Does Greg Berlanti Have a Supergirl TV Show in the Works?

He’s already got Arrow and The Flash, but a report just surfaced claiming that Greg Berlanti plans to move on to Supergirl next.  The project is still in development, but apparently Warner Bros. TV is already on board to produce it alongside Berlanti Productions.

The show is said to be a “new interpretation” of the character and her story.  Ali Adler (The New Normal, No Ordinary Family) will likely pen the script and Geoff Johns will be involved as well, but there’s no word on what his role will be just yet.  Hit the jump for more on the planned Supergirl TV show.

supergirl-comicAs reported by Deadline, the show doesn’t have a name yet, but Berlanti and his team are considering options that would need to be cleared like Super and Girl.  The next step is to pitch the idea to the major networks, similar to what WBTV and DC just did with Gotham, which found a home at Fox.

There’s also a rumor floating around via Bleeding Cool that DC Comics is pitching a Supergirl TV series with Michael Green (Heroes, Smallville) attached to write and produce, but according to the Deadline piece, Green isn’t involved at all.  However, now we’ve got E! reporting that he is, so who knows for sure?  Although, considering his success with Arrow (and many other shows), it seems that something with Berlanti at the helm would be more likely to happen.

Here’s a description of the character via DC Comics:

Teenager Kara Zor-el was rocketed to Earth from the dying planet Krypton. Faced with an entire world completely unrecognizable from the one she grew up in, she’s the ultimate new girl in school—with a planet-splitting right hook.  A lonely girl with astounding might, she struggles to find her identity on her new reluctant home.

As the most powerful teenager on the planet, the Girl of Steel possesses all of Superman’s powers—from superhuman strength, speed, and invulnerability all the way down to his flight and enhanced senses.  Still learning to control her awesome powers and lacking her cousin’s self-restraint, she may even be more dangerous than the Man of Steel.  Disconnected from a world she’s still struggling to comprehend, she’ll find non-stop action and violence from her first minute on this planet.

    sigh i don’t know why i just can’t bring myself to like the way CW does Superhero shows,

    • Jack Dennis

      That’s fine ,but they haven’t found a network yet.

    • Lovecraftlives

      I don’t know either, so leave!

    • MCP

      My thoughts are the same, I hope if this does go through. Then they decided NOT to go on CW. Can’t watch the Arrow or Flash on that station, geared towards 15 year old women or something…

        This is nothing but a consolation prize for Supergirl fans. Screw the WB!

    I HOPE THEY LEARN FROM HISTORY:

    I don’t know either women’s real names, but on Smallville Lois Lane was a way better actor and Lois also was way hotter than the girl who played Supergirl. Which is why Supergirl vanished from the show while Lois Lane went on to be a regular. Both were guest stars. As a matter of fact Supergirl was in the opening credits for one season.

    Lois on Smallville vs Supergirl:
    -Lois had more character depth
    -Lois had a bubble but when Supergirl had a flat but
    -Lois had big breasts when Supergirl was boarder line flat
    -BIGGEST OF ALL, LOIS HAD AN ACTUAL PERSONALITY

    The only fanboys who liked that Supergirl were desperate virgins who just got turned on by a second rate skinny blonde, which there are millions of skinny blondes out there. I hope they go for someone hot this time and for someone who can bring character depth (that can actualy act)

      I dont agree with alot of your points but i will say lois was way better all around in every category

      This is a new Supergirl, not the Smallville version. Get a grip, it will be done by the same people who brought of Arrow and the Flash. It’s going to be good!

      Supergirl was already in her own film long before that Smallville crap! Film wasn’t great, but it had its moments.

    Keeping fingers crossed that this isn’t a YA crap and on the lines of Arrow.

    • Your_Mama1

      This will suck. Berlanti doesn’t deserve to have his untalented, white hands on this beautiful character who has so much potential. How can this show possibly work without Kal-El? Idiotic. WB isn’t going to let them have Clark so what’s the point? Have some balls and put her in the cinematic universe, not on some crappy television show where they can’t even afford decent special effects.

      Film is where the big boys play, nobody wants to be stuck on a crappy television show playing the same character for years with evermore contrived story-lines.
