Months after announcing the official casting and giving Glee star Melissa Benoist the lead role in the series, CBS, Berlanti Productions, DC Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Television have now officially released the “First Look” trailer to their upcoming new television series based on Superman’s cousin Kara Zor-El, who’s better known to DC Comics fans and readers as “Supergirl“!
Featuring over six minutes of footage from what may very well be the first few episodes of the show, Supergirl sees Kara as a 24-year old woman who works in a media news corporation in National City owned by Cat Grant. Adopted by the Danvers family after landing on Earth and learning to conceal her powers and identity, Kara has yearned to use her powers for good and be a hero. She soon gets her wish however when danger suddenly turns up and she rushes in to the rescue, revealing herself to the public eye and requiring her to don a symbol and image like her famous cousin.
Supergirl starts airing sometime this November on Mondays in CBS.
