‘Supergirl: Woman Of Tomorrow’ Film In Development For DC
Superman will not be the only Kryptonian to headline James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Universe slate. Gunn announced that a feature film titled Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is in development.
First introduced in 1958’s Superman #123, the character was created by Otto Binder and Al Plastino. Kara Zor-El, the cousin of Superman, was the last survivor of Argo City, which was set adrift in space after the destruction of Krypton. As the city drifted towards Earth, it veered toward a swarm of meteorites. To save their daughter, Supergirl’s parents sent her in a rocket to Earth to be raised by her cousin Kal-El.
The movie is not only inspired by Tom King’s limited series of the same name, but the writer has also been involved in the project. According to Gunn, King has also had a part in developing the architecture of the new DC Universe.
Gunn explained that unlike Superman, who will appear in the film, Supergirl was not raised in a safe place like Earth. Instead, she grew up drifting through space, making her a harsher person than her cousin. The film will highlight this difference between the Girl and Man of Steel.
