- The Flash wasted an opportunity to fully introduce Supergirl into the DC Extended Universe, leaving her character underdeveloped and overshadowed by other heroes.
- Supergirl’s limited screen time and lack of character development undermine her introduction, making her a glorified cameo rather than a significant part of the film.
- The Flash’s portrayal of Supergirl as a female version of Superman ignores the unique traits and backstories that distinguish the two characters, adversely affecting Supergirl’s history and potential impact.
Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers for The Flash.flash An epic tale of time travel, alternate worlds, and personal trauma, this is one of DC’s most ambitious films. Along the way, Supergirl is introduced (Sasha Kull) entered the DC Extended Universe, but squandered that opportunity by not making everything she could. Not that they completely ruined the character, but they didn’t give her the introduction to the world she deserved. Supergirl isn’t as popular as many of DC’s heroes, so she may be relatively unknown to general audiences. flash Not much to change it.
The problem lies in the story involving Supergirl flash, not an actress. Cal’s portrayal suited what she had to work with. But in reality, Supergirl isn’t as big a role as fans believe. The film has its time-travel antics, and while it’s the only time the character appears as this particular version, it left something to complain about. The film portrayed her as the female version of Superman, borrowing from her Superman plot and ignoring the differences between the two. While it’s exciting to see a new hero on screen rather than a reboot of a familiar character, this wasn’t the perfect introduction to Supergirl.
‘Flash’ isn’t about Supergirl
While it may seem obvious that Supergirl isn’t the main character, she doesn’t appear in most of the film, save for the climactic battle. While many heroes appear, flash, Some get more hours than others, but in the case of Supergirl, that ad was misleading. Looking at all the trailers, she seemed to be in a relatively important role, but in the movie she had some great action sequences and short appearances. She doesn’t appear until well into the story after Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) he finds himself trapped in a past that he has altered, and that it is very different from his world. Barry regains his former powers and finds Batman (Michael Keaton) before going in search of Supergirl.
When she is saved, Supergirl shows off her incredible powers, but doesn’t care if the humans are destroyed because they were never kind to her, and quickly leaves again. Clearly, her imprisonment resulted in trauma, not to mention the destruction of her world and the death of her entire family. But none of that is resolved and she has a quick change of heart and is ready to become a hero to the people of Earth. She sends Barry flying into a storm to restore his powers before confronting Zod (Michael Shannon). Her battle with the Kryptonian villain is her most memorable scene, but she is ultimately destined to fail and Kara Zor-El dies with Batman. Supergirl gets little focus as the emotional beat follows Barry.This is understandable since he’s the main character, but it’s still disappointing flash It will be the first time Supergirl has appeared in a movie in almost 40 years. She may be important to her final battle, but her character has little development and isn’t a very big role, which undermines her introduction.
This Supergirl probably won’t come back
The lack of focus on Supergirl could be forgiven if her short appearance set up big things for the character, but it doesn’t. This is her only chance to appear in this iteration, as the franchise is gearing up for her reboot.and James Gunn and Peter Saffron DC took the lead and got a new movie set called the DCU. Supergirl appears in this series, but not in this version. flash Deal with alternatives where Zod wins. It’s unclear if Cal will return, but whoever plays her will be a different Kara, and her character will be: flash A one-off person who was significantly underutilized.
Supergirl’s role in the story is small as it is her only appearance. flash While Keaton’s Batman could return and put an end to the long-running character, Supergirl has no history outside of the movies. Supergirl hasn’t appeared in many movies, so her character’s appearance is noteworthy in itself, but she’s a glorious cameo appearance that doesn’t come from any other content. There was no hope of expanding on the character, and the inclusion of Supergirl left something undesirable.
Why doesn’t Supergirl work on ‘The Flash’?
probably the worst part flashis that she isn’t actually Supergirl. This movie deals with an alternate timeline where Kal-El was killed before becoming Superman. Barry’s search for another version of her friend leads him to Carla.The plot is essentially replaced by man of steelRather than giving the character a traditional Supergirl story, it’s a mix of Superman and Supergirl. And that’s not all. It’s not just Supergirl being placed in another version. man of steel Although she fights, her entire story is adapted from some of Superman in particular. Superman: Red Sunwhere Superman’s pod lands in Russia, and flash point, It shows him trapped in a government facility.
flash Supergirl is a cousin’s ripoff, but the comic book version is clearly different. One of the reasons for separating the two is that Supergirl remembers the planet Krypton, but she doesn’t remember her cousin. The movie never touches on this point. Supergirl appeared to be still older than her cousin, but since she was sent to Earth to care for him, she seems to remember little about it. Since Supergirl’s last appearance, Superman has appeared in several movies, making this the perfect opportunity to highlight the differences between the two. But despite the widely known Superman story, flash Few things distinguish the two Kryptonian heroes. Supergirl isn’t as high-profile as her cousins, and presenting her as essentially a girl version of Superman would have a detrimental effect on her character and her history. This dark version is interesting, but it’s also a strange introduction to the character, as the hero is less commonly known. flash Despite what could have been Supergirl’s pivotal debut for a wider audience, it fell through.
