Melissa Benoist Cast As Supergirl

Written By: XBen3000

Coming at you with some comic book news Nation. The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Glee actress Melissa Benoist has been cast as the Woman of Steel.  What we know about the show so far is the following thanks to THR.

“The hourlong drama, which received a hefty series commitment, centers on Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin, who was born on the planet Krypton and escaped amid its destruction years ago. Benoist will play Kara, who after arriving on Earth was taken in by a foster family, the Danvers, who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers (which she shares with her famous cousin, Superman).

Now 24, Kara feels un-empowered, a slave to having repressed her innate abilities. She’s still pretty, but with her face hidden behind glasses and her hair pulled back, she doesn’t know it herself. An unexpected disaster forces her to use her powers in public. Energized by her heroic deed, for the first time in her life, Kara begins embracing her extraordinary abilities. She begins helping the people of her city and they soon take notice — and she’s even given a new moniker: Supergirl.”

Like always Nation let me know what you think down below or on Twitter. I’m interested in this series airing later this year on CBS. Rumors are saying its in the same universe as Arrow/Flash so I would be down for a crossover episode.
