Supergirl movie set to begin production early next year?

June 2nd, 2019 by Marc Comments

While there’s not much to go on here, there’s a new report that DC/Warners are looking to put a Supergirl movie into production as soon as next year.

While we knew a while ago a Supergirl movie was in the works – let’s hope it’s better than its current TV incarnation – I didn’t expect it to begin so soon.

With the whole ‘will he be back or won’t he?’ around Henry Cavill as Superman, it looks like Warners are happy to let Man of Steel 2 sit on the back burner for another while (look, like it or not, Batman V Superman and Justice League were both sequel to Man of Steel albeit under different names, ok) other characters take to the fore.

The report read simply: “Supergirl is tentatively expected to start production in the first quarter of 2020, and I suspect we’ll hear casting information start to circulate in a few months.”

While I will stand by Henry Cavill’s casting as Superman until my dying breath, I’m certainly ok with DC/Warners exploring the world of other characters, after all, I loved Shazam! and both Wonder Woman and Aquaman proved that it doesn’t need to be Batman or Superman to give the fans what they really want.

Does this mean The CW Supergirl show is in trouble? Hard to say – we know that DC don’t like their characters existing in two places at once but The Flash TV series continued after he made it to the Justice League, so I won’t call last orders. Yet.

Let me know what you think about a new Supergirl movie in all the usual ways, gang.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
