It’s a bird, it’s a plane, its not that guy you are thinking about…but a girl! The next DC hero to get their own show will be Supergirl to be precise! CBS placed a series order for Supergirl, which is being created by one of the producers behind CW’s Arrow and The Flash. The show will focus on Kara Zor-El, the cousin of Superman, as she’s finally beginning to use her powers at age 24. (Wouldn’t that make her SuperWoman?)
No word has been released about when the series is to hit air, but Deadline reports that the show appears to have received an even bigger commitment from CBS than Gotham did from Fox, which suggests that the network has a lot of faith in it. Not a bad idea considering most networks seem to be investing in these type of shows. Fox has Gotham, NBC has Constantine, and ABC has Agents of SHIELD, making CBS one of the biggest networks without a superhero series of its own.
Are you excited for Supergirl? We’ll leave you with this clip from the 1984 movie where she lays the smack down on some truckers.
