The first trailer for CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series came under a fair bit of scrutiny for hewing too close to romantic comedies, but the network may want to brace itself for even more exposure. Months before its debut, the full Supergirl pilot has leaked online through torrent websites.
Regardless of network, any and all DC TV series spur talk of crossover potential from fans. The Flash arrived with its Arrow connection built in, but despite Supergirl’s CBS proximity to The CW, executive producer Greg Berlanti confirms that the universes will remain separate (for now, anyway).
CBS Supergirl arrived to the world in a first trailer from the Upfront presentations yesterday, though fans were quick to note the omniprescence of romantic comedy schtick recently skewered by SNL with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow. Second time’s the charm it seems, as the latest, shorter Supergirl trailer drops the romance in favor of action, bringing out some famous Kryptonian abilities to do it.
CBS' Supergirl will officially take her Kryptonian place on the lineup Mondays this fall, but why wait for an early look at Superman's cousin? The first trailer for Supergirl has at last arrived, bringing with it plenty of super-surprises and DC alien action.
It’s been a good while since we’ve heard from CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series, but with TV’s dreaded Upfronts arriving next week (we’ve already got scotch handy), one of the season’s more obvious picks has officially taken flight. Kara of Krypton will officially come to CBS this fall with a Supergirl series order. It's uncertain where CBS might schedule Supergirl during the week; rumor suggests we may see Kara take flight on Sundays.
Now that production on CBS’ Supergirl series has formally gotten up, up and underaway, our first look at Glee star Melissa Benoist as our new Kara Zor-El has floated safely to Earth. See Supergirl go Man of Steel dark with our first photos of the new CBS series’ costume!
Super, if not-particularly surprising news, everyone! CBS forthcoming Supergirl series has followed The Flash’s lead in returning past franchise stars to the new edition, recruiting Lois & Clark star Dean Cain and original cinematic Supergirl Helen Slater for “top-secret” roles. Might the former Superman and Supergirl’s characters be so easy to identify in CBS’ rendition, however?
CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series boasts a number of DC figures among its primary cast, and while Kara Zor-El and Jimmy Olsen have already been found, two new figures from DC lore have joined the party. Calista Flockhart will return to television to portray Superman media mogul Cat Grant, while Nashville star Laura Benanti will play Kara’s Kryptonian mother.
Good news this week for fans of ComicsAlliance's officially ranked Third Greatest Comic Book Character Of All Time: Mehcad Brooks has been cast in the role of Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen in CBS's upcoming Supergirl show, meaning that the long national nightmare of Olsen-free television that we have suffered since 2009, when Jimmy was killed off on the 8th season finale of Smallville, is finally over.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brooks's Olsen will be joining the ranks of other established comic book characters like the Toyman and -- no kidding -- Cyborg Superman in the cast, and will be featured on the increasingly bizarre-sounding show as a photographer at CatCo, a media company in National City founded by Cat Grant, where Supergirl works in her civilian identity, when she's not involved in what has been described as a crime procedural. Also included in the announcement, though, was the idea that Kara will have a crush on him, hinting at a relationship between the two characters.
CBS ‘Supergirl’ recently revealed a more procedural format that had many fans worried about the series, but the casting of Kara Zor-El should leave all positively ‘Glee’-ful. Melissa Benoist will don a cape and tights for the title role in CBS’ ‘Supergirl’ series, chronicling the adventures of Superman’s cousin.
