@achilles100: PG is grieving over the death of her friend, not being rescued. Clinging to Val in this context does not imply that they are an item. Batman is holding his daughter's body while Kara and Val look on. Should be obvious.

@achilles100:

Interesting point.

If they can make Chris Evans look skinny by CGIing his head onto a skinny actor, could they CGI another girl's rack onto the actress who plays PG?

BTW, if Chris Evans has played two Marvel characters, what happens when Fantastic Four show up in an Avengers film? Has anyone else asked this?

@achilles100:

They'd want a cheap actress who is also a very good actress? If they want a cheap actress, it means they want to make a cheap movie, which means I could make a better one myself with six friends and a film graduate.

@achilles100: We should at least look before writing off the possibility. Include in the casting call something like "preferably with very large boobs" along with all the other requirements and see who shows up.

Perhaps the actress's boobs can be held in place by heavy-duty spandex for actions scenes. PG-size boobs should not be as big a problem as Captain America-size muscles as far as movement is concerned.

If the actress has only a C or D cup I will not recognise it as a PG movie, so it would be like there never was one anyway. For me an important thing about PG is that she is doesn't represent the typical female comic superhero physique - or personality either. Having her played by a C or D cup actress would just make her Supergirl with a different colored costume.

To revive this old thread; she's never going to be in a movie. Assuming WB ever wants a heroic female Kryptonian character, they'd go for Supergirl all the time, like DC itself mostly does.

But if by some chance she was, I think you guys are going about it all wrong. Don't cast for the boobs, you'd just get a horrible actress who couldn't do the physical stuff. Cast first for overall acting ability, looks, and the ability to handle the physical aspects of such a role, then go for whichever actress met those requirements and had the biggest rack among those candidates. And she'd have to be younger than Hendricks, quite a bit in fact.

Most probably an unknown stage or soap actress, or a Brit or Aussie or the like.

A Supergirl story and character would probably be too similar to the Superman movies. I don't know why they don't do a Wonder Woman movie. That could be done very well. Assuming they could find a good actress with the boobs for it :)

I wouldn't like an actress to play PG with big boobs but not the other qualities. I bet they could find an actress with boobs for the part who is also good in the other respects. There must be a lot of frustrated, talented actresses whose boobs are way too big for most other acting parts. Cast first for boobs and pick from those the actresses with the other qualities. If the part calls for big boobs, give the big-boobed actresses the break they need :)

I don't think an actress with a Brit or Aussie accent would be best.

Most of those actors and actresses can lose the accent quite easily. Karl Urban. Chris Hemsworth and brothers. Hell, Xena herself. Doesn't seem to be a problem for them to go American.

As for the boobs, well Marvel has done quite well casting for acting first, then physique. Chris Evans for example would have to be about 100 pounds of pure muscle heavier to look like Cap in the comics. Which is probably impossible for him, and would really restrict his movement. Instead, they went for the best they could get out of him, (which is impressive enough), and got a guy who could act and do the action stuff. Ditto for Hemsworth. Fact is, comic book physiques just don't exist in the real world, at least not those sorts of builds that still allow the person to move in action hero ways.

Would a "C" or "D" cup really make such a huge difference that you wouldn't forget it the first few minutes into a movie? Especially if the actress could own the role like RDJ?

Or would you rather have an actress with giant boobs who couldn't act her way out of a paper bag, or couldn't move in an action heroine way?

Like I said before, however, it's a moot point, Power Girl will never be in a WB/DC movie, at least not as long as TPTB at those companies remain in charge.

And not in any animated stuff either; that's now all post reboot.

Probably her only hope is a guest spot on either Arrow or The Flash. And I don't see those coming either, though she'd fit in nicely in either show, and her effect are easy by now to do.

Comic muscles don't exist in real world. Comic boobs do. At least, they go way above D.

Boob size doesn't affect acting ability. We can have both.

does anyone understand the this comment under the last photo at the very bottom of the page:

A peculiar lack of superhero men like this...

It's the typical objection to PG's boob window because it is non-functional and purely for titillation, likening it to a male superhero character with a costume with a butt-crease window, as pictured. It's pointing out a double-standard for male and female superhero costumes. What these people don't realise is that you can't make such a comparison, simply because men don't have boobs. Females also have butts and we don't see butt-windows on their costumes either.

This type of person objects to any kind of sex-appeal in female superhero costumes, or anything which could be construed as having sex-appeal. In other words, female superhero costumes should always completely cover their boobs.

^ The question was "how muscular" but who cares, she's hired.

Her proportions are just right in this panel.

How did she get all those buttons in?
