Will Taylor Swift be Kara Zor-El? (Ok so it’s a slow news day)
Rumors are running wild that Taylor Swift is in line to play the blond superhero in a short red cape and shorter skirt, Supergirl.
Hollyscoop is reporting that producers of the remake of Supergirl: The Love Story, a movie we haven’t heard a thing about, are very interested in Taylor Swift for the title role.

Hollywood producers are reportedly very interested in Taylor playing the Girl of Steel for the remake of the 1984 movie, which was actually a big flop at the box office.
Supergirl – alias Kara Zor-El – first appeared in comic books in 1959. Helen Slater played the role in the movie — a spin-off of the popular Superman film series, which starred Christopher Reeves.
An industry insider says, “Hollywood is short of female heroes and the time is right for a new Supergirl. A number of young stars are being mentioned for the title role in a Supergirl movie and possible TV spin-off and Taylor is top of that list. She has all the right elements to be a positive role model to young girls.”
