After the first three Christopher Reeve-starring "Superman" movies, producers spun off "Supergirl" into a 1984 film directed by Jeannot Szwarc and written by David Odell. Kara Zor-El was also sent off in a rocket as Krypton exploded, but instead of being sent straight to Earth she was stuck in suspended animation for a few decades. Supergirl adopted the secret identity of orphan Linda Lee and made Midvale Orphanage her home.

Supergirl is DCEU-bound! Deadline is reporting that Warner and DC are developing a new Supergirl movie, with the acquisition of screenwriter Oren Uziel, who's now working on the live-action video game adaptation movie, Sonic the Hedgehog, coming off scripts for The Cloverfield Paradox, Shimmer Lake, Freaks of Nature and 22 Jump Street.

Despite a string cast featuring Faye Dunaway, Peter O'Toole and Mia Farrow, the film was a critical and commercial failure. Warner and DC are adding more to their plate with a Supergirl film, totally reinforcing the DC Films image of trying to bite off more than they can chew. Aquaman and Shazam are coming soon, having just released their trailers at SDCC.
