Warner Bros. Launch Supergirl Merchandise, Movie To Follow?

Warner Bros. Launch <em>Supergirl</em> Merchandise, Movie To Follow?

It would certainly seem so. Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. is going to use Supergirl as a commercial alternative to Disney's popular princess line..

The studio is teaming with JCPenney to start a brand of clothing that "prominently features the S-shield" on "T-shirts, dresses, dancewear, and other apparel." Olympic medalist Nastia Liukin will be the face of the brand, while also pushing "a message of empowerment." As well as that, the studio has just launched a "Nastia Liukin Supergirl Cup" which will honor rising gymnast stars.

This has not as yet been accompanied by any movie plans for the wee lass, but it can only be a matter of time. Disney are all about the princesses, and since Warners and DC Entertainment are following suit with Marvel's connected universe, its likely they will use Supergirl as a counter to Disney's more kiddie friendly princess type fare.

Other than the pretty bad(but not quite as terrible as you might remember) 80's movie starring Helen Slater, the closest we have heard about any kind of reboot has been the rumors circling back in December regarding Taylor Swift. They turned out to be bull, but providing this gear gets the little uns exited and they get Mommy to shell out some cash, I guarantee it won't be long before a movie goes into production.

Can't wait to have kids so i can shower them in superhero gear...
RorMachine - 3/23/2010, 9:29 AM
haha, I'm going to assume the actual gear won't be quite as..porny as Supergirl's preferred outfits!..or at least, I hope not. But for the movie I'm thinking something like this..

Ranger14 - 3/23/2010, 9:34 AM
Ror@ Now THAT is super! ;-)
ThunderCougarFalconBird - 3/23/2010, 9:39 AM
Multi - I second that!

Supergirl clothing ranges have been around for years, I should know, I've been wearing them!

Seriously though, costumes and regular clothing with the Supergirl emblem have never left our stores so a new range doesn't really mean much.

Still, this is a good cue for teabag and his boob pics!

Supergirl should NEVER have her own movie. She fits in nicely in Sup's universe but not on her own. ESPECIALLY when WONDER WOMAN should be the first female to hit the big screen!!!
THEHAWK - 3/23/2010, 10:07 AM
Makes me glad I don't have kids! more stuff to but lol

Supergirl is a cool character, but she can't carry her own film, maybe a spinoff after a couple of appearances in Superman movies, but i don't see her having a solo film.

Hey Everyone! Speaking of blondes. Check out my new short story in fan fic

Ghosts of Yesterday (Featuring Zatanna and Question)

It features Zatanna and the Question teaming up to stop the ghost of a rapist that has an obsession with one young blonde girl.

It is unlike anything I have ever written, it is a twisting emotional tale. I recommend you check it out!

Supergirl movie would be Cool but think about this, if they make one it would be geared towards the little ladies they would be marketing the clothing towards. So there for it might be a lame ass movie, more of a kids movie but we all know that we would all watch it!!!
DarkWebs - 3/23/2010, 10:24 AM
@ Teabag we can always rely on you to supply us with plenty of BOOBS!! ha haaaa BOOBS ROCK
ThunderCougarFalconBird - 3/23/2010, 10:29 AM

dav1dca1n - 3/23/2010, 10:32 AM

LEEE777 - 3/23/2010, 10:40 AM

Or Brunette??

........... who cares! : P
ThunderCougarFalconBird - 3/23/2010, 10:46 AM
dav1dca1n - You could say I know her, she's my daughter! So no, it is no joke. She is stronger than anyone I know.
thegreek - 3/23/2010, 10:47 AM

JoshWilding - 3/23/2010, 10:48 AM

You're daughter's definitely Supergirl in my book, Ron!!! How is she doing btw?
ecksmanfan - 3/23/2010, 10:55 AM
I could see this idea working for a toon on Disney or even a weekly show like Hannah Montana, but a full movie? Nah.

ThunderCougarFalconBird - 3/23/2010, 11:06 AM
teabag - I promise I won't manipulate it this time.

Shaman - Not too bad thanks bud. She now has a back brace to wear that's taking some getting used to. It's not nice but it's better than the alternative, a massive spinal operation! We're just glad the brace seems to be doing it's job and holding the operation off for a while.
BLADE44 - 3/23/2010, 11:19 AM
We really need to be more careful with our comments
if someone post a pic of a child I'd assume the person at the very least knows them.

RON: I pray that your little girl gets better and I'd
say she's quite SUPER also .Im sure she has to deal
with alot...I understand I have a family member dealing with some medical issues.

Now yea Supergirl I'd love to see her appear somewhere
just not sure she's interesting enough to carry her own.
I'd be willing to give it a try if someone put something together...who would you guys cast to play her?
LuckyKyd - 3/23/2010, 11:33 AM
IMO Supergirl isn't really strong enough to carry her own movie(No pun intended), but if it happens I say give it to Michael Bay, finally a movie where the source material would actually grant him a female lead with big boobs, skanky outfits and some massive bad boy bashing!! lol...

...Just kidding by the way ;)

@Ron: She sure looks like a fighter, you are very blessed to have a supergirl like her in your life bud.
A7 - 3/23/2010, 11:41 AM
I know what kind of action i'd like to see in a supergirl movie.
InstigatorGIRL - 3/23/2010, 11:59 AM
If they are going to have a Supergirl movie then it needs to be after Superman has a few successful movies and after she is introduced in a Superman movie. Even still I don't think it would work but I think they should do a cartoon starring her.
Here's my supergirl Rebekah!

Shaman - 3/23/2010, 12:04 PM
Ron- Glad to know the brace is doing it's job! Hopefully she'll get used to it faster than we think.

InstigatorGIRL- DUDE!!! That's totally the same dinet set my kids have!!! LOL One element makes boiling sounds, the other grills LOL ;P But the damn oven door kinda jams :(
InstigatorGIRL - 3/23/2010, 12:08 PM
@Shaman lol. Yep she got that for Christmas from her Grandma. Daddy and I got her the little quad in the back. lol. Yeah that kitchen was a pain in the ass putting it together, but it was worth it because she loves playig with it.
InstigatorGIRL - 3/23/2010, 12:09 PM
@Stubby & Ron your daughters are adorable and beautiful. ^_^
AvengingAngel1022 - 3/23/2010, 12:59 PM

@Deadpool. Now you're talking!
ATOMbomb - 3/23/2010, 4:01 PM
My daughters are 2 and 4, they love superhero stuff I got my 4 year addicted to Batman. The have Batman and Superman Pjs..when they wear the Superman Pjs they act like they are flying and say look Dad I'm Supergirl. A Supergirl movie is useless but I would take them to see it.
rastaZen - 3/23/2010, 4:15 PM
