#1

From Superhero Hype:

The cast so far:

Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El/Kara Danvers/Supergirl

Mehcad Brooks as James “Jimmy” Olsen

Laura Benanti as Alura In-Ze/Zor-El

Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant

David Harewood as Hank Henshaw

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.

Jimmy spanking his wages on the tanning salon and paid a heavy price for it. When they gonna learn gingers dont mix well with UV?


#3

Supergirl stan checking in. They better not fuck this up. lol. I will expect this on tv come next fall season


#4

Does Calista Flockhart even weigh enough to not pass out during this?


#5

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.


#6

CBS never disappoints so I’m game


#7

Let me live bruh! Lol

EDIT - I love 2 Broke Girls tho


#8

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.


#9

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.


#10

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


#11

I don’t understand this new thing with replacing gingers with black people.

Boycotting.


#12

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.


#13

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


#14

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.


#15

Nobody can forget Sushiman, damn thatll never get old :trollface:


#16

Something about the boots though. But she would still get it.


#17

Interesting that they are doing a classic look…cool with that.


#18

Despite the amount of clothing I forsee new age feminists going crazy over this.


#19

I always thought that costume was extremely silly…


#20

Thats less Supergirl more Averagegirl, looks like a well made piece of cosplay.
