Taylor Swift Supergirl Rumor Debunked
01.05.10 by BJSprecher
The news that pop country singer-songwriter Taylor Swift might be up for the role of Kara Zor-El, the cousin of Superman, in a planned Supergirl movie seemed pretty far-fetched when it was first reported by Ireland On-Line. It seemed an especially strange move for DC Entertainment since company head Diane Nelson had said they did not have "any current plans" for another Superman movie.
Apparently, the news was as outlandish as it sounded. A DC Comics spokesperson was recently asked by Scotland's Sunday Mail if Swift would be donning the classic red-and-blue tights in a live-action movie and the unidentified rep scoffed at the rumor.
That's as clueless a thing as we've heard all year.
Sorry, comic book movie fans. If you're just itching to see Supergirl in live action, you can always hope for a return of Laura Vandervoort as Supergirl on TV's Smallville.
