Director Andy Muschietti posted the first look of the costume on Instagram
Supergirl fans have a new reason to smile, with director Andy Muschietti posting another sneak peek into the highly-anticipated film The Flash. This time, the filmmaker revealed the first look of Supergirl's costume. Sasha Calle will play Superman's cousin in the Flashpoint comic-inspired movie.
The director took to Instagram to post the first look of Supergirl. The costume shares an uncanny resemblance with Henry Cavill's suit, featuring the symbol of hope forged in Krypton's language (that debuted back in Man of Steel). However, the major difference between the two is a large red patch that separates Kara Zor-El from her popular relative, Kal El.
Fans, including some famous ones, chimed in on the reactions to the red, gold, and blue costume. The Suicide Squad director James Gunn shared some love for his fellow DC director with a celebration emoji while Pitch Perfect's Alexis Knapp commented on the image with not one, but two fire emojis.
Supergirl doesn’t have a big role in the Flashpoint storyline that inspired this film, but the comic series did feature an emaciated Superman who was locked away for decades. As per reports, this could be the part that the new Supergirl plays in this adaptation.
The yet-to-release standalone film (The Flash) takes inspiration from the Flashpoint Paradox arc from the comics. Micheal Keaton's old batman suit was previewed in a post on Muschietti's Instagram earlier this month. Now that Muschietti has dropped teasers for the first three heroes in The Flash, rumours suggest that Ben Affleck’s Batman will be his next preview.
Ron Livingston and Maribel Verdú will also co-star in The Flash as Barry Allen’s parents, Henry Allen and Nora Allen. Also, Kiersey Clemons will reprise her role as Iris West from Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
The Flash is scheduled to hit theatres on November 4, 2022.
