CBS’ upcoming Supergirl……. I have mixed feelings about this show. A lot of fans expect big things from the show, seeing how it’s made by the Arrow and The Flash producer Greg Berlanti. But I just hope it doesn’t turn out to be a teen drama/Smallville. I personally wasn’t a fan of Smallville and found it hard to watch at times. The original Supergirl movie wasn’t a big hit, but I rather enjoyed it for what it was. Just a few weeks ago they released photos of what the new Supergirl will look like. I rather like the costume and the over all feel of it and fits in well with the current Superman movies. My only thing is the actress…. Melissa Benoist, to me just doesn’t read superhero. Maybe I’m wrong and she’ll shock us with this show. I’ve enjoyed everything that Greg Berlanti has done with Arrow and now Flash. So I have faith that he’ll make this work.
In current news it was revealed that Dean Cain and Helen Slater will ALSO be part of the show! For those who don’t know, Dean played Superman in the ’90s series Lois and Clark: The Adventures of Superman. Helen was the original Supergirl in the 1984 Supergirl movie. The news is that they both are going to be play Linda Danvers’s (Melissa Benoist) parents. Should be interesting to say the least..
Over at Comic Book Resources (CBR) They posted a story that shows some of the set and additional information about the show and what is to come. Check it out: Supergirl
