea of Benoist doing a small prequel scene. Kind of sad for the character though, being stuck on Earth a thousand years ago.

They probably won't even touch the prequel comic though. As has been stated, not enough are even aware of it to spend fifteen minutes of movie time incorporating it.

If they introduce Supergirl, it won't be Benoist.

No, just speculation on a cameo appearance having to do with the prequel comic associated with MoS.

Default I love MelBen but this girl could be SG in the DCEU

I was on netflix and the cover had some movie call "You Get Me", which I scrolled through in the FF for about 3 minutes and realized well, it wasn't my kind of film.

BUT - I noticed the lead actress, Halston Sage would be perfect for a Supergirl role, maybe not as perfect as MelBen, but still quite good as her interviews on Youtube showed she also has a funny, bubbly personality.

So if the films with JLA and such need an actress for the Supergirl role, and I hope they do - I nominate Ms. Sage. She can do it.

Oh dayum, that'd be quite the role. I've seen her in enough movies to get that she gets typecast as the popular mean girl.

I think she seems too much of an earth girl. Or certainly a typical California girl.

I'd want someone who has more of an innocence and doesn't seem like they just grew up in California. Helen Slater had this more ethereal, innocent quality to her when she was cast. I'd like similar casting but with a little more spark to be more like Rapunzel from Tangled. Halston Sage seems a bit too worldly, if that makes sense. She's also not 6 years younger than Melissa but only 4. She's 24, so probably already too old to play Kara by the time they ever get this off the ground.

I'm sticking with my choice of Skyler Samuels.....

And she is best buds with Colton Haynes....

And she has already had super powers.... from "9 Lives Of Chloe King"

I'm still rooting for a believable teenage Supergirl for the movies, so someone like Angourie Rice from The Nice Guys and The Beguiled would be my pick.

I have no idea. There were some stunts in The Nice Guys, I guess. But either way, her career's just starting (she's only 16) and there's a first time for everything.

She is in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but I don't think it is a legit role. I'd love her. Her relationship with Gosling The Nice Guys might be my favorite thing in that film, and that is saying something. Either way, who knew the little sister from 90 Days of Summer could kick everyone's ass? So yeah, you can make it work.

It was 500 Days, Darth. 500! 90 days is just...a normal summer, lol. But yes, I honestly felt like she stole the film from Gosling and Crowe, which is saying a lot because they were both great in it.

And yeah, I almost mentioned the Chloe Moretz example myself - proof that youth and inexperience are non-factors with the right training/directing.

Shame... Shame... Shame...

Unless you are Finn Jones. In which case you have no hope of looking good in a fight.

I did say with the right training, and Jones admitted he didn't really train because "the schedule didn't allow time for it" so...yeah.
