The first trailer for the upcoming and much-awaited “Supergirl” CBS TV series has just been released and fans have been getting excited for its premiere.
As seen on the six-minute clip, Kara Zor El, played by “Glee” actress Melissa Benoist, is out in the open about her powers, different from the previous “Superman” TV series where Clark Kent would always make it a point that his true identity and his powers would be kept a secret.
According to fans, this new angle seems very refreshing and exciting.
The clip also shows cast members Malina Weissman, who was previously reported to be playing the role of Kara’s younger self.
Kara works as an assistant to a powerful executive played by Calista Flockhart, who is better known as “Ally McBeal,” based on her portrayal of the famous TV series during the 90s.
She unconsciously shows her true powers one night when her sister boards a plane that experienced engine malfunction and was set to crash.
After being exposed to the public, she, along with her sister, approaches a government organization focused on alien communications.
Kara offers herself as a defense entity, after which the head of the organization refuses to accept and tells her to just get back to fetching coffee for her boss.
She experiences temporary grief, which was then alleviated when her sister encouraged her to still pursue her destiny of helping Earth and everyone around her.
As to the treatment of the “Supergirl” CBS’ trailer, fans are saying that it gives the audience a hint of what the tone of the show will be.
According to them, it seems to be directed towards a younger market, as the soundtrack and “cheesy lines” show.
