    Default Supergirl TV series: News/General Discussion

    Its official. CBS has started production of the first season of the TV series SUPERGIRL.

    The lead character stars Melissa Benoist (Glee) and also has Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal) and Dean Cain (Lois and Clarke) and Helen Slater (Supergirl the movie) in the cast.

    Written and produced by Ali Alder (No Ordinary Family) and Greg Borlanti (Arrow and Flash), the show has 24 year old Supergirl having hidden her powers, suddenly having to reveal herself to combat super villains...dont they all.

    Though apparently on a different channel to Arrow and Flash there are suggestions of cross over episodes. Lets keep it in the family.

    Honestly, I think this looks terrible based on the trailer. That is just my opinion of course, but it just does not look interesting.

    I'll give it a chance, though.

    It does seem a little designed for the teeny bopper. But lets hope given its made by the Arrow/Flash group.

    I will give it a try, but it depends on when on the monday slot they put it in.

    It's going up against Gotham in the fall. I had almost decided not to continue with Gotham, so it is possible that hour will be free. That preview was terrible.

    The biggest thing for me is the not-quite-right colors of her suit. It is very distracting. IF they've chosen to work in this franchise, they shouldn't alter the basics.

    Aside from that, way too much emo.

    However, since I've already waved bye bye to Gotham, it will definitely be given a shot.

    Personally I would like to see the Supergirl having a bit more mongrel than as shown in the shorts. Squeaky clean suggests its for the Under 15s. A more ambiguous character such as the Oliver Queen in Arrow would have been better.

    If I understand the premise of "Supergirl" right then Superman is already an established hero. Since there has been no mention of a super powered alien running around saving the day in "Arrow" and "The Flash" I think its safe to assume that they don't share the same universe.

    However, these are comic book shows and they could have someone travel between time lines/dimensions in order to have a cross over episode

    Smallville is not part of the Arrowverse But I think supergirl is also by Greg Berlanti who does ARROW & The Flash & LOT, but as of yet CBS aren't allowing Supergirl to be part of that shared universe, if it does well I imagine they might allow it down the track its still a greg berlanti show afterall

    Had Constantine been renewed, Stephen Amell was in talks to guest on the show for season 2 making it part of the Arrowverse, and i think there trying to get Constantine character to appear in Arrow next season so that it can be part of the Arrowverse, so who knows eventually Supergirl could guest on Arrow or The Flash or even LOT in the future

    It does appear that way. BUT maybe its just an east-west coast thing.

    The main thing standing between the Arrow and Supergirl is that those worlds clearly have a very different history, namely that Superman doesn't exist in the Arrowverse.

    Heck, from what I've read Warner have completely forbidden the Arrowverse from even saying Metropolis and Gotham

    I think its stupid, what there doing, but I still feel that maybe they will change there minds if Supergirl becomes a hit

    I don't like this series at all.
    It's too cliched.
    A lonely/shy girl trying to survive in a big city,then gets some kind of motivation (here, her powers) and then she beats everything and gets on top. Is it 90's?
    I rather prefer a Supergirl who is more badass and tough. She is powerful than her cousin, superman.

    Sounds like are judging it before you even seen it. That seems premature
