5 Actresses To Play Supergirl In The DC Cinematic Universe

3 of 6


If Heard were five years younger, she’d be a fan favorite. She has the look that is closely linked to the comic book character. To me, it seems like Heard was born to play the part. While she hasn’t had the best of success with her film choices (both Drive Angry and Rum Diary were big commercial flops), she’s very talented. I believe she would be able to wipe away the shame of the disaster that was Supergirl of 1984. The only issue with this casting is her age. Kara-Zor El is young, and Heard is pushing 30. However, if they wanted a Woman of Steel who appeared more seasoned, this is someone the producers should call.
