Sasha Calle took up the role of Supergirl in Ezra Miller’s The Flash, replacing Henry Cavill in the spotlight as the only Kryptonian in DC’s movie universe.

“Absolutely, are you kidding me? I love her so much and I feel her very deeply. I think this movie was a runway to a better story for her.” When asked about her own movie, “I just want to dive deeper into Kara and her feelings into her day-to-day. I would just love to see her in regular clothes, in human clothes. As a fan, the whole time that I was filming, I kept thinking, ‘What would she wear? What glasses would she wear?'”

DC Studios co-CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran even had plans for a movie for the character, which would have been titled Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow. The actress went on to explain that she would like to see Kara in a different light than we did in Miller’s movie, stating that she wants her to be much more mundane and see her in a day-to-day setting.

Will Supergirl Return To DC After The Flash’s Ending?

An inside source has revealed that after the cancellation of the Batgirl movie, the possibility of the Supergirl movie moving forward was very slim. This has been made more concrete with the ending of The Flash, where Sasha Calle’s Supergirl dies. So the chances of this particular variant of Kara Zor-El returning for her own movie are very slim.

However, it would seem that Supergirl will still have a place in this new DCEU where James Gunn and Peter Safran are in charge, just not with Sasha Calle playing her. Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is still scheduled in the first chapter of the DCEU, Gods and Monsters. Executives in charge of this movie have stated that they are figuring out who they would like to play the character. Casting for Superman: Legacy has already started however so it would seem that they will also bring in a new Supergirl.
