DC Entertainment is about to have a very successful television season this fall, debuting new shows The Flash, Gotham and Constantine alongside returning series Arrow. Naturally, there has been talk over what will come next. There has been interest in a Suicide Squad-centric spin-off from Arrow, while there’s a possibility for Constantine to spin-off other supernatural DC characters. Now, a new rumor has emerged suggesting an unexpected option.
According to Bleeding Cool, DC is pitching a television series starring none other than Supergirl. Michael Green, whose credits include Smallville, Green Lantern and a now likely defunct Flash film, is reportedly attached to write and produce the potential show. Green was also involved alongside Mike Johnson with the New 52 relaunch of Supergirl. No details on potential networks are known.
The cousin of Superman, Kara Zor-El has had a presence in both live action and animation. The most infamous was the 1980s Supergirl, a spin-off of the Christopher Reeve Superman series starring Helen Slater. Additionally, an Easter egg in Man of Steel hinted strongly at Kara’s presence in the DC Cinematic Universe. While DC has been adamant about keeping its movie and television characters separate, perhaps Supergirl can appear in a Man of Steel sequel before being spun off into her own series?
In the meantime, however, keep this news with a pinch of salt. Bleeding Cool has been reliable in the past, but they reported last year that The CW was developing a Young Justice series, which has no other substantiation. That and other misfires mean that this news shouldn’t be taken as fact for the time being. Stay tuned for more as we have it.
