Every new bit of The Flash video has increased the anticipation for Sasha Calle’s debut as Supergirl, and it is now gotten realistic to envision how this new interpretation of the DC Comics hero will unfold in the movie.
The speedster is set to meet a wide range of new and returning DC characters thanks to The Flash’s examination of the multiverse, a subject that is now at the top of the popularity list for superhero ventures. The cast of The Flash features several Batman actors, including Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton in their respective roles as the Dark Knight, as well as Michael Shannon from Man of Steel repeating his role as General Zod and Calle making her acting debut as Supergirl. Calle’s Supergirl debut is eagerly awaited because she is the newcomer.
Sasha Calle’s Supergirl in The Flash
When Supergirl is initially introduced in The Flash, she will be seen in a challenging circumstance. Supergirl will start the film as a prisoner in what seems to be a Russian facility, as shown in The Flash’s first teaser. According to later shots in the teaser, the hero was most likely someplace in Siberia. Calle portrays “Kara” in the film, a reimagining of Kara Zor-El/Kara Danvers, the DC Comics character Supergirl. The actress, however, won’t be adapting a typical Supergirl plot for The Flash; instead, she’ll be stepping into Superman’s shoes in the comic book story that served as the inspiration for the film.
Compared to Calle’s Supergirl, Henry Cavill’s Superman led a completely different life. Kal-El was adopted by the Kents when he was a newborn and brought to Earth. His family helped him as he grew up to learn how to harness his powers, however, his father was concerned about how the outside world would view him. Calle’s Supergirl, however, will be taking control of Superman’s gritty Flashpoint narrative. Supergirl will have experienced a lonely upbringing after being discovered by the government, subjected to torturous experiments over the years, and separated from the sunshine that grants her powers.
Fans seem to dislike absence of Supergirl’s character arch
After seeing Supergirl directly being able to control her superpowers, fans feel the character lacks story. One user tweeted on Twitter saying
That’s cuz is the same as Zod and co. Products of futile culture trained to master senses, apply fighting capabilities, etc.
Clark was the opposite.

Another user brought up Zod’s history,
When Zod and the other kryptonians first came to earth, they all experienced pain and lack of understanding of how to use their abilities. It took Zod time to adjust. Kara would need way more time since she’s not genetically bred as a warrior her entire life, like Zod.

Another user argued how long it took Clark to figure out how to control his powers,
You’re forgetting the scene where Zod spends time outside of the ship and focuses squarely on his new abilities. For the audience, it took a few seconds on screen, but in movie world, he spent a while trying to hone his senses. It took Clark years.

Some are just not liking it at all,
This is really bad. Holy shit. People keep sharing scenes from this movie and I keep telling myself that it can’t get any worse than this, but it does…

Some talked about character development in cinema,
Character development is lost in today’s cinema. Directors and audiences seem to want fully developed, fully capable, static characters (especially Superman) who are perfect. Best case in point – Rey in the Disney Star Wars trilogy. Female Space Jesus from her first scene on.

Another user called it “unrealistic”
Instantly being able to use superpowers?! Talk about UNREALISTIC! Everyone knows in THE REAL WORLD you have to train your superpowers first! Duh!!

The trolling continues, and it appears some fans are not very fond of what DC has become and their opinion on the beloved movie stirred this huge online debate. However, some fans are also supportive of the narrative of the movie saying that its too soon to judge
