During the casting, Helen Slater shot two scenes, one dressed as Linda Lee and another wearing an early version of the Supergirl costume which was very different from the one finally used. Differences included a headband and curly hair. DC Comics changed the comic's costume into this version, not knowing that it wasn't the definitive costume. See more »

There were U.K. prints of the film, which ran slightly shorter than the commonly seen European cut. This version is officially known as the "Shorter U.K. Cut" (as printed on the film reel sides) and were manufactured directly from Rank Film Laboratories. This version, which runs roughly 121 minutes, is for the most part identical to the 124 minute version, with slight edits that were made to the U.S. version sewn in. The prints begin with the 'Thorn EMI" logo. Among the included cuts are:
The shorter scene with Selena arriving home and meeting with Bianca, as in the U.S. version.
The shorter scene where Nigel talks to Selena about the Omegahedron, as in the U.S. version.
The 'Monster Tractor" scene is the shortened U.S. version
The moment where Supergirl is caught by the dorm manager (who is drunk) is missing, as in the U.S. version.
The dialogue when Bianca suggests that Selena call upon Nigel for help is missing, as in the U.S. version.
-The End Credits are time sped up, cutting their time by 1/3 of the other versions (including the U.S. credits). It's most notable as portions of Jerry Goldsmith's end title are missing, and remaining segments are over-layered to cover the truncation. See more »
I feel this movie was really given a bad first impression. I personally love the movie,I have always liked it and still continue to watch it. I recently bought the re-release that has the extra scenes. I am a fan of the Superman series and I feel if the creators of the Superman movie ( which I feel are the same people) had given Supergirl a better release date it would of had been a box office smash. I know there are certain scenes that could of had been fine tuned, but overall it is a great movie, I know people say Faye Dunnaway was overacting(melodramatic) I still think that she did great, after all she was a witch. I was though a little stunned with the coloring of the movie, yes it was back in 1984 however you still see movies that had great clear coloring.I wish the people who edited the movie had kept all the scenes in , because I feel it would of made a huge difference!
