    She should, realistically, resemble her cousin just a little bit so this is a good casting in my book. I would kinda hope she goes for a lighter hair color, but it won't bother me if they do a change-up and go with a straight brunette look.

    Curious if she'll be a teen or an adult. The actress is 26, but looking at her she could pull of movie/tv-teenager easily.

    It was great put to the Krypton theme! Look forward to the fan art till we get a real look.

    Interesting casting, opting for a brunette. Honestly I never understood why she was blonde in the first place but I'm not white so I can't speak on the workings of genetics. All the best to the actress.

    This Flash movies seems to be all over the place, and I don't know this actor but hope it goes well. Guess Superman and Supergirl might actually be trading places in the big screen and the small screen. Still weird that Cavill is the only actor that seems to be completely out, no idea why. Even Affleck's back.

    WB's terrified of Superman as a concept now because they just don't get it. They keep screwing him up, so they think its the character's fault and are moving on to something else while still being able to capitalize on the S. I have no doubt its for similar reasons that the comics are going in the direction they're going in too.

    That said, I'm not holding this against the Supergirl character or this actress. Maybe something cool comes of this just so long it remains divorced from the Snyderverse and develops into its own thing like WW did.

    I might be wrong but Supergirl's mom Allura is blonde. In any case, I think the blond hair gene can skip a generation. And God knows how it all works for Kryptonians anyway

    Anyway, she definitely looks like Supergirl to me...I think she can play a Kara in her late teens or early twenties easily enough.

    But I am curious now about The Flash...will Supergirl have a role similar to Superman in Flashpoint? Or to Cyborg, replacing him as the leading hero of another timeline/world? Is Superman going to be in the movie?

    Does the Flash movie still have the Multiverse angle to it? If so we don't know if she'll be from the main Earth or a different one.

    yeah you're probably right. While Its silly to me, that all the things that make the concept a tough sell, that they think using a female version is the key to cracking the code. But yeah after Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel hit a billion, i guess maybe i can't blame them.

    Pretty sure she won’t be from the same Earth as Cavill if she’s debuting in the Flash given that’s going hard on the Multiverse angle. Might be this new Supergirl will be the gateway to rebooting Superman, the initial Supergirl movie rumors said they were looking at casting an entirely new Superman to go alongside her. I hope they make Superman Latino too then.

    Edit: Oh hell I just remembered: Aren’t they planning to replace Affleck with Keaton and have him mentor Batgirl in a new movie? WB might be planning on replace the Trinity with their young female counterparts. A New Trinity of Kara, Barbara, and probably Yara for the films.

    Who would make a good latino Superman? Oscar Issac?

    Didn't Melissa Benoist dye her hair to play Kara? I'd like to hope this actress would do the same.

    But I guess actors aren't expected to change their hair to match the character anymore.

    Too old. Dispenser would love that but it’s not what I want. I want a Latino playing THIS Superman:


    So cast someone young and have them be Superman alongside this Supergirl.
