DC TV Classics 49 – Supergirl

Author: No Comments Share:

This week on DC TV Classics, Keith Chow and Adam Starcaster analyze the first incarnation of an extended DC Universe, 1984’s Supergirl. Directed by Jeannot Szwarc, the Salkinds attempted to broaden the universe created in the Christopher Reeve Superman movies by exploring the adventures of his “cousin” Kara Zor-El. Starring Helen Slater in the title role and Faye Dunaway — as the villainous witch Selena, Supergirl failed to meet the box office heights of its predecessors. Despite its box office struggles, the movie will go down in history as the first mainstream female superhero film, paving the way for current franchises like Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel, as well as the Maiden of Might’s own hit television series!
