The current plans for CBS to bring DC’s Supergirl to the small look that much closer today after it was announced on twitter that the actress who will assume the title role as Kara-El will be Melissa Benoist (of Glee), most fans will know the character she will play is Superman’s cousin who rockets to Earth at a different point in time.
This is not the first time she has appeared in extended media either appearing in DC’s animated universe, Smallville and the not-so-well regarded movie of the character (a rights extension by the Superman: The Movie’s producers).
Of the casting the actress tweeted;
I wish there was a superhero emoji
Which was quickly followed up with;

We’ll keep you updated on more castings for this show as they happen.
