New SUPERGIRL Images Offer a Closer Look at the Cast

     July 15, 2015


CBS has released the first cast images for Supergirl, and while they’re not exactly exciting, they’re pretty to look at. The series stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin who’s discovering her burgeoning superhero skills while maintaining her civilian identity as an assistant to media mogul Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), both of whom you can see below (with Kara in full Supergirl garb).

The photos also show Kara’s foster sister Alex (Chyler Leigh), whose shadow she grew up in. Former Daily Planet photographer (and love interest) Jimmy Olsen (Mechad Brooks) also makes an appearance, along with Winn Schott (Jeremy Jordan), Kara’s tech-savvy colleague. There’s also Hank Henshaw (David Harewood) the head of a super-secret agency that enlists Kara’s help in protecting the citizens of National City.
