Listen up everyone because thing's are about to get super. So it turns that CBS is going to film a show evolving around the all american beauty Super Girl! I am guessing you want to know who will play super girl. Okay okay i'll tell you. The lucky girl who is going to play S.G. is the one and only Glee's Melissa Benoist.
There has been considerable speculation about which young actress would fill this popular character's shoes. Among the top contenders were The Vampire Diary's Claire Holt, and Elizabeth Lail of Once Upon a Time.
The hour long show centers on Superman's beautiful cousin, Kara Zor-El (Super girl), who journeys to Earth after escaping the destruction of Krypton and is taken in by a foster family, the Danvers. Although the Danvers teach her to be careful with her astounding abilities. She keeps them hidden for a number of years, when disaster strikes, Kara is suddenly compelled to use her powers in public. The 24-year-old is finally ready to put her abilities to good use and fulfill her destiny as a superhero!
The pilot was written by Ali Adler and Greg Berlanti, best known for The Flash TV series and its upcoming feature film adaptation. Adler and Berlanti will also serve as executive producers, along with Sarah Schechter. I am positive that this will be an amazing show!
In addition to her role as Marley Rose on Glee. Benoist has been super busy with big screen projects, notably the Oscar-nominated Whiplash. The actress has at least four films slated for release in 2015, including the dramedy Danny Collins, in which she co-stars with Al Pacino. Now there is something I am excited for!Supergirl is expected to air on CBS by the end of the year.
I know what your thinking. But the end of the year will come soon and when it does you know what I will be doing. Catch you later!
