It’s been common knowledge for a while now that a series adaptation of Supergirl
is in the works. With production for the pilot episode kicking off this week, it’s now time for us to get the very first look
at Melissa Benoist wearing Kara’s costume.
We’ve known for a while that Glee
's very own Melissa Benoist had gone blonde for the role and even got to see her new hair, but those shots of hers in theSupergirl
costume are a first. Colleen Atwood, Oscar-winning designer who also crafted the suits for The CW’s Arrow
and The Flash
, created the costume and pretty much sticked to the original one. According to him, the Supergirl costume was designed “to embrace the past, but more importantly, thrust her into the street-style action hero of today”.
Even though Supergirl
is officially left out of DC’s Cinematic Universe, it seems like Kara will take action in a very interesting world of her own. Alongside Melissa Benoist the series will star Mehcad Brooks, Calista Flockhart, David Harewood and Chyler Leigh, with Laura Benanti, Jeremy Jordan, Faran Tahir, Helen Slater and Dean Cain in supporting roles.
Check out both photos of the all-new Supergirl
below and leave a comment to let us know what you think of the costume.
