CBS has finally found their Kara Zor-El in Glee alum and Whiplash actor, Melissa Benoist!
The story will follow Kara Zor-El, a Kryptonian who fled her home planet after its pending destruction. On Earth, Kara is adopted by the Danvers, who teach her to be careful of her powers. At 24, Kara still hides her abilities until an unexpected disaster forces her to use her powers in public. Realizing the empowerment she felt, Kara uses her gifts to save the people of her city, eventually given the name “Supergirl” by the public.
Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) and Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) are penning the script and exec. producing the drama alongside Sarah Schecter (The Flash).
Kara’s family has yet to be announced along with the rumored appearances of Jimmy Olsen and Cat Grant.
So what do you think? Will Melissa be a good Supergirl? (And yes, she has recently dyed her hair for the role!)
