Look! Here's two Supergirls in one place!

Posted on March 4, 2015 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Well, here’s something you don’t see very often: not just one but two Supergirls.

Two Supergirls

On the left, we have Melissa Benoist, who plays Kara Zor-El in the new CBS Supergirl; on the right, we have Helen Slater, who played Supergirl in the 80s movie Supergirl.

They’re together in one place because Slater is also appearing in the new Supergirl, as is former Superman Dean Cain, although their exact roles in the show are yet to be revealed.

They’re probably not playing Supergirl’s biological parents (or should that be ‘biological’, given Kryptonian reproduction?), as Laura Benanti has already been cast as Supergirl’s mum Alura Zor-El, but maybe their adoptive parents? No word yet if the show intends to make it a triple and rope in Smallville’s Supergirl, Laura Vandervoort. She's currently slumming it on Bitten, so could probably do with a change.

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
