Today is a great day for Geekdom.
Glee, Whiplash and Homeland actress Melissa Benoist was announced as Supergirl for the upcoming DC Comics superhero show on CBS.
She is a gorgeous actress who can hold the nerves and be Kara Zor-El.
According to Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler, Kara Zor-El in this adaptation comes from Krypton and is adopted by the Danvers and hence takes the name Kara Danvers. She is taught by the Danvers to keep her powers hidden and she feels disillusioned with life for behaving like a normal human, wearing spectacles and combing her hair back. And then she is forced to use her powers in public and it changes everything for her. She will follow a similar origin story to her more illustrious cousin Superman and the producers are sure that she will be a success story.
The supergirl show is described as a feminist detective drama. There are chances that Supergirl might end up in the DC Cinematic Universe, if the producers decide to keep it away from the DC TV Universe.
Supergirl will debut later this year on CBS and there are talks of a possible crossover with Arrow and Flash on the CW.
Melissa Benoist is a fun and talented actress, a Glee regular and had a small role in the Oscar nominated movie Whiplash starring Miles Teller.
Cannot wait for the show to debut.
Its a treat all the way indeed.
