WE FINALLY HAVE A SUPERGIRL!

CBS confirmed earlier this week that Melissa Benoist (Whiplash, Glee) will play Kara Zor-El, aka Supergirl, in their upcoming show.

The description of the show is that she “escaped her home planet of Krypton amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she has concealed the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now, at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.”

That just makes me wonder, if Superman exists in this universe as her “famous cousin,” does that mean we’ll have a new Superman, Lois, Jimmy Olsen, etc etc?

This is exciting. It’s one step closer to the show becoming a reality and, since CBS owns half of the CW and Supergirl is being produced by the same team behind CW’s hit shows  and The Flash, the possibility of a team-up is certainly possible. At the very least, they will all know of each other in some way.

What an age we live in, nerds.
