We love it!
Most superhero shows — Arrow, Daredevil, The Flash — have shown males as the lead heroes which is why we're excited to see some ladies finally kicking evil butt tool
Last night we got just that in the premiere of Supergirl starring Melissa Benoist!

To help promote her new show, the former Glee star stopped by The Late Show to chat it up with Stephen Colbert about being a superhero and role model.
But our favorite moment came when the actress talked about why Supergirl is a feminist superhero — and we couldn't agree more with her stance!
Ch-ch-check out the 27-year-old's response (below) and let us know what you think of the new super show!

Are you SUPER excited!
Supergirl is still over a month away, but that doesn't mean that we can't start to get excited about it!
The first look dropped back in May and looked like a cross between a teen soap and Devil Wears Prada, but with capes — which left us with mixed feelings on how the show might turn out.

But the new trailer gives us a lot more action and in turn, a lot more potential for this show being a winner!
Now we can only hope it sticks around long enough for a crossover with Flash and Arrow!

We've already got our first look at Supergirl, but now there's yet another trailer to get you excited for the latest superhero TV show.
CBS released the second trailer for the DC Comics series starring Melissa Benoist as a twenty-something cousin to Superman on Monday…
But with great sneak peeks come great controversies.

That's because some fans of comic book equality are questioning why Supergirl isn't referred to as Superwoman.
When asked, the showrunners gave a pretty safe answer saying only:

This is some super casting news!
Supergirl already looked like it was going to be must-watch-TV this Fall, but the latest news out of the CBS comic book series is simply out of this world.
That's because Jenna Dewan-Tatum just joined the cast as the iconic Lois Lane's little sister Lucy Lane!

The superhero drama already boasted an all-star cast including Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan, and Laura Benanti, so we couldn't have imagined it getting any better… but it certainly did!
Supergirl doesn't premiere until this Fall, but this announcement is more than enough to hold us over.
Will U be tuning in??

It's a match made in perfect harmony!
Glee co-stars Melissa Benoist and Blake Jenner got married… months ago! Sources have confirmed that the cute couple secretly tied the knot back in March!

Blake, who played Ryder Lynn on the popular musical dramadey, has been spotted wearing a wedding band since April, but now we finally got a glimpse of Melissa's ring on THAT finger!
She was seen wearing a silver band at Comic-Con, which was a pretty big weekend for the 22-year-old. She was in San Diego, California promoting her upcoming CBS show, Supergirl.
The lovebirds got hitched in March once the 22-year-old's superhero drama finished filming. An insider said the sweet ceremony was:

Well this isn't great news for CBS. Apparently Supergirl, the new CBS drama which is planned to air its pilot next fall, had high-quality copies leaked online to major file-sharing sites last night. This means Supergirl is now out there for anyone feeling dangerous enough to obtain an illegal copy of the pilot.

By this morning, it had reportedly already been download 120,000 times! Hopefully that's a good thing as they really have no idea how many actual copies are out there, but we're guessing it's only going to grow!
CBS recently showed an extended trailer for Supergirl at its upfront presentation in New York last week and it's gotten quite the buzz. They plan on adding it to their fall lineup on Monday in the pivotal 8pm anchor spot.
The show, created by the producers of Arrow and Flash, stars Melissa Benoist from Glee in the title role of Supergirl. It will follow her as she decided after 24 years to stop hiding her powers and embrace the role of a superhero and helping mankind.
Let's hope for a silver lining and that the show gets great initial reviews from these viewings!

Up, up, and onto the small screen!
Warner Bros and CBS have finally revealed their Supergirl, and she looks pretty darn good!

In two brand new pics (above), former Glee star Melissa Benoist beams in her new costume as Superman's cousin Kara Zor-El!
The muted tones and varied textures are very reminiscent of Henry Cavill's Man Of Steel look. And we'd say Melissa is pretty much pulling it off!
She proudly shared the pics herself immediately after their release, tweeting:
