Get ready for even more feminist think pieces, because Deadline is reporting that Supergirl will join Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, and Batgirl on DC’s film slate. The property has been a small-screen hit for WB under the stewardship of Greg Berlanti over at the CW, and now 22 Jump Street screenwriter Oren Uziel has been brought on to pen a big-screen script for the character. There are few other details at this time, but Deadline speculates that a Supergirl stand-alone might be a convenient place to launch a new Superman, depending on how the studio’s future looks with current Man of Steel, Henry Cavill. This will be the first film treatment for Kal-El’s fellow Kryptonian since 1984’s Supergirl, which featured Helen Slater in the titular role, and a not-to-shabby surrounding cast that included Peter O’Toole, Faye Dunaway, and Mia Farrow.
