Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are developing a "Supergirl" movie.

"22 Jump Street" scribe Oren Uziel will pen the script, reported Deadline.

In the CW's TV series, the character has been played by Melissa Benoist.

The show is currently heading into its fourth season and is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller.

Twitter is buzzing with rumors about Supergirl movie,

According to the website, the idea here could be reflective of the rumors that Warner Bros. and DC are looking "to create a new template for future Superman movies."

This new line-up of DC superhero projects is being spearheaded by executive Walter Hamada and includes movies like "Shazam!" and the female-fronted "Birds of Prey" starring Margot Robbie, as well as the standalone "The Joker" with Joaquin Phoenix.

Warner Bros is also developing a Batgirl movie, as well as Matt Reeves' upcoming "The Batman".

Supergirl first appeared in "Action Comics #252" from writer Otto Binder and illustrator Al Plastino. It followed Kara Zor-El, who was born and raised in Argo City — a fragment of Krypton that survived destruction. When the town is doomed, Kara is sent to Earth by her parents to be raised by her cousin Kal-El, known as Superman.

Supergirl adopted the secret identity of orphan Linda Lee and made Midvale Orphanage her home.
