Okay so I’ve seen people saying this is Supergirl and I am 100% on board if this is true.
Given I highly Doubt those are Henry’s legs and there’s also that very small bit of possible blonde hair in the top left corner I am convinced.
But i think the biggest clue is the look on Bruce’s face, that is the face of a man who realises he has two Kryptonians to deal with now.
I know people have pointed out that if that is Kara then why does Steppenwolf say there are no Kryptonians to protect earth in the trailer? Well I believe Kara is still in hiding so Steppenwolf is unaware of her presence on earth and i think Bruce’s dialog in the new trailer sheds some light on the situation.
Throughout the trailer Bruce says the following lines:
“Each of us in some way has held back”
If Kara has been hiding on Earth since the events of the prequel comic she, like kal did, has most likely been holding back her power and is trying to live a normal life and not draw attention to herself.
“Superman was a beacon to the world, he didn’t just save people, he made them see the best parts of themselves”
Who better to inspire Kara to see the best parts of herself and become a beacon to the world that can make a difference than a fellow Kryptonian and (if she knows) her cousin?
then there’s the interaction between Jimbo and Bruce:
“How many of you are there?” “Not enough”
Which to me is not only a reference to the ever expanding and changing justice league roster but could be hinting that the last daughter of Krypton might not be the only character tease we get
In conclusion I believe this scene where Bruce is looking at Kara’s hologram takes place at the end of the film and it’s purpose is to set up her much bigger role in the Man of Steel / Justice League sequels and maybe tease some other characters as well.
So long story short if this is Supergirl the question remains……Who’s playing her?
And then it hit me
Katheryn Winnick is set to make a big announcement at SDCC about joining a new project.
And i know everyone wants her to play Black Canary (myself included) and she’s expressed interest in playing her but what if she’s playing the Girl of Steel?
This is not the first time her and Supergirl’s names were tossed in the same ring as back in August 2013 she responded to a tweet that had fancasted her as Kara with the response “Hmm..might be fun fighting Henry Cavill again”
Given the events of the Man of Steel prequel comic I wouldn’t be surprised if the DCEU Kara Zor El is a little older than what we’re used to but honestly i think she could do the role justice (pun absolutely intended)
Well anyway that’s my theory and i hope that really is Kara being teased at the end and she’s not the only hero they have in store for us
“My status remains what it always is,” the star explains. “I’ve done the two movies. I’ve always intended on doing a third if Warners wants to make it. Certainly, if the Batphone rings, I will answer.”
He blames some of the reports on his decision to step down from directorial duties on The Batman, which occurred in January of this year. “It’s such a big job, in terms of the stunts and the suit and the action and the character. Trying to do that, and direct, would probably be too much. Something would be compromised. I think it came off, optically, to the broader world, like lack of interest or enthusiasm. When in fact I love this character.”
Affleck also broadcast his support for the studio’s choice of director for The Batman. “I think getting Matt Reeves to come in and do it is really, really exciting,” he says. Rumors have swirled that the War for the Planet of the Apes filmmaker wants to use The Batman as a springboard to a trilogy. Says Affleck, “Matt hasn’t really unveiled his full vision yet. He wanted to wait until Apes came out, and he was obviously consumed with that. So I’m looking forward to hearing what his story is.”
This will be Affleck’s second starring role as the Caped Crusader (Affleck also did what he called a “walk-on” in last year’s Suicide Squad) and it’s the latest product of his longtime collaboration with Warner Bros., which dates back to his acclaimed crime thriller The Town.
“Warners has been working on it, making sure we’re getting it right. That’s the partnership you definitely want. With Wonder Woman, they really hit a home run. With [Justice League], I think we’ve found the tone, and found the flavor of it,” he says.
“I’d love to do it as long as they’ll have me,” he concludes. “Eventually it’ll be somebody else, and I’m sure they’ll get somebody great. But while I’m doing it, I’m going to do the best job I can, and really appreciate how lucky I am.”
