Over the last few years, Supergirl has been getting a lot of attention on screen thanks to her TV series on The CW, but yesterday it was announced that Kara Zor-El might be heading back to theaters in the near future. More than three decades after the Helen Slater-led Supergirl movie was released, it was reported that Warner Bros and DC have a new Supergirl movie in the works, with Oren Uziel penning the script. The DC Extended Universe's Kara was previously depicted in the Man of Steel prequel comic book, but that's not necessarily canon anymore, so it's anyone's guess what this version of Kara is actually like on the silver screen.

Like most of the DCEU projects in development, there's no guarantee just yet that the Supergirl movie will move from script into a full-blown production. That said, if it does get off the ground, here are some of the comic stories starring the Girl of Steel that make for good source material for this movie to use.

The Supergirl From Krypton

After she died during the Crisis on Infinite Earths event, Kara Zor-El only appeared sporadically in the DC universe until 2004, when she was reintroduced in the Superman/Batman series. In this continuity, rather than their familial relationship just being a cover, Supergirl and Superman were actually biological cousins, and when she landed on Earth, not only did Kal-El help her acclimate to Earth, she was also mentored by (an initially distrustful) Batman and Wonder Woman. This tale was previously adapted into the 2010 animated movie Superman/Batman Apocalypse, and while a completely faithful adaptation probably wouldn't work for the big screen given that it'd be difficult for Batman and Wonder Woman to be involved, as long as Henry Cavill's Superman is at least around, with some creative shifting, this could serve as a cool origin story for Kara.
