Taylor Swift to Play Supergirl?
The Grammy award winner may be in the running to star in a Supergirl movie and TV series.
That's right, rumor has it that studio bosses want Taylor Swift to portray Kara Zor-El, most commonly known as Supergirl, in a new live-action endeavor.
An unnamed source spoke with Undercover.com about the reason behind the possible casting choice:
"Hollywood is short of female heroes and the time is right for a new Supergirl."
"A number of young stars are being mentioned for the title role in a 'Supergirl’ movie and possible TV spin-off and Taylor is top of that list. She has all the right elements to be a positive role model to young girls."
Swift's only acting credit so far is from guest starring on Saturday Night Live. He first venture into feature films will be Valentine's Day, playing the role of Samantha Kenny.
The character of Supergirl first appeared in comic books in 1959. Actress Helen Slater portrayed the character in the 1984 'Supergirl’ movie, which was a critical and box office flop.
MPP - I think Taylor has tremendous talent as a singer, musician and songwriter. In my opinion, she's very attractive in a 'girl next door' kind of way. That being said, is this really the first major role that an unproven acting hopeful should take? Especially with a comic character that mainstream audiences aren't very familiar with? I don't think so. This would be the equivalent of casting a Backstreet Boy as Tony Stark.
