Melissa Benoist Teases 'Unbalanced' Kara Danvers In 'Supergirl' Season 3


Melissa Benoist

Melissa Benoist has undoubtedly made the role of Kara Danvers, aka Supergirl in the CW series her own. With writers able to weave both her personal life and that of her being a superhero together on the show successfully, we could be about to see the balance shift, as Kara struggles with her identity.

Lena And Kara's Friendship Will "Grow" In 'Supergirl' Season 3


Melissa Benoist

Without a doubt, the friendship shared between Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) and Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) in the second season of The CW series 'Supergirl' was one of the most talked-about aspects of the show. That doesn't look to be something that will be slowed down moving forward, but things could be about to change in a big way.

With just under two months to go until the series makes its return, more information is coming out about the series and what we should expect from its third outing, and when a fan pressed someone who works behind-the-scenes on the show for more information about Kara and Lena, we got a little bit of a tease for what's to come.

'Supergirl' Will Reveal Season 3 Villain In Season 2 Finale


Melissa Benoist

Though it originally started out as CBS' staple superhero series, 'Supergirl' took a trip to The CW following its first season when it failed to rack up the sort of viewers that CBS would have liked, joining the likes of 'Arrow', 'The Flash' and 'Legends of Tomorrow' when it arrived. Now as a fully-fledged member of the Arrowverse, it's enjoying ample success throughout its second season and has already been confirmed to return for a third later this year.

Melissa Benoist takes on the titular role as Supergirl, otherwise known as Kara Zor-El, with Mehcad Brooks and Chyler Leigh joining her on the cast in the roles of James Olsen and Alex Danvers respectively. Fans were also hugely excited this season to see the introduction of Teri Hatcher as the villainous Rhea. Hatcher had of course in the past played Lois Lane in 'The New Adventures of Superman' and Ella Lane in an episode of 'Smallville'. It seems the DC Universe is one she cannot - or one she does not want to escape.

Patriots Day Review

Excellent

The third time's a charm for Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg, who previously teamed for the true life adventures Lone Survivor and Deepwater Horizon, both films that spent too much time glorifying rah-rah heroism to properly tell their stories. But this dramatic thriller, which recounts the events surrounding the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, is a startlingly visceral experience, allowing for a lot more humanity in the characters. Which actually makes them feel both more honest and more heroic.

Wahlberg plays Tommy, a street cop who feels like no one notices that he's rather good at his job. When two brothers (Alex Wolff and Themo Melikidze) explode bombs at the marathon's finish line, Tommy leaps in to help the injured. And due to his local knowledge, he also helps advise FBI investigator Richard (Kevin Bacon), who is working with the local police commissioner (John Goodman). As the frantic manhunt for the bombers extends over the following days, Tommy's wife (Michelle Monaghan) tries to get him to rest, but he pushes on. And with the whole city helping the cops, the brothers are eventually chased into the neighbourhood of beat cop Jeffrey (J.K. Simmons) for an intense showdown.

This film manages to get the balance right between gritty action and inspiring heroics. Berg mixes documentary footage in seamlessly, grounding everything in reality, and he lets the actors draw out the flaws in these real-life people. This makes them much easier to identify with, which in turn makes the action sequences that much more involving. There's a shootout in here that is perhaps one of the most outrageous ones ever put on film, even more remarkable because it's true. And while Wahlberg is the only character who gets some proper depth, he plays Tommy beautifully, bouncing off everyone else in ways that add meaning and energy to the film.

The Flash-Supergirl Crossover Episode Seems To Win More Fans Than Batman V Superman


Melissa Benoist Grant Gustin

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'.

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.

'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.

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?
