Up, Up, and Away! New Supergirl Costume Revealed


 Just days after Melissa Benoist shared her thoughts on wearing the Maid of Steel's familiar red, yellow, and blue tights, Warner Bros. Television and CBS have given us the first look at Benoist in her new digs.


The new series began shooting this week and stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El/Kara Danvers/Supergirl. Benoist was formerly seen in the fourth and fifth seasons of "Glee" as Marley Rose and more recently in the Oscar nominated film "Whiplash" opposite Miles Teller.

Benoist's new Supergirl costume was designed by Colleen Atwood, who also designed the costumes for Arrow and The Flash and whose motion picture credits include Academy Awards for her work on Alice in Wonderland, Memoirs of a Geisha and Chicago, as well as an additional eight Oscar nominations for films such as Into the Woods, Snow White and the Huntsman, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Sleepy Hollow.

"In designing Supergirl, I wanted to embrace the past, but more importantly, thrust her into the street-style action hero of today," Atwood said.

Supergirl is expected to premiere in the fall and is crafted for CBS by producers Greg Berlanti ("Arrow," "Flash") and Ali Adler ("Glee," "The New Normal").

Benoist has stated that wearing the costume is daunting, but I think she'll do just fine.
