first official trailer for Supergirl by CBS
from the press release
SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (Golden Globe Award winner Calista Flockhart), who just hired the Daily Planet’s former photographer, James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), as her new art director. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime. Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Arrow”), Ali Adler, Sarah Schecter and Andrew Kreisberg are executive producers for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The pilot was directed by Glen Winter (“Arrow”).

    Why did they choose such a average looking woman for the part? I guess they're pandering to all the average looking young women out there who are shy, awkward or lacking confidence but it just doesn't feel right. She is so bland, totally unremarkable. They could have done so much better. Check out Laura Vandervoort. Now that's a real Supergirl. This one looks more like Supergirlnextdoor.

    With a protagonist this irritable, I don't see this going very far. Hopefully we get a legitimate supergirl one day.

    haha, @ 2:05 Supergirl asks while watching the TV in the bar " Did he say Geneva?", lol, was it too loud in the bar for her to hear? The reporter on TV spoke very clearly , but yet she had to ask the bartender "Did he say Geneva?" literally half a second after the reporter said 'Geneva'. That seems odd she didn't hear it the first time , when she can hear her boss in an elevator from several floors away… much for super hearing, lol. The show's producers should really do a better job of catching details like that , also …did she get her ears pierced with a Kryptonite ear-piercing gun ? Considering that would be the only thing on earth that could put a scratch on her skin ;)
