More than three decades after she first took flight on the big screen, Supergirl may be preparing to take a return.

WHO DO YOU THINK should play Supergirl in the upcoming movie?

8 months ago, Warner Bros. put Walter Hamada in charge of comic book movies, reportedly looking for more quality control over its films in the superhero genre.

The character has been played by Melissa Benoist in the titular CW series that's heading into its fourth season, and is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. No major producers, aside from Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, have been named in conjunction with the developing film. Supergirl adopted the secret identity of orphan Linda Lee and made Midvale Orphanage her home.

So there is optimism instead of dread at the idea of a new Supergirl movie, which is apparently happening now. (Disclosure: The CW is a joint venture between Warner Bros. and CBS, parent company of CNET.) In the upcoming season 4, which premieres October 14., she battles superpowered enemies and deals with her own Russian doppelganger. The Supergil film will be part of the studio's DC cinematic universe which includes Man of Steel, Suicide Squad, and Justice League. When the town is doomed, Kara is sent to Earth by her parents to be raised by her cousin Kal-El, known as Superman.

Supergirl also gets to fight alongside Superman in The CW live-action TV series. DC has failed to match the popularity of Marvel's films.

There is no official word on when the Supergirl movie for Warner Bros. goes into production or will be released in theaters.
