CBS has released the first official look at Superman’s Fortress of Solitude via an image from the February 29th episode of Supergirl, and it lets us see for the first time how the iconic DC Comics location will appear in this world.
In all honesty, it’s clear to see that the show has followed the comic books and original Superman movies very closely, so it’s nothing radically different. Still, it’s exciting to finally get a look at it.
For more details on this episode of Supergirl (titled “Solitude”), here’s the newly released description:
Kara travels to Superman’s Fortress of Solitude in hopes of learning how to defeat Indigo (Laura Vandervoort), a dangerous being who can transport via the Internet and who has a connection to Kara’s past. Also, James’s relationship with Lucy reaches a crossroads, on Supergirl, Monday, Feb. 29 (8:00-9:00 Pm, »

Isn't that the same Fortress set they used in Smallville? Regardless, here's the official description: Kara travels to Superman’s Fortress of Solitude in hopes of learning how to defeat Indigo (Laura Vandervoort), a dangerous being who can transport via the Internet and who has a connection to Kara’s past. Also, James’s relationship with Lucy reaches a crossroads, on Supergirl, Monday, Feb. 29 (8:00-9:00 Pm, Et/Pt) on the CBS Television Network. Seeing Vandervoort return to this world should be a lot of fun, though visiting such an iconic Superman location without the Man of Steel having any sort of physical role in the series seems daft. Why not set Supergirl in a post "Death of Superman" world if him showing up is such an impossibility? It's beginning to get silly at this stage. Regardless, the show is definitely improving as time goes on, and this does »
RelatedSupergirl/Flash Crossover Is Happening: Find Out How and When
Gustin, Zod bless him, added a bit more fuel to the fire by revealing via Instagram the internetwork crossover event’s title: “Worlds Finest,” its conspicuous use of odd punctuation perhaps offering the meet-up’s biggest clue. »
Storyline details have not yet been disclosed, but Grant Gustin‘s speedster will make tracks for Supergirl and join forces with Melissa Benoist’s Girl of Steel on Monday, March 28, CBS announced on Wednesday.
Supergirl‘s Kara has a most unexpected homecoming — returning to an intact Krypton! — when the CBS series serves up its take on the classic Superman comic “For the Man Who Has Everything.”
As seen in the photos below for “For The Girl Who Has Everything” (airing Feb. 8), Kara’s friends must find a way to save her life when a parasitic alien attaches itself to her and traps her in a dream world where her family is alive and Krypton was never destroyed. The premise »
Fans of the hit new series Supergirl have likely been delighted that veterans of past Superman movies and TV series have appeared or will appear at some point during the first season. Dean Cain, Helen Slater, and Laura Vandervoort are among the most recognizable, but many a fan have wondered if Tom Welling could ever appear on the show. After all, many of us spent ten years with him when he inhabited the role of Clark Kent on Smallville, which chronicled the character’s journey from teenage farmboy to Superman.
Welling recently sat down for an interview with Buzzfeed to reflect on his Smallville days, among other things, but what was perhaps the most interesting thing he had to say was left out of the interview. Here’s what he said when asked if he would reprise his role of Superman/Clark Kent on Smallville, which was later tweeted by »

“Smallville” star Tom Welling thinks it would be “kind of odd” to reprise the role of Clark Kent on CBS’ “Supergirl.” “There’s people who would like it… there’s people who don’t like it but I will tell you that no one has ever actually asked me to do it,” he told Buzzfeed’s Jarett Wieselman, who shared the quote on Twitter. “So, I don’t know. It would be kind of odd. I don’t know who he is at that point. He would obviously be Superman.” CBS has already tapped a former “Smallville” actress to star in “Supergirl. »

