‘Supergirl’, starring Melissa Benoist in the title role, is slated to take off on CBS this fall on October 26, 2015 at 8:30 pm, so the network is hoping to prime audiences by unveiling a new two-minute trailer.
With Marvel taking a pass on SDCC this year, Warner Brothers is expected to swoop in and really cut loose with the reveals to steal the show, and among the juicy treats the studio is rumored to be sharing with fans is a screening of the full pilot episode, to hopefully drum up positive word of mouth.
The show is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, one of the creators of ‘Arrow‘ and ‘The Flash‘ and judging by the success of those two hits the Girl of Steel is in good hands. Those that have already seen the show have reacted positively and find Benoist in the title role charming and easy to root for.
This freshman super series is timed to air opposite Fox’s established Batman prequel series ‘Gotham,’ so it should be interesting to see how these two DC heavyweights stack up against one another, but in this day and age, it’s not as if fans really have to pick one or the other. Just set your DVRs or watch them on demand. (Or some other method, but those are the ones we’re endorsing.)
Watch the new two-minute trailer below:
SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret.
Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (Golden Globe Award winner Calista Flockhart), who just hired the Daily Planet’s former photographer, James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), as her new art director. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.
