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.
"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.
