How much fun is this trailer for next fall’s Supergirl series on CBS? It hits all of the notes that I need in a superhero show – it’s ambitious, uplifting, doesn’t take itself too seriously and makes you want to get out of your seat and cheer. Well, I sure cheered when I watched this!
Supergirl gives its creators a way to really have fun with the Superman mythos. Sometimes the Big Blue Boy Scout can be a little too perfect. He’s supposed to be! By the time we really know him, he’s kind of got it figured out. Supergirl is different. She’s growing up right in front of us. She’s learning to fly, creating her heroic persona and sorting out exactly who she is.
CBS announced the series today and anticipates the premier airing in November and taking a slot on Monday nights. The project seems to be in good hands with Greg Berlanti at the helm. Berlanti is the man behind Arrow and The Flash on the CW. Both of those series are recognized as terrific adaptations of beloved comic characters. Let’s hope Supergirl is no different.
I’ll be watching, CBS. Don’t screw this up.
