Could Supergirl be getting Powergirl as well as an adversary

Believe it or not Melissa Benoist may not have been the original choice to don the cape and become the girl of steel, Gemma Atkinson (Emmerdale, Strictly Come Dancing) was rumored to have read for the part.

Now this hasn’t been proven 100% but the British actress has now shared some very nice fan-art that makes a lot of people including us here at the Trusty Sidekick believe she’d be a pretty solid choice to Kara’s alternate universe counterpart, Power Girl.

Check out the tweet below and let us know would you like to see Gemma in the role.

We Have A Teaser Look Of A Costumed Hero On Supergirl

It seems that Supergirl is officially getting another member to her team. Well it is a member that we knew was coming and now it’s a little more official.

On the television series’ own Twitter account, the network debuted an official poster teasing Mon-El’s Legion of Super-Heroes look. He also has his very own Legion flight ring. It appears that Mon-El (played by Chris Wood) we look very different from what we know of in the comic books.

In the comics, Mon-El is known to wear a costume similar to Superman’s, but with the colors inverted. His outfit is predominated by red with a blue cape, and a much smaller “S” crest on the left side of his chest. But they switched it up for the television series. Mon-El will be wearing a suit heavy on the dark blues, with only hints of red and gold on the chest portion. From what we can see it appears that he will have Kryptonian House of El logo in a bigger form. In a recent promo we see that the Legion will play a significant part in the second half of the season.

Supergirl returns Monday, January 15th on The CW.

Expect A Different Type Of Wonder Woman Film Second Time Around

wonder-woman-1-1475246469

Wonder Woman 2 will be a “totally different” film from its predecessor. This is what was said recently by director Patty Jenkins when it comes to the highly successful blockbuster film Wonder Woman. Now Patty Jenkins has followed up her remarks with a bit more information at the Palm Springs Film Festival.  Also teased a possible appearance by Wonder Woman television star Lynda Carter while speaking with ET Canada.

“We’re actually making a totally different film with a lot of the same, similar like things that we love, but it’s its own movie completely, so it’s not ‘two’ to us,” she explained. “It’s an entirely new adventure together that we couldn’t be luckier [to do].”

Wonder Woman 2 is set to go into production later on this year for a 2019 release. We do not know much yet about the film except that Jenkins has already said that there will be new characters and even a new love interest. Jenkins has insisted that she indeed has been attempting to get former Wonder Woman (Carter) to share the screen with the current Princess (Gadot), however nothing is confirmed.

“Lynda is one of the dearest people to us, has been a great mentor and dear friend. And we actually desperately tried to get her in the first one and we had the scheduling that couldn’t work, so she’s always been a part of our Wonder Woman family,” she shared. “We won’t say anything yet, but we certainly — there’s no lack of trying.”

 

Carter was at the premiere for Wonder Woman last year to support Jenkins and star Gal Gadot, she also notably came to the defense of Patty Jenkins when  Titanic director James Cameron criticized the film. Carter has been slowly integrating her way back into the DC universe as President Olivia Marsdin on The CW’s Supergirl.

Wonder Woman 2 arrives in theaters on November 1, 2019.

Supergirl and Legends Of Tomorrow To Give Us A Break In 2018!

All of the CW Arrowverse shows are currently on their winter break, and when they come back, expect some changes to scheduling, as Supergirl and Legends Of Tomorrow will fill the 8pm time slot on Mondays from January 15 through June 18, thus giving Black Lightning (which premieres on January 16th) room to shine on Tuesdays after The Flash, and giving us one less CW show to have to cover every week (whew!) The schedule is a little janky, but we break it down below.

From Monday, January 15 to February 5th, we’ll get 4 new episodes of Supergirl. Then from February 12th to April 9th, we’ll get 9(!) episodes of Legends, concluding with it’s season finale on the 9th. Finally, Supergirl returns for 10 episodes, culminating in the season finale on June 18th. From the way that lineup works, I expect Kara to see more trouble than success over the next 4 episodes. What do you think? Let us know!
