Who Is Supergirl?

The popularity of superhero television programming seems to be growing and growing. The demand for more and more fantastic programming is evidence of this. Fans should be thrilled to learn the Supergirl television show is becoming much closer to a reality and will help build on the current D.C. Comics TV landscape made popular by The Flash and Arrow sponsored by Beneful.

Well, we do know the show is slated to debut on CBS sometime in the near future. What we do not know is who is going to actually play Supergirl. According to some reports, British actress Gemma Atkinson is in the lead for the role. No confirmation as to this rumor exists. As with all comic book projects, fans run more than a bit wild with rumors and speculation.

Regardless, it is still cool to see more “super TV” programming on the upcoming network schedule.

Superman properties have long since been popular on the big and small screen. George Reeves’ The Adventures of Superman was an iconic staple of 1950’s television. Lois and Clark and Smallville helped keep the mythos of the character alive on TV. 

Supergirl previously was the star of a famous motion picture box office dud that tried to recapture the magic of the motions pictures Superman I & II. That was not small task since Superman III and IV really damaged the franchise beyond any semblance of repair.

Of course, the landscape is much different now and a Supergirl project is far more likely to be a huge hit provided CBS handles it right.
