‘Supergirl’ – Melissa Benoist Talks About Performing Her Own Stunts, Dream Superpower, and More

First Look_Melissa Benoist as Supergirl3

Synopsis:

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.

Stars: Melissa Benoist as Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen and Lauren Benanti as Kara/Alura Zor-El, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, Chyler Leigh as Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow “Winn” Schott, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, Dean Cain, Helen Slater, Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord, and Jenna Dewan-Tatum as Lucy Lane.

‘Supergirl’ will premiere on October 26th at 8:30-9:30pm before it moves to its primetime 8-9pm time slot on November 2nd.

‘Supergirl’ – First Look at Jenna Dewan-Tatum as Lucy Lane

Supergirl_Banner

Here’s our first look at Jenna Dewan-Tatum as Lucy Lane, Lois Lane’s younger sister, in CBS’s upcoming ‘Supergirl.’

“We hope to explore the history that Lucy has with James Olsen — or, as Lucy knows him, Jimmy Olsen,” the show’s executive producer Ali Adler told EW. “I think we’re going to bring in her father. She not only plays a romantic foil with whatever Kara and James are brewing, but people will also be surprised that she’s really a woman’s woman. She and Kara develop their own friendship, too. We’re not just bringing her in to purposefully create tension. She serves a larger story drive.”

Supergirl_Iddo Goldberg

According to ComicBook.com, British-Israeli actor Iddo Goldberg (Defiance, The Tourist, Salem, Peaky Blinders) has been cast as Dr. T.O. Morrow, aka Red Tornado on CBS’s upcoming ‘Supergirl.’

Warner Bros. Television character description, “Red Tornado is the most advanced android the world has ever seen. Designed by scientist T.O. Morrow for the U.S. Army as the ultimate superweapon, he soon becomes sentient, posing a grave danger to National City — including the people Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) cares about most.”

As of yet, it is unknown how exactly Goldberg will play both Morrow and Red Tornado. It’s possible that the showrunner’s might fuse both characters through an accident to fit the storyline. In the comics, Morrow is a supervillain and created the android, while Red Tornado is a superhero and is part of the Justice League.
