Her hunt to bring the killer Krem to justice brings her and the young alien in her care to a small planet, where they discover that there are still some very small minds, even on the outer edges of the galaxy. The cold welcome the locals give the Woman of Steel makes her suspicious enough to go looking for secrets they want to keep buried, and what she finds is nothing short of horrifying. Can she and Ruthye get off the planet alive now that these deadly sins have been exposed?

A Better Look at Sasha Calle as Supergirl

A few days ago, director Andy Muschietti teased Supergirl‘s costume for the upcoming film The Flash. Played by Sasha Calle, the character is one of the numerous appearances by other DC superheroes including Batman played by both Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck.

The film takes Ezra Miller‘s Flash across the multiverse. It’s unknown how Supergirl fits into the story.

Today, we have an even better look at the costume that Calle will wear. While the teaser hinted at it, the costume looks a bit like Lara Lane Kent wore in 2014/2015’s Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Three #7.

Lara Lane Kent is the imaginary daughter of Superman and Lois Lane from the “Injustice” timeline. In that world, Lois and Lara are murdered which sends Superman down a fascist nightmare path. In the series, a dream sequence showed Superman what his life, and hers, would have been like had she not died.

We know DC is going to be releasing an animated film based on the Injustice storyline, is this a hint there’s something bigger planned? Time to stock up on some comics before they rise in price!

Supergirl’s The Flash Costume Teased

In February it was announced that Sasha Calle is the new Supergirl. In a very cute video, director Andy Muschietti gave the news to Calle she would be taking on the role for The Flash.

Now, we have a tease of what Calle’s costume will look like in the film.

Muschietti, who’s been dropping teasers a lot, on Instagram posted an image of some of the costume. The design evokes the style from Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel. The red on top is a departure from the current costume but one that has some roots in previous costumes for the character.

The Flash will send Ezra Miller’s character through the multiverse setting up the vision and direction for DC’s Cinematic Universe. On top of Calle’s Supergirl, Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton will don the cape and cowl as their versions of Batman.

Review: Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #1

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #1

A new Supergirl comic in the current “age” of DC is full of potential. With the changes concerning the rest of the Superman line of characters, Supergirl is primed for the spotlight and an opportunity to stand out. Compared to Superman’s unflinching stance for good and Jonathan Kent’s needing to learn, there’s space for a hero who bridges the gap between the two and shows it’s not a boys club. But, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #1 is an unexpected detour from that potential. Instead, we get Supergirl channeling drunk Superman from Superman III and it works, just not as a Supergirl story.

Written by Tom King, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #1 isn’t a bad start. It just doesn’t feel like a Supergirl story. Off on an alien planet to support her birthday she comes across a young girl who wants revenge against the man who killed her father. Drunkenly, Supergirl rejects the plea and is later forced into the situation. With a red sun on the planet, this is a weakened Supergirl lacking much of what makes her super. There’s an interesting concept there and potential but as the opening story for the next great chapter, it doesn’t feel all that super. It’s rather dark and everyone comes off as a dick.

The idea of Supergirl fighting on a medieval-ish planet without her powers sounds interesting. It forces the character to use more than her flight and strength, and other abilities, to get things done. That’s present and is the more interesting aspect of the issue. There’s also Supergirl drunk and hungover which itself also has potential. She comes off as a little… well, a drunk I don’t want to be around. She’s not likeable and the most likeable character, Krypto, isn’t given much to do beyond adding drama to the mix.

The art by Bilquis Evely is solid. The alien world has an interesting look to it and Supergirl too looks fantastic as her messed up self. But, the opportunity to really deliver something strange and different is lost at times. It looks really good but there’s just a level of detail that it never quite reaches. It’s a world that kind of feels empty for some reason. The color by Matheus Lopes and lettering Clayton Cowles helps bring together the comic and again, it looks really good but it never quite amazes.

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #1 is an interesting comic. It’d be fine as a miniseries on top of an ongoing. It’d be fine as an arc in an ongoing. But, as the first issue to establish the character, it kind of fails. Supergirl comes off as an ass here. She’s not a hero I want to be around but instead a female Guy Gardner. There’s little super in this Supergirl unless the creators were going for super-asshole.

Ava DuVernay’s New Gods and Games Wan’s The Trench Not Moving Forward

DC Logo

The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop that Warner Bros. has shelved two of its upcoming, and high-profile, films based on DC properties. Ava DuVernay‘s New Gods and James Wan‘s The Trench are not going forward at this time.

In a statment, Warner Bros. and DC said:

As part of our DC slate, some legacy development titles including New Gods and The Trench will not be moving forward. We thank our partners Ava DuVernay, Tom King, James Wan and Peter Safran for their time and collaboration during this process and look forward to our continued partnership with them on other DC stories. The projects will remain in their skillful hands if they were to move forward in the future.

New Gods was a take on the classic Jack Kirby characters with DuVernay directing and working with comic writer Tom King. The film has been in development since 2018. DuVernay is working on the television series Naomi based on the DC character which will air on The CW.

The Trench was a spin-off from the blockbuster Aquaman. The horror-tinged film featured Noah Gardner and Aidan Fitzgerald on the script with Wan developing as producer with Peter Safran. Wan is still working on Aquaman 2 which will begin shooting later this year.

While these two projects have been shelved for now, they may happen down the road. It is believed the issue is there was no “natural” place to release the films in the current upcoming plans.

DC is currently focused on a multi-platform approach with films like The Suicide Squad and The Batman bleeding over into television with the HBO Max series Peacemaker and a show focused on the Gotham police department.

DC is still focused on creating a film universe with The Flash, tackling the DC multiverse, being key to what comes next. Upcoming films include Black Adam, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, and projects featuring Blue Beetle, Batgirl, Supergirl, Static Shock, and Green Lantern Corps. There’s also the third Wonder Woman film, newly announced Zatanna, and Superman film produced by J.J. Abrams and written by Ta-Nehisi Coates.
