  1. In September, it was revealed that not only was a “Supergirl” TV series in development but that CBS had ordered a series commitment for DC Entertainment’s latest series. Now, TVLine brings word on the first casting breakdown for the show that not only points to this version of Kara, but also a new character created for the show.

    According to the outlet, the producers are searching for “Caucasian females, age 22 to 26, to play 24″ for the role of Kara Zor-El or Kara Danvers (a reference to the “Linda Danvers” version of the character no doubt) as she will be called on Earth. The site notes that “as the series’ mythology goes, Kara at age 12 was sent from her dying home planet of Krypton to Earth, where she was taken in by the Danvers, a foster family who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers. After repressing said skills for more than a decade, Kara is forced to bust out her super moves in public during an unexpected disaster. Energized by her heroism for the first time in her life, she begins embracing her abilities in the name of helping the people of her city, earning herself a super moniker along the way.”

    Another character included in the breakdown, though, is Kara’s foster sister Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, who is described as “Kara’s gorgeous, brilliant, science-minded foster sister. Growing up, Alex was partly jealous of her sibling yet also fascinated by her abilities, prompting Alex to learn as much as she could about alien anthropology, sociology and culture. Today, Alex works for a secret government organization and, alongside her heroic sis, will face many challenges, both mundane and super.”


  2. I would have been annoyed if that wasn't immediately followed by "You're probably an alien." That and she's no longer the focus of every episode. For that matter, this is the most focus she's really gotten all season outside of being the Ward-Whisperer. I can deal with her knowing what the Alien writing is.

    Huh? Shes the focus of the season with being Ward's keeper, and her relationship with her dad.
