Taylor Swift to Star in Supergirl Movie?

It's only an unsubstantiated rumor at this point, but Ireland On-Line is reporting that "a source" has revealed that pop country singer-songwriter Taylor Swift is being considered to play Supergirl in a new live-action movie supposedly in development.
A number of young stars are being mentioned for the title role in a Supergirl movie and possible TV spin-off and Taylor is top of that list. She has all the right elements to be a positive role model to young girls.
In the DC comic books, Supergirl's origin has changed many times, and she was even killed off at one point. As in earlier incarnations, the current comic book Supergirl is Kara Zor-El, the cousin of Superman and one of the last survivors of the doomed planet Krypton. Helen Slater played Kara Zor-El in the forgettable 1984 Supergirl movie, and Laura Vandervoort portrayed Supergirl on TV's Smallville.
