So, we know that CBS has confirmed they have committed to a Supergirl series and Facebook and the DC website are all aflutter about it.

Anyone here have any thoughts?

I've read that Supergirl will be in her early-to-mid 20's and that she has been on earth hiding her powers for quite some time. Events occur that inspire her to come out of hiding and become the hero that the "S-Shield" is known for.

Not sure how much, if any, of that is true, but it leads me to make assumptions that at some point Superman himself will be making an appearance. Or maybe he will just be a background presence, talked about but never seen, at the very least.

Casting info would be nice to hear since the show has been green lit, I agree.

The Vampire Diaries’ Claire Holt Up for Supergirl

SuperHeroHype

Dec 01, 2014

Casting is now underway for CBS’ upcoming DC Comics series, “Supergirl,” with TheWrap reporting that Claire Holt, best known for playing Rebekah on “The Vampire Diaries” (and it’s spinoff, “The Originals”), is up for the title role.

Written and executive produced by “Arrow” and “The Flash” creator Greg Berlanti and “Chuck” and “No Ordinary Family” producer Ali Adler, “Supergirl” is said to focus on Superman’s cousin, Kara Zor-El. The show will follow her as she begins to use her superpowers, which she has kept hidden for much of her life on Earth.

In many iterations the cousin of the Man of Steel himself, “Supergirl” was previously adapted into a feature film starring Helen Slater in 1984. Laura Vandervoort later appeared as the character on The CW’s “Smallville.”

Holt’s other credits include the Australian mermaid children’s series “H20: Just Add Water” and NBC’s upcoming event series, “Aquarius,” which follows an investigation into Charles Manson in 1967 Los Angeles.

CBS gave “Supergirl” a full season order back in September, mirroring Fox’s plans for “Gotham” last year. Between the Batman-inspired show on FOX, “Constantine” on NBC, “Arrow” and “The Flash” on The CW, DC Entertainment will have a comic-based television series on every major network outside of the Disney-owned ABC (which airs “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”)

Sarah Shechter is also executive producing “Supergirl.”

Mehcad Brooks to Play James Olsen on Supergirl

SuperHeroHype

Jan 28, 2015

Mehcad Brooks (“Necessary Roughness,” “True Blood,” “Desperate Housewives”) has been cast as James Olsen on CBS’ “Supergirl” TV series, from Warner Bros. TV and Berlanti Productions (“Arrow,” “The Flash”). He is joining actress Melissa Benoist, who plays Kara Zor-El.

“Supergirl” is based on the characters from DC Comics and centers on Kara Zor-El, who comes to earth after escaping the destruction of Krypton. After many years hiding her abilities, she joins the ranks of her cousin Superman to become the hero she was meant to be.

In the series, Olsen is a photographer at CatCo, the media company where Kara works. He recently has been living and working in National City, though the reason is still a secret.

The pilot was written by Ali Adler (“No Ordinary Family”) and Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash”). They will also executive produce along with Sarah Schechter and Warner Bros. TV. The show has a series commitment at CBS.

Obscure DC Comics Villain Lumberjack to Menace CBS’ Supergirl

SuperHeroHype

Jan 30, 2015

The first villain to menace CBS’ upcoming “Supergirl” has been revealed as TVLine reports Melissa Benoist’s Kara Zor-El will face off against the obscure DC Comics character Lumberjack in the pilot episode of the upcoming CBS series.

Lumberjack, created in 1980 by Gerry Conway and Jose Delbo, made his sole comic book appearance in “Wonder Woman” #268 as part of a trio of international super-assassins (which also included one-off appearances from foes called Red Fang and Changeling). According to the outlet, Lumberjack will be an established villain in the series’ continuity who has previously faced off against Kara’s cousin, Superman. In the episode, he’s been hired by an unknown big bad to ascertain the precise extent of Kara’s abilities.

The news follows word from earlier this week that “True Blood” star Mehcad Brooks will be joining the series as Jimmy Olsen.

Hailing from Warner Bros. TV and Berlanti Productions (who also produce the hit DC Comics series “Arrow” and “The Flash” for The CW), “Supergirl” is based on the characters from DC Comics and centers on Kara Zor-El, who comes to Earth after escaping the destruction of Krypton. After many years hiding her abilities, she joins the ranks of her cousin Superman to become the hero she was meant to be.

The pilot episode was written by Ali Adler (“No Ordinary Family”) and Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash”). They will also executive produce along with Sarah Schechter and Warner Bros. TV. The show has a series commitment at CBS.
