I didn't realize this wasn't official yet, but now it is.

Too bad they didn't cast Laura Vandervoort, who played that character on Smallville. She's only a couple years older than the girl they did cast.

They probably wanted to go their own route. And she's starring in another show already (Bitten), so even if they wanted her she's probably not available.

Ah, thanks. Never heard of that show.

Mehcad BrooksJimmy Olson is being played by a 35 year old, who's previous role was as an NFL superstar. I'm not getting that.

There's probably a good reason why. It pretty much sucks.

Well, it is a Berlanti, Kreisberg production and they've done pretty well with Arrow and The Flash so far.

My concern would be that they are spreading themselves too thin here, especially with the rumored third CW superhero show.

Also, I wonder if they can actually do any cross overs with Arrow and Flash.

I never liked her. She was a terrible actress. Glad they went with someone else.

CBS is part owner of The CW, so maybe. However the shows on these networks tend to have very different feels so I'm not sure how well they'll fit. The CW shows seems to have a bit more teen angst and a lower budget feel to them, while CBS shows tend to skew more toward an older crowd.

And I'll admit to officially being an old fuddy-duddy (who else uses that term, anyway), but as the father of a few girls, I'm glad they are apparently not going with the sluttier look.

Don't get me wrong... that's definitely a good look, but I'd rather watch 'Supergirl' with my daughters if she looks less like that, and more like the publicity photo I posted.

I tried to watch Bitten, but I couldn't. It was horrible.

I like Laura though; she was good on Smallville and on V.

Nice that they're throwing Helen Slater and Dean Cain a couple of bones.

I know. My first reaction when I heard this was going to CBS was that it was odd.
While CBS does air two shows I consider to be very well written (The Good Wife and Person of Interest), Supergirl doesn't seem to be a good fit for them at first glance and would work better on Fox or CW.

On the other hand, the strategy may be to see if this show will bring them some younger viewers.

I think that's the objective. CW has had some good success with Arrow and Flash. ABC has had moderate success with S.H.I.E.L.D. and their parent, Disney has had massive success with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I think CBS wants to get in on the superhero craze while it's still hot.

This one smells of quick cancellation or possibly death before the actual show like that Wonder Woman show debacle a while back.

Except they've already ordered a season (Wonder Woman was just a failed pilot).

Yes. At least according to the article here.

"The finished pilot had been getting good reviews, including solid feedback for Winter and Benoist’s work."

Liked that they acknowledged there's a Superman, if not by name. I'll check it out.

That preview had an entirely different tone than Man of Steel, that's for sure. I must admit that I liked it. I'll give it a go.

Hmmm... Kind of a comedy. Supergirl/Kara is hawt. I'll certainly give it a go.


I don't know much of anything about Supergirl. Kal-El/Clark/Supes is her cousin? He knows about her and she knows about him? James Olson ("Jimmy") knows Supes. Does he know Clark here? And already, people know who Kara/Supergirl is.
