The week couldn’t start of better if we didn’t have a wild speculation into a casting of a film that is also a rumour.
Seems the intarwebz are all a buzz with talks of Taylor Swift as Supergirl.
Hollyscoop reports that country music star Taylor Swift is in talks to headline a planned Supergirl reboot at Warners. An unnamed insider states, “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
Ok, first thing. I like Taylor Swift, and she sure is a whole lot of pretty. I think she would make a staggering pinup poster of Supergirl, and if they do a poster of that… yes. I am in. She would look amazing.
But I just DESPISE it when they give lead roles to singers. Singers are not actors. Swift might look hot in that skimpy Supergirl outfit, but I would sooner an ACTOR be given the lead role.
But honestly, do we really think they are making a Supergirl movie? The first Supergirl adaptation came around as the result of the popular Superman franchise. Ok, it sucked hard, but it only happened because there was some Superman buzz.
WB can’t even get their shit together to make a new Superman film. However with the copyright bull they are going through with the Estate of the Superman Heirs, Supergirl (though inspirired by) is entirely a DC/WB product. There may be more luck getting this to happen than Big Blue.
