In just a few weeks, the TV side of DC Entertainment will consist of four fairly high profile shows, including “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Gotham” and “Constantine,” but it seems they’re already looking ahead. all this week rumors had DC Entertainment actively pitching a Supergirl TV series with Michael Green (“Heroes,” “Smallville”) attached as a writer and producer on the series.

Now, E! Online not only confirms the rumors┬ábut has revealed that The CW will not be the home of the series, despite being the first place it was pitched. It’s unclear if this television version of the character would tie into the DC Cinematic Universe, as the prequel comic for last year’s Man of Steel introduced Kara Zor-El into the canon of the film, but as with the other TV projects it will likely be separate.

Green actually has a history with Supergirl, having co-written the first twelve issues of the character’s series for DC’s “New 52” relaunch. He’s also no stranger to other heroes having co-written the 2011 Green Lantern film as well as three episodes of “Heroes” and six episodes of “Smallville.”

The cousin of the Man of Steel himself, Supergirl was previously adapted into a feature film in 1984, often considered one of the worst superhero films, starring Helen Slater as the character. Laura Vandervoort later appeared as the character on The CW’s “Smallville” in the later seasons.
