Kal-El finally gets to catch up with cousin Kara.
It had to happen eventually! We'll finally get to see a new incarnation of Superman for the 'Supergirl' TV series as season 2 arrives on our screens this fall. He'll be portrayed by Tyler Hoechlin, who's best known for playing Derek Hale in 'Teen Wolf'.
Melissa Benoist is Supergirl
The first family image of Supergirl and Superman together has been unveiled, and it's also our first glimpse of the new Clark Kent's outfit. It's very similar to Henry Cavill's 'Man Of Steel' suit, though perhaps a little cleaner. It was designed by costume designer Kiersten Ronning, who also did Supergirl's outfit and also happened to work on the set of 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'.

'Worlds Finest' join the two young heroes together for the first time.
Sure, 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' had a massive weekend opening, but that didn't stop critics from lambasting everything about it. Fortunately, the DC world has redeemed itself with a more critically approved crossover on the small screen as The CW's The Flash and CBS' Supergirl team up on the latter show episode 'Worlds Finest'.
Supergirl and The Flash team up for the first time in crossover show
Critics seem to much prefer this pairing to Zack Snyder's blockbuster and for good reason. It saw Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) meet a new ally in the shape of Barry Allen or The Flash (Grant Gustin) on the first season episode of 'Supergirl' entitled 'Worlds Finest', which aired yesterday (March 28th 2016) crossing over both super-universes and cable networks.
The network has decided not to air the scheduled episodes due to their plots’ similarities to the recent events in Paris.
CBS has announced it will not air planned episodes of ‘Supergirl’ and ‘NCIS: LA’ on Monday out of respect for the events in Paris. Both shows' plots featured similarities to Friday’s attacks on Paris, which left at least 129 people dead.

Monday’s planned episode of ‘Supergirl’, titled ‘How Does She Do It?’, revolved around a large city being hit by bombings. CBS will now show the episode ‘Livewire’ in its place, which was originally set to air on November 23rd.
Supergirl has struck - let's meet the main people in her extraordinary life.
'Supergirl' finally premiered on CBS last night (October 26th 2015) and with it we were introduced to the main cast; reviving characters from the original DC comics as well as unveiling new additions to the ever growing superhero world. We learn that Supergirl is the cousin of Superman, similarly now working for the media, who also now has an adopted family and a desire to bring her powers to the surface.
'Supergirl? Not... Superwoman?'
Of course, last night's Pilot also saw the introduction of some new villains, namely Vartox who's known in the comics as the nemesis of both Superman and Power Girl (a later incarnation of Supergirl), and Astra; the twin sister of Kara's mother Alura who's determined to seek revenge on the latter, kill Kara and rule the world. So who else is about to have a massive impact on Kara's life?
Superman's cousin hits the small screen with Melissa Benoist as Supergirl.
Feminist comic book fans have been saying all along that there needs to be more female superheroes brought to screen, and now that desire comes to fruition tonight as 'Supergirl' flies on to our television screens for the first time.

Calista Flockhart is “100 percent” behind her husband’s return to flying, five months after he had a plane crash in which he suffered a broken pelvis.
Calista Flockhart is fully supportive of her husband’s return to flying. Flockhart’s husband, Star Wars actor Harrison Ford, was involved in a plane crash earlier this year which left him in hospital for a number of weeks. Ford’s quick thinking ensured no one on the ground was injured but it was certainly a near miss.

Glee discovery Melissa Benoist stars as Kara Zor-El
The CBS series is being billed as a superhero-story-meets-rom-com in TV show form and it tells the story of Superman, aka Kal-El’s lesser known cousin, Kara Zor-El. As her alter ego Supergirl, Kara will face crime and injustice, but her greatest nemesis could turn out to be internet piracy.

‘Supergirl’s’ all important costume was designed by Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood, who is also responsible for the look of DC characters ‘The Flash” and ‘Arrow’ on the CW.
