Earlier this week, photos from the set of CBS' Supergirl emerged, giving fans their first look at Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, following the official photo of the actress in costume as her superhero alter-ego. As production continues on the pilot, we have even more photos of Melissa Benoist in her Kara attire, where she is again seen wearing glasses. As we pointed out a few days ago, it seems likely that Kara is taking a page from her cousin Superman's playbook, using spectacles to conceal her true identity, since she isn't seen wearing them in the official Supergirl image. Other than that, the photos don't reveal too much, except that, perhaps, part of her duties as the assistant to Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) is to carry coffee at all times.
Of course, even though we have seen the official costume, it isn't known if Kara will be seen in her iconic outfit right away. The plot follows Kara, who has lived on Earth for several years after leaving her home planet of Krypton. She was raised by the Danvers family and taught to conceal her incredible gifts. However, at the age of 24, Kara decides to embrace her gifts and become a true hero.
Supergirl also stars Mehcad Brooks (James Olsen), Laura Benanti (Alura Zor-El), Chyler Leigh (Alexandra "Alex" Danvers), Jeremy Jordan (Winslow "Winn" Schott), David Harewood (Hank Henshaw) and Faran Tahir (The Commander). Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman) and Helen Slater (Supergirl), who have previously played Superman and Supergirl, also have mysterious roles on the show. Take a look at the images below, and stay tuned for more as shooting continues.
