From Superhero Hype:
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.

The cast so far:

Jeremy Jordan as Winslow Schott

Chyler Leigh as Alexandra Danvers............Kara's foster sister who works for a secret government organization.
Helen Slater and Dean Cain are cast in the pilot yet to be revealed roles.
DC villain The Lumberjack will be on the show
Rumor that Superman may appear on the show........in some form.

Of course there is some blacklash on the race swap of Jimmy and Hank.

    I'm interested in how this is going to turn out. Honestly, I have no confidence in this show. Why you ask...it's because it's CBS. CBS seems like they are going to pull an NBC and just jump on the comic book show like it's a trend. I think she show will be excellent like Arrow and The Flash but it's something about CBS.

    Welp it's not like you can really fuck up something as lame as super girl.

    Would rather a she hulk court drama but they too busy trying to get us into wack ass Margaret Carter.

    This show gotta be in the same continuity as Arrow and Flash? Sucks that Harewood will be Hank Henshaw. He could have made for a fine Steel.

    I'm just glad my teenage crush Chyler Leigh will be on tv again. Hopefully she hasn't hit the wall.

    Really don't see the point of replacing Jimmy or Hank with black people.

    Hank doesn't really matter since end game he's losing his main body, but Jimmy? Just seems pointless.
    "You embarrass me," said Shadow, smiling. Then Shadow took his penis out and picked Cream up. "Let me charge up for a super ejaculation!" Shadow laid Cream down on the ground and then took his penis with him, which was already huge and shaking with sex energy, and found Cream's Piggy Bank, which was full of coins and dollars and things to save up for money, so she could buy what she wanted when she had enough inside it. Shadow took it and using his muscular penis, smashed a hole right through the piggy bank so now it was sitting on top of his penis like a hat. Shadow's penis looked like it belonged in a fashion show.

    I figured Jimmy Olsen no longer being a ginger would be considered a win for gingers.

    Are you kidding, Jimmy Olsen is who every ginger aspires to be growing up.

    Also I am just seeing a lot of black people overall, especially black women in these new fantasy tv shows. The flash and Sleepy Hollow come to mind because my girl watches both of those. Of course all them broads could get it.

    Him being black is about as pointless as him being ginger. He wasn't even ginger on Smallville or the Dean Cain show lol.




    Its like everyone forgot Dean Cain is Asian

    Pretty sure horribly muted colors, thigh high boots, and dark stockings aren't classic.

    That's the thing. There's cosplay that looks way better than that.


    No one was dressing up like Green Arrow or Flash prior to their shows. So there was no real cosplay standard. And CW managed to do a pretty good job. CBS has been the number one network for quite some time, so I expect costume to at least match the best cosplay.

    We have to remember that positive female role models can only be overweight,fully clothed and hate men in general.

    Well 90s Flash looks a ton better, and those cheap ass halloween muscle suits of flash is a good bit better than the gimp outfit from the CW show. Arrow costume is just some random shit.

    That Supergirl getup tho, who designs this stuff and keeps getting away with it lol?

    Well that bit off info and the trailer, just caused the show to lose hype points in my book. Though still we're getting live action Kryptonian throwing down outside of DCU.

    I find the lack of Ginger Olsen disrespectful.
    Has anyone thanked you today for not setting the whole world on fire?

    They should. I won't. I advocate setting the world on fire. But morons who actually like it, benefit from society, would do well to thank you and men like you for not visiting hell upon them.

    LOL, what the hell. This shit looks like its suppose to be on disney. Dat soundtrack -_-

    I know its on cbs, but jesus fuck. Fuck you cw for not picking it up. Now i have to deal with cbs when it comes to supergirl. No way that show last long in its trailer form.

    Its like disney show meets devil wears prada, meets smallville. I'll see how the first few episodes are. Shes attractive. I was expecting someone hotter to be honest.

    They obviously aiming for females with the click flick setup for the show. They likely will eat up the Devil Wears Prada vibe. I'm not feeling alpha male Jimmy Olsen. I want the nerdy ginger who's often in over his head.

    Just watched the trailer. It is a generic chick show with just enough superhero stuff to appeal to the dudes. It won't last for a season, it reeks of cliche bullshit.
  • MageggMagegg Joined: Posts: 3,860
    It's just like Lois & Clark: The goofy comedy. The hidden villains. The "action". Dead Cain.

    The series is more likely to completely shift its focus to romantic relationships within the first 2-3 seasons... First episodes will probably be fun to watch.

    I haven't seen Arrow or Flash but after 10 years of Smallvile I'll never watch a CW show again. I imagine the purpose is to get people like myself and the CBS audience to check out the show.
