After considering many other actresses for the title role, Helen Slater was cast as Kara/Supergirl (marking her film debut), while Faye Dunaway played the movie's primary villain (the witch Selena) and Creator/PeterOToole portrayed Kara's Kryptonian mentor Zaltar. In an attempt to offer continuity with the Superman films, Marc [=McClure=] reprised his role as ComicBook/JimmyOlsen, and ComicBook/LoisLane's sister Lucy (Maureen Teefy) appears as the roommate of Linda Lee (Supergirl's secret identity).
