Once again, the wrong source material is employed for developing a Supergirl movie

I've read the news of what James Gunn's plans are for restarting the slate of DC movie adaptations, and am not impressed. As reported by Slash Film, one of the projects WB's working on is a new take on Supergirl, and this sounds a lot more politically motivated than the abortive 1984 adaptation ever was:
DC Studios may not be directly adapting all the books Gunn mentioned, but we know one recent comic that is definitely getting a movie: "Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow." The eight-issue miniseries from Tom King and Bilquis Evely (whose art is absolutely phenomenal, as are the colors from Matheus Lopes) first hit stands in 2021, wrapping up the following year.

It might seem surprising to adapt such a recent tale, but King and Evely have crafted a truly unique story about the Girl of Steel. Even cooler, is that King, one of the best writers working in comics today, is involved in the project. Just read "Mister Miracle," "Vision," or "Strange Adventures" and you'll be a believer. Or, better yet, check out "Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow." Not that the book needs my help, since it's currently selling out everywhere, but let's delve into why this comic is worth your time.
No, let's not, because I've heard enough. Even the bragging about Gunn causing these books to sell like hotcakes reeks of too much boasting, and that's why I find this movie specialty site so unbearable. The columnist clearly doesn't see Heroes in Crisis as a terrible example of writing, if we were to bring that up, and her sugarcoating approach destroys everything.

It's not so surprising at all that a filmmaker as PC as Gunn is would scrape the bottom of the barrel for building a screenplay, and to do so, he looks for the most recent storylines, instead of researching the older Maid of Might tales from the Silver/Bronze Ages, which could have potential for movie inspirations. Even the Peter David-scripted series from 1996-2003 might be more worthwhile as a wellspring. Instead, Gunn draws from leftist ideologue King for how to make a movie (and even gives him a job on the planned film), and it doesn't take much to conclude this'll turn out to be one of DC's wokest-laden movies to date.

It's sad enough the Salkinds crafted such a botch of a Supergirl movie, shortly after the 3rd Superman movie floundered. Now, decades later, it looks like another cheap project emphasizing pessimism this time round is in the works. Once again, the Maid of Might's been dealt a serious disservice by modern ideologues at the movies.
