We can all breathe a sigh of relief, there’s no midriff on show here.
The first images of Melissa Benoist as ‘SUPERGIRL’ in CBS’ upcoming series have just been released and of course all the talk is about the heroine’s new costume. The ‘Glee’ actress has dyed her hair blonde to portray the superhero, with the network already giving the series a one season commitment.
Melissa Benoist is your new 'Supergirl'
‘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. The costume keeps the character’s traditional colour combination of red, blue and gold, going for a long sleeved top with the famous ’S’ logo, a red skirt, over the knee boots and a long flowing cape.
The 26 year old 'Whiplash' and 'Glee' star will portray DC's 'Supergirl' in the forthcoming TV series.
After an extended search, CBS has announced that it has cast ‘Glee’ star Melissa Benoist to head up its superhero show ‘SUPERGIRL’. She’ll play Kara Zor-El in the network’s series adaptation of the DC comic book story.
The 26 year old actress is most famous for portraying Marley Rose in the fourth and fifth seasons of Fox’s tween steamroller ‘Glee’, but she also has credentials on the more serious side of acting, with a role in the 2014 indie movie Whiplash, which was recently nominated for five Academy Awards including ‘Best Picture’.
