Is the Sashe Calle “Supergirl” Movie Dead?

Supergirl

On the back of Warner Bros. deciding to kill off the near-complete “Batgirl” movie, canceling the film’s planned theater release and deciding not to release it to HBO Max either, speculation is now turning to other planned DC films and whether they are also set to be given the chop.

RollingStone.com claims that their sources are of the opinion that the planned “Supergirl” movie starring Sashe Calle will not go ahead.

The report reads: Now, the prospect of other DC films being squashed looms. Insiders say Supergirl, which is in development, is not likely to move forward. Sasha Calle, who plays the caped superheroine, is introduced in the upcoming The Flash. Supergirl was going to spin off of the Miller-led tentpole.

This further confirms that Warner Bros. is distancing itself from Zack Snyder’s vision for the DC Universe, with the “Batgirl” film’s cast including J.K. Simmons, who was set to reprise his role of Commissioner Gordon.

What it means for “The Flash” and Calle’s future as Supergirl remains unknown at this point in time.

This seems like bit if a stretch to say.. Supergirl and Batgirl were being planned to replace Batman and Superman. This was Hamada’s vision. If anything this is a move away from the Hamadaverse. This only raises the chances of a return to the snyderverse.

With as many cancellations happening, no movie or show is safe. I’m just hoping that they leave Superman and Lois alone. I love that series. I know that season three has been confirmed for next year and that production begins in the fall.

I feel bad for the people involved, but I’m glad we’re moving away from Hamada and Ann Sarnoff projects. I was not enamored with what Snyder did, but I was no fan of Hamada, johns, emmerich or Sarnoff’s vision. The movies under their watch were sub par and nothing special. Felt like it was trying to copy marvel. Say what you will about Snyder, but at least he had a distinctive style. Birds of prey was pointless, Wonder Woman 84 was a huge disappointment and aquaman only holds up because momoa is so charismatic. I was NOT looking forward to… Read more »

This is great news for a restoration of the Snyderverse or something similar. These B and C list characters were supposed to replace Ben and Henry, but with them cancelling this stuff, it solidifies that they are continuing with the pre-Sarnoff era. Zaslav said he wanted to focus on Batman, Superman, WW, and Aquaman, right? Well guess who hasn’t completely burned bridges? Ben, Henry, Gal, and Jason Mamoa.

This is a step in the right direction for those 4 and us as fans.

No big loss there. Supergirl/Kara Zor-El is blonde, not a Latina.

I really hope that someone brings up the idea of having multiple versions of Superman to Mr. Zaslav. It would a waist in my opinion to let a golden opportunity to possibly give Superman maximum success pass by.
