Glee's Melissa Benoist Cast As 'Supergirl'!

Congrats to Melissa Benoist — she’s Supergirl!

The 26-year-old actress, who played Marley on Glee, is headed to the CBS and Warner Bros. Television series, Supergirl.

Supergirl centers on Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin, who was born on the planet Krypton and escaped amid its destruction years ago. After arriving on Earth, Kara was taken in by a foster family, the Danvers, and they taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers.

Now 24, Kara feels un-empowered, a slave to having repressed her innate abilities. She’s still pretty, but with her face hidden behind glasses and her hair pulled back, she doesn’t know it herself. An unexpected disaster forces her to use her powers in public. Energized by her heroic deed, for the first time in her life, Kara begins embracing her extraordinary abilities. She begins helping the people of her city and they soon take notice — and she’s even given a new moniker: Supergirl.

    I wonder if the show makes it past the pilot episode. I hope it’s not a failure like the Wonder Woman TV show a few years ago.
