Deadline is reporting that Supergirl will be the next DC property to get a movie in Warner Bros.’ latest attempt at massaging their superhero movies to be lighter and less dour. 

The movie is reportedly being penned by Oren Uziel, who was behind screenplays for the recent reboot of 21 Jump Street and the now-filming Sonic the Hedgehog

Supergirl, also known as Kara, was a Kryptonian that fled the planet as a teenager before its destruction, but remained in stasis until arriving on Earth. Her origin and personality have been finessed in different adaptations and by different writers and she played a pivotal role in Netherrealm Studio’s recent Injustice 2.

There is also a Supergirl show heading into season five as part of DC’s television universe, where the character is played by Melissa Benoist.

Last month, Warner Bros. indicated a new heading for DC movies with more comedic trailers for movies like Shazam and Aquaman.
