June 28, 2010: Summer Glau is Supergirl in "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse"

Summer Glau TVGuide.com reports that Summer Glau (best known for her role in "Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles") has been cast to voice the role of Supergirl in the up-coming "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse" animated movie.

    In the film, the latest in a Warner Bros.-produced series based on popular DC Comics stories, Glau plays Superman's cousin Kara, a mysterious survivor of the doomed planet Krypton who shows up on Earth. Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy reprise their roles as Superman and Batman, respectively, from the characters' animated series in the '90s and a previous DC movie, last year's Superman/Batman: Public Enemies.

    "Early on in the story she just wants to fit in," Timm says. "Unlike most people who suddenly attain superpowers, she's terrified of them. She doesn't want to shoot lasers out of her eyes and be able to lift buildings with her pinky."
