TV teen star Melissa Benoist has officially been cast as CBS’s Supergirl! Melissa who has been on a huge TV hit like Glee and most recently Whiplash, will have no problems leading a TV series.
Supergirl The TV series is slated to air on the CBS network, even tho it is produced by Greg Berlanti from WB TV. Greg is also executive producer of heavy hitter WB shows like The Flash and Arrow!
I know fans will want to jump the gun and want an immediate Flash, Arrow and Supergirl team up but the words from CBS’s Nina Tassler……it is seeming like a long shot for now. Will Kara ‘El eventually ever cross-over with WB’s already mainstay shows? I’m pretty sure we will see it happen down the road. It all depends on how well CBS handles Supergirl and if CW wants any part of that fame. On CBS Supergirl has all the potential to be the biggest DC show of them all!
Supergirl TV Show synopsis:
“Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.”
