Long before Kara Danvers graced our televisions, she appeared on the big screen in 1984's Supergirl. Star Helen Slater, who now plays Eliza Danvers on the CW series, and her Jimmy Olsen, Marc McClure (also the Jimmy Olsen to Kara's cousin Superman in the Christopher Reeves films), reunited in celebration of the film's Blu-ray release.

SYFY FANGRRLS spoke to Slater and McClure about Supergirl's legacy as the first female-fronted superhero movie and why we need Supergirl now more than ever.
