This will be the year of Comic Book TV shows. We've had shows in the past, notably Wonder Woman, The Incredible Hulk, and Smallville. More recently we have Arrow and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. but this year we will see Gotham, Constantine, and The Flash join the fold. Netflix will premiere five shows available to stream from Marvel Television, Daredevil being the first in 2015 and then Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and eventually The Defenders. And now we're getting word that DC is shopping the idea of a Supergirl television show in the near future.
'Arrow' and 'The Flash' executive producer, Greg Berlanti along with Ali Adler (Chuck, Glee, No Ordinary Family) are said to be involved in the production of this new series and its expected to be shopped around all the networks very soon. It's also being reported that the potential series is NOT expected to go the CW where the Arrow/Flash Universe has been established.
Last we saw of the Last Daughter of Krypton on television, Laura Vandervoort portrayed Kara Zor-El on 'Smallville.' I thought she did a great job, however, the storyline wasn't great for the character. In 'Man of Steel' we got a small easter egg that might lead to her reveal in the DC Cinematic Universe (an open space pod in the Fortress of Solitude), which was played out a little more in the companion comic book to the film.
How do you guys feel about this show idea? Would you watch a Supergirl television show? Would you want it connected to the Arrow Universe? Do you think it will or should be attached to the DC Cinematic Universe? Per the norm, leave your comments below!
