A Supergirl movie appeared in 1984. In it, Helen Slater played Supergirl, and asked the immortal question:
"What's a dingleberry?"
Finally, 22 years nigh, we have our answer. Dingleberries are the Hollywood idjits who are already aiming to milk the Superman flick for all it's worth. Hooray for easy money and bad movies! That's what DVD players were made for.
A new Supergirl movie . . . starring somebody from The O.C.? Surely Helen Slater will save us.
A report on WebIndia.com notes a popular rumor that, amid the hubbub surrounding Superman Returns, that the movie folk want to go ahead and cash in, and make a new Supergirl movie, too.
I think a Faye Dunaway quote from the immortal 1984 film Supergirl is in order.
"I am a bitter, bitter pill to swallow."
And they want Mischa Barton, who plays Marissa on The O.C., to play the Cousin of Steel.
I like that show a lot. My favorite one was when the popular girl dated the rebel, and they went to that restaurant, and there was his ex-girlfriend.
Wait -- that was Beverly Hills 90210. Or was it?
(Supposedly the character Seth on the show is a big comics fan. And that's good. I still don't have to watch, as far as I know.)
Jayme Blaschke says, "I'd love to see a good Supergirl movie. Helen Slater was actually as close to perfect casting as you could get for Kara. Unfortunately, the Salkinds used the same anti-Midas touch on Supergirl as they did on Superman III and IV.
If Bryan Singer is associate producer, and they really do tie it to the Superman Returns universe, then it could be pretty darn good. But Mischa Barton? I actually think she's a decent young actress, but wrong, wrong, wrong for Supergirl. Or Wonder Woman. She might make a cute Jesse Quick, if the Flash movie ever comes to fruition."
Yeah! I'm not seeing the Supergirl. Maybe her Krypton nemesis who's wired from guzzling too much Red Bull. (Which of course, is brewed on a planet with a red sun. Duh.)
Hey, there are about 78 terrible blonde singers on American Idol. Maybe they can act.
