Other scenes not included in the director's cut include:

Nigel asks Linda Lee if she has plans for the three day weekend(right before "the map" sequence)
Supergirl tells Selena she will only bow to truth and justice(During the showdown at Selena's home.)
During the midvale protest scene, the young woman who stands up to Selena is killed. After standing in front of the car, Selena turns her into an ice statue, and the whole crowd cowers, except for Lucy Lane.
More miscellaneous dialog throughout the film with Selena and the omegahedron, more footage of Supergirl showing her strength, etc.
Supergirl is a fine film that has been unjustly overlooked in the years. For those expecting a straight Superman clone with a girl instead of a grown man, then it was probably a shock to have so many fantasy elements in the mix. Granted a man flying and stopping bullets is very fantastical, but his villains were always very grounded on earth. Lex Luthor anyone? So when it was announced that Superman's cousin would be getting her own movie, I'm sure everyone had their own preconceived notion of what it would be like. The fact that Supergirl is up against a witch and battles demons may have been too much of a stretch for most. Hopefully, the film finally gets its due now that it is out on DVD since it really isn't a bad movie. Helen Slater brings a wide eyed innocence to the role. Some have called Kara a half-wit but that is not true. She is merely a sheltered girl who has never seen the world and when she does get to she has trouble interacting with it. Peter O'Toole is his usual wonderful self as the founder of Argo City and Kara's mentor. Faye Dunaway does a fine job as well as the sorceress. Indeed most of the cast do just fine. The only real downer is Hart Bochner as love interest than. This guy should never have been let even near a movie set. Ouch! Still, Supergirl is good clean fun. Trivia buffs can watch for Matt Frewer in a small role as a lascivious truck driver.
