As reported by TV Line earlier today, CBS’s highly anticipated superhero show, Supergirl, has found their Lucy Lane. According to the site, Jenna Dewan Tatum has been cast in the recurring role as the lesser-known little sister to Lois Lane. You might remember Jenna Dewan Tatum from such films as Step Up and Grudge 2. You may also know her as Channing Tatum’s wife. Or perhaps you know Channing Tatum as Jenna Dewan’s husband.


The character is described as “brash, funny and successful in her own right,” as well as being an ex-girlfriend to Jimmy Olsen, played by Mehcad Brooks. If the trailer was any indication, our titular hero has a thing for Jimmy, so this could turn into a bit of a love triangle.

It remains to be seen exactly what they have planned with the character and if they’ll be utilizing her Superwoman identity later in the series.
