She'll make her debut in the Flash film(which has recently finally started filming) before possibly getting her own solo film.

"Calle also did a chemistry read with Flash star Ezra Miller."
That must have been the toughest part of the audition.
I hope security for her was provided.

Classic jawline, smoldering eyes. I Suspect she'll look quite iconic as a blonde.

I'm just surprised it wasn't a bald Chinese male.

Meh.

The only authoritative source on the character is the comics. And the 1984 movie and Smallville and SG TV (to the least extent of all) followed tradition. In the comics she's always been a young, naturally blonde female with blue eyes. Her shade of blonde varied from light to light golden to sunflower. 

But this actor's raven-black hair died to a light blonde? That'll keep her colorist busy. That's extreme. Roots would last about two days. She'd have to travel with her colorist, even between shooting and vacations, etc. But Jessica Alba pretty much pulled it off for Fantastic Four with a lot of work. Not an issue during shooting as hair and makeup is extensive anyway. 

But I wonder if they'll make her blonde at all?  

Or if so, just use a really good wig. I mean, the comics always had her wearing a mousy brown wig as Linda and her natural blonde as SG. Just reverse that. Makes no sense physically (wigs would get blown off), but this is CW.

And I have to admit that transformation from mousy brown to blonde along with revealing her costume was always breathtaking, but then I'm a sucker for blondes. 

But I think the wig thing might be over and one. I mean, Helen Slater did it, but Vandervoorte and Benoist didn't. 

But I wouldn't be at all surprised if her hair stays black and her eyes brown. 

But if Calle can convincingly own the role and combine a bit of Helen's naivette, a full bite of Laura's darkness and a couple of bites of Melissa's humor, that would be pretty awesome as a start. And hopefully she's good at projecting power when the need arises. That was one of my problems with Melissa. She went from too little to too much as she didn't understand the subteties of a "good" character having extreme power around ordinary people. The only place that really worked for her was in the first episode of the first season on CBS.

Twitter feed scroll shows she was interested in Spider Woman.  There is a halloween costume that is fun too.  Nice voice.  Intersting how much moody/edge there is in still pictures.  Cautious optomism.

Now the big question is are we getting Classic Supergirl, DCUO Supergirl, Injustice Supergirl, or something worse.  Let's hope the writters will not ruin it for her and us.  Cautious pesimism.

 Too true :P

Guessing that the iconic blonde hair and blue eyes are probably out the window, though you never know.  Like you say Shadar, colorist or a wig can take care of that.  Could even do it in post with vfx now.

I'm guessing they probably won't bother and keep her black hair and brown eyes.  Oh, and ofc mention that shes latina 500 times.

Having said that, I will be happy to be proven wrong.  Something tells me that won't be the case, but who knows.

Peace.

It won't, the director already put up a video saying how proud he is on working with the first Latina Supergirl

In my opinion, the visual of a character is part of their identity. I will be more inclined to not like this version of Supergirl if she doesn't have the iconic look

Not my work, but once again, this is what a random person with some photoshop skills could do.

Moreover, this version of Supergirl is meant to debut in the Flashpoint movie -- which, I guess, is how the DCEU crew means to fix the various discontinuities among the various movies -- so it's not out of the question that she is from a completely different background. She could be MAtrix, she could the Eradicator, she could be anything.

I don't think anyone is really doubting how she looks.  She is undeniably a very attractive woman.

It's how does she LOOK like SUPERGIRL that is the concern.

Peace.

Honestly, she looks amazing in this fan mock-up, no matter the hair colour.

She may not look like Supergirl's traditional description, but she's still a very attractive, young woman.

And while I know it's a sticky concept, I'm always happy about more representation if it genuienly helps people. At the end of the day, it's not the colour of her hair or eyes, but the acting, script and direction of the movie that matters. And if the creatives think she's the right choice, I trust them and will reserve judgement for the final product.

I really hope Supergirl will grow in importance and relevance similar to how Wonder Woman has, I want more big budget female super strength content. At least in that regard the rise of superhero movies has been a blessing. 

(Edit: I'm too stupid to figure out how to integrate pictures, so these links will have to do)
