The recent trailer of the upcoming The Flash movie has fans buzzing with excitement, but also with confusion.

James Gunn’s Version of Supergirl

The confusion surrounding Sasha Calle‘s role in The Flash movie has brought attention to the upcoming movie Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, which is a part of James Gunn’s DCU Chapter 1.

Gunn has described the movie as being a completely new and separate take on the character of Supergirl. In a recent statement, Gunn described Supergirl as follows:

“Within our story, we have Superman, who was sent to Earth and raised by incredibly loving parents and nurtured, whereas Kara was in Krypton, she was on a piece of Krypton that drifted away from the planet, and lived there for the first 14 years of her life among [a] horrible situation where she watched everybody around her die. So she’s a much harsher and more fuc*ed up Supergirl than we’ve been used to this far.”

The harsher and more “fuc*ed up” version of Supergirl described by James Gunn is a departure from the traditional portrayal of the character and has fans excited to see what he has in store for the upcoming movie. But his description of Supergirl in DC does not seem to match with Sasha Calle’s portrayal of supergirl in The Flash.
