A new trailer for CBS’ upcoming DC Comics TV series Supergirl has been officially released by Canadian broadcasting channel Global.
It’s apparently one very similar to a trailer leaked online a while back that was taken down as fast as a speeding bullet...well, you know the deal. Starring Melissa Benoist as Supe’s cousin Kara Danvers, aka Supergirl, the show also features Calista Flockhart, Mehcad Brooks, David Harewood, Jeremy Jordan and Chyler Leigh, as well as former Supergirl Helen Slater and former Superman Dean Cain as Kara’s Earth parents, Sylvia and Fred Danvers. Check out the new action-packed trailer:
Here’s the series synopsis attached to the Global trailer:
In the vast DC Comics Universe of super heroes, the rich mythology of Superman, the planet Krypton and the House of El is perhaps the most famous and instantly recognizable. Enter Supergirl (Melissa Benoist). Born Kara Zor-El on the doomed planet Krypton, the preteen Kara escaped at the same time as the infant Kal-El, but didn't arrive on Earth until many years later after being lost in the Phantom Zone. Protected and raised by her adopted family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to hide the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin. Years later, at age 24, living in National City and working as an assistant for Catco Worldwide Media mogul Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), Kara has spent so many years trying to fit in that she forgot to ever stand out. All that changes when she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always destined to be.
Supergirl will premiere on Monday, Oct. 26 at 8:30 PM on CBS (and I can only assume on Global as well), and will then move to its regular Monday 8 PM slot the following week, on Nov. 2. Will you be watching?
