Take a Look at CBS’ Supergirl in the New Trailer

It’s not a bird. It’s not a plane. It’s not a man. It’s Supergirl. In the new drama from the world of DC Comics, Superman’s cousin, Kara Zor-El, embraces her superhuman abilities and becomes the hero she was always meant to be. This Fall on CBS.

The fact Superman already is established in her world makes this show incredibly interesting. There were some talks originally about having Supergirl crossover into Arrow or Flash, but as far as we know Superman isn’t an established player yet. So either those talks were dropped, or things may start advancing faster than we thought in the CW’s DC universe.

Overall, we’re pretty split here on this show. On the one hand, we’re looking forward to a kick-ass female lead superhero show. On the other, this feels kinda weak, and almost less “superhero” and more “chick flick” at times. Granted, this trailer is surely composed of 100% pilot episode footage, so really, who knows how the season will flesh out characters and plot.
