There are two things that stick out in my memory about the original Supergirl movie. First, Helen Slater was super-foxy. Second, the movie itself was a piece of crap. However, with the success of Batman Begins, and the same all but guaranteed for Superman Returns, talk of a new Supergirl film is very much a reality, and The Post Chronicle, has compiled a report that has Mischa Barton as the current favourite choice to play Supergirl in another big screen outing.
In recent news, the lovely Mischa's career is looking to the heights, as she is apparently at the top of a list of candidates to bring Supergirl back to the big screen,
"If Superman Returns does as well as expected this summer then Supergirl will be pushed into the schedule," reveals one movie insider. "There are a few actresses in the reckoning and Mischa is at the top of that list."
I don't know about anyone else, but I've got some serious reservations about Mischa Barton as Supergirl. Sure she's hot, and I'm sure she would fill out the costume nicely, but she has only ever played a victim (perpetually so on The O.C.), and I just can't see her as a commanding presence in the role of Supergirl. There are a ton of hot, blonde actresses in Hollywood who would be much better for the part. First on my list: Elisha Cuthbert. I don't think anyone can argue with that.
Here are a few pictures of Mischa Barton from Jane magazine, looking playful. Also, check out the fantasy picture of Elisha Cuthbert in the Supergirl outfit, as well as the original Supergirl, Helen Slater.
