Here’s Your First Look At Your New TV ‘Supergirl’
Melissa Benoist looks pretty damn heroic in these first official images from CBS’ “Supergirl.”
It appears that the iconic Supergirl costume has taken on a darker, more textured appearance, which is reminiscent of Henry Cavill’s “Man of Steel” attire. Regardless, we like the darker tone of the costume.
The anticipated CBS series centers on Kara Danvers (Benoist), otherwise known as Superman’s cousin Kara Zor-El. Like her cuz Kal-El, Kara was born on Krypton and escaped the planet’s destruction as a child. But at age 24, after years of denying her special abilities, Kara decides it’s time to come to terms with her alien talents and do some kickass world-saving.
Though they may share a color palette, don’t expect Kara to be as broody as Cavill’s Superman. “Supergirl” is being executive produced by Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg — AKA the creative masterminds behind “Arrow” and “The Flash” — along with Ali Adler. So we know there will be some lighthearted humor to look forward to.
And like “Arrow” and “The Flash,” the Supergirl costume was designed by Colleen Atwood.
