CBS has confirmed that Melissa Benoist will play Supergirl in the upcoming CBS TV series of the same name. Benoist has appeared in tv/movies such as Whiplash, Glee, Homeland and The Good Wife. In Supergirl, she will play Kara Zor-El, who escaped her home planet of Krypton amid its destruction years ago. While living on Earth, she has concealed her powers that she shares with her famous super cousin. At the age of 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
Here are some Tweets from Benoist and her fellow DC TV superheroes Stephen Amell (Arrow) and Grant Gustin (The Flash), along with a glimpse of her transformation from brunette to blonde. She’s starting to look the part, right?
A few more cast additions still need to be made, but this is by far the biggest! So what are your thoughts on the latest Supergirl?
