Director Zack Snyder has debunked the fan theory that the open pod in the “Man of Steel” movie was Supergirl/Kara Zor-El.
As you’ll recall, Clark Kent explores the Kryptonian scout ship found in the arctic, where he comes upon a number of pods. One of the pods contains a deceased Kryptonian, but another is seen open and empty.
With the recent announcement that Warner Bros. are looking to produce a live-action Supergirl movie, there’s been quite a bit of speculation as to how this might fit in to the established continuity of recent Superman films.
Interacting with fans via his Vero social media account, Snyder hinted that the open pod was not intended to indicate that Supergirl had made it to Earth, but was in fact for something else he had planned.
When a fan questioned him about whether the open pod was his way of leading to a Supergirl revelation or something else, he answer: “The open pod was something more.”
What that “something more” was supposed to be, we don’t yet know. Maybe Snyder will reveal more some time in the future.
