Supergirl is ready to fly… for the Eye.
CBS has given a series commitment to an hour-long drama about Kara Zor-El, the DC Comics heroine who escaped the planet Krypton amid its destruction. Having hid all this time on Earth the powers she shares with “her famous cousin” (as the official logline cheekily puts it), 24-year-old Kara decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and “be the hero she was meant to be.”
The pilot (which was first announced two weeks ago) was penned by Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow), both of whom will exec-produce alongside Sarah Schechter (of Berlanti Productions) and Warner Bros. TV.
Though there was some talk that the series might not actually be titled Supergirl, TVLine has confirmed that is the name. (So much for my suggestion The Blher.)
Laura Vandervoort of course recurred as Kara on Smallville, but now is the star of Canada’s Bitten. In her stead, who would you cast as 24-year-old Supergirl?
