Director Andy Muschietti has previously shared a close-up of a bloody Batsuit, a new design and graphic logo for the Scarlet Speedster’s Suit, and now June. 18 2021 on Instagram, the director has officially revealed the first glimpse at Sasha Calle’s Supergirl costume, for which she will don in “The Flash” (2022).
The design looks quite similar to the one Henry Cavill was decked out with during his tenure as the Man of Steel in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). The last time Cavill suited up as Kal-El was during “Zack Synder’s Justice League,” and he was shown in a black and chrome variation of the classic suit. Of course there are few differences compared to her comic counterpart.
For example, a tint and layer of red forms out at the top and continues near the shoulders, possibly blending and shading into the fabric and design of her cape. Of course this is just a close-up shot of the logo, hereas the dark royal blue begins to form with the gold ‘S’ takes center stage in the Kryptonian glyph, same as Henry Cavill’s previous suits. I feel all the questions lingering at this point will be answered when an official costume reveal will be published.
Needless to say, Andy Muschietti has been quite generous with suit teases, and I hope they continue to proceed because it gives the film a sense of mystery and intrigue. It does beg the question of what will be the next domino to fall or big reveal from this project.
“The Flash” will not only feature Ben Affleck as Batman, but will see the return of Michael Keaton as the Dark Knight for the first time since 1992’s “Batman Returns.” The film will also star Sasha Calle as Supergirl, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen (Barry’s mother in the DCEU), and Ron Livingston, who will be replacing Billy Crudup as Barry’s father in the DCEU due to scheduling conflicts.
The Daily Planet is working diligently on deciphering the glyphs shown on Supergirl’s personal insignia. Expect an article very soon!
