The possibility of a new Supergirl series is still fresh on people’s minds, and while Supergirl doesn’t seem to have been directly mentioned in Variety’s write-up of talking to Flash and Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti, who is also said to be involved with the new Supergirl project, Berlanti did talk about the booming interest in new kinds of heroes, including female leads.
Berlanti recalled being a fan of Wonder Woman and Batgirl when he was younger, and mentions that he thinks the coming boom of female heroes is what’s “going to come next.”
“You look at things like Frozen and Wicked and Maleficent and Lucy, and they’re hits. Because they’re really interesting characters,” he said.