Thus far in Supergirl's first season run, Superman has only been seen in the shadows, with producers teasing that the Man of Steel may appear at some point to help out his less famous cousin. We know that the show has been casting a much younger Kal-El for flashback scenes in this first run of episodes. Now, we have word from Smallville's very own Clark Kent about the possibility of Tom Welling returning to reprise the role of Superman. But it only sounds like wishful thinking at the moment.
Tom Welling played the high school aged Clark Kent on The CW's Smallville for ten seasons, holding the longest tenure of any Man of Steel thus far. BuzzFeed has a new interview where Tom Welling looks back at his long run as Kal-El, the last son of Krypton, and discussed the possibility of returning to play the role. Here's what he had to say. »
There are a few things you can always count on during every Supergirl episode: Kara’s curls will always look flawless, no matter how fast she’s flying. Cat Grant will deliver a one-liner better than anyone in National City.
And, most of all, the CBS series will make you really appreciate your family.
In this Monday’s episode, it wasn’t Kara’s evil aunt who was wreaking havoc, or Cat’s icy mother who was slinging insults. It was Winn’s homicidal father, Winslow Schott, Sr. — aka The Toyman, due to his toy-making past — that was causing all the trouble. »
Supergirl fans, you might want to savor the fun, quippy side of Winn Schott while it lasts. Because in tonight’s episode (CBS, 8/7c), that lightheartedness is nowhere to be found.
Though Jeremy Jordan‘s lovesick It whiz has mostly been utilized for a well-placed one-liner, the character will enter much darker territory when he is reunited with his estranged father, Winslow Schott, Sr. aka DC Comics’ The Toyman (played by Revenge alum Henry Czerny).

Vandervoort has been cast in the role of 'Indigo', aka 'Brainiac-8'.
"She’s gonna look awesome. Definitely not gonna look just like Laura," said Kreisberg.
"Being one aspect of the 'Brainiac Program', she comes in through computers. But she has a very interesting backstory. She was one of the 'Fort Rozz' prisoners.
"But how she came to be, and how she ended up in the prison, and what she’s been doing on Earth is part of the fun and the surprise of the episode..."

The DC Comics character Indigo is a strong-willed, living supercomputer that was sentenced to Fort Rozz after turning against the people of Krypton. Now on Earth, nothing will stand in her way.
The casting is an amusing touch, Vandervoort played Kara/Supergirl on the long-running "Smallville" which was also produced by Warner Bros. Television. Vandervoort will make her "Supergirl" series debut in episode fifteen and is the second former Supergirl to play a role in the series - the other being Helen Slater.
Jeff Branson is also hopping onboard, recurring as Master Jailer who is the forceful and unrelenting jail guard on Fort Rozz. He shows no mercy and is hellbent on catching all of the Fort Rozz escapees. That character will debut in the fourteenth episode.

Seeing as how the hit new TV series Supergirl employs several veterans of the Superman family history, chief among which are Dean Cain and Helen Slater, many fans thought it was just a matter of time before Smallville’s Supergirl, Laura Vandervoort, entered the fray. Today is the day that we can confirm that Ms. Vandervoort will indeed appear on the show, although it will be in a much more villainous capacity.
It was revealed today at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour that she will play a recurring role as Indigo, and her character is described as follows:
“A living, strong-willed supercomputer that was sentenced to Fort Rozz after turning against the people of Krypton. Now on Earth, Indigo will let nothing stand in her way.”
If that sounds similar to Brainiac, it should. You see, Indigo is technically Brainiac 8, at least in the comic books. Given the »

While there is no new Supergirl tonight on CBS, this piece of news is going to make you quite excited, especially if you are a fan of The CW’s Smallville. It was announced today during the Supergirl panel at the ongoing Television Critics Association’s winter press tour that TV’s first Girl of Steel, Laura Vandervoort (Bitten), has been cast on the CBS series in a recurring role.

Earlier today, at the Television Critics Association press tour, CBS announced that former Supergirl Laura Vandervoort (Smallville; Bitten) would be guest-starring on an upcoming episode of their hit superhero drama Supergirl.

Now on Earth, Indigo will let nothing stand in her way." Vandervoort will make her debut as the villainess in Episode 15. Vandervoort is the second former Supergirl to appear on the show after Helen Slater, who plays Kara's mother. And if that wasn't enough, the producers teased that all three Supergirls (Benoist, Vandervoort, & Slater) will be appearing together in an episode during the latter half of this freshman season. Additionally, the show has also cast Jeff Branson (I Spit On Your Grave) as another DC Comics character, »
