Supergirl casts former Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter

22 June 2016 12:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Supergirl’s second season has just cast a DC veteran in the role of the President of the United States and it is rather, ahem, wonderful.

Lynda Carter, the Wonder Woman of the 1970s series based on the Amazon Princess, has been cast and will make her introduction in the third episode of the season before appearing in multiple episodes.

Executive producers Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti previously stated a few months ago they wanted to cast Carter as the President in the first season, but could not fit her in their schedule, especially as the second season was up in the air at the time. Now that Supergirl has been renewed, and is moving to The CW, they’re able to finally make that wish come true.

Carter won’t be the only DC veteran to appear in the series. Supergirl »

Wonder Woman joins the cast of 'Supergirl' as...

21 June 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The CW is really bringing out the big guns for Supergirl. Set for its big move to the network from CBS this fall, the series will officially introduce Kara Danvers' (Melissa Benoist's) famous cousin Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) to the series right out of the gate in the first two episodes of the season. But that's not all!  Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, will join the cast as the President of the United States. Not since Battlestar Galactica's Laura Roslin have we been this excited for a commander in chief. Carter is locked for multiple episodes and will first appear in episode three. So one smooth move from Superman to Wonder Woman.   Carter was crowned Miss World America in 1972 and most famously played Wonder Woman from 1975-1979 in the now iconic television series. Supergirl has been known to bring in actors who've played superheroes previously as a tip of the hat to fans, »

Superman to appear in Supergirl Season 2

6 June 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Supergirl gets ready to move to The CW in the fall, the hero’s famous cousin is now set to appear in its second season. Superman will play a role of the first two episodes of the returning series.

Throughout season one Supergirl, Jimmy Olsen and other characters frequently mentioned Superman and Clark Kent. He would either be seen from a distance, a hallucination as a young boy or even interact with Kara through an online message service, offering advice in times of need. Now the search is underway for an actor to portray the Man of Steel in Supergirl’s premiere episodes.

Executive producer Andrew Kriesberg said “Greg (Berlanti), Ali (Adler) and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of Supergirl. Superman will be appearing in the first two episodes of the new season and we cannot wait to »

23 April 2016 3:18 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Laura Vandervoort interview: The Canadian actress talks Bitten, Goosebumps and her role as Supergirl.

The Hollywood News’ Ben Read sits down with Laura Vandervoort. The actress has also appeared in the likes of Ted, HBO series Ballers, V and Smallville. Check out Ben’s Laura Vandervoort interview below.

Laura Vandervoort interview

The second decade of the 21st Century has been hailed as the ‘Golden Age’ of television, with every genre from fantasy epic to political thriller receiving intelligent, popular and compelling material on a regular basis.

This has been no different for small screen productions involving Martians, mutants, creatures and of course, caped crusaders. As a result, various comic and book adaptations have hit the small screen over the past few years.

Tremendously talented Candian actress Laura Vandervoort, is certainly no stranger to any of these genres. Having already worked on Smallville, Bitten and Supergirl, the former girl of steel »

‘Supergirl’ Sails Toward Future in Cliffhanging Season Finale (Spoilers)

18 April 2016 11:09 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Beyond lauding the pilot, Variety’s initial review of “Supergirl” posed several questions, the most pointed (or at least pragmatic) being whether this sort of unabashed superhero series – having thrived on the network’s kid sister, the CW – could take off on CBS. The answer was not entirely, which didn’t prevent producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and their team from applying a very “The Flash”-like formula to this handsome, fun, chaotic, slightly geeky addition to DC’s stable of TV heroes.

As with their other shows, the series chewed through great chunks of story, revealing Supergirl’s secret identity to multiple characters, introducing additional heroes (as in J’onn J’onzz, a.k.a. Martian Manhunter), and digging deep into comic-book mythology. While those weaned on comics might readily know the effects of red Kryptonite or the rules surrounding alternate universes, these series simply dive in and let »

Laura Vandervoort, who played Supergirl on "Smallville," had to channel some of her own super strength when wrestling the ocean tide for her bikini bottom. Vandervoort is on vacation in Cancun with her boyfriend. Doesn't seem like she's too upset about the near stripping. That's what vacation's for, right?  Gotta say ... she definitely looks better in a bikini than a cape. Read more »

Supergirl Enlists Original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter For Season 2

24 March 2016 7:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Several of the Dctv shows have made a habit of bringing in actors associated with past incarnations of the main characters (John Wesley Shipp in The Flash, Helen Slater and Laura Vandervoort in Supergirl, for example), and that trend looks set to continue with the addition of original TV Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, to CBS’ Supergirl series.

Though nothing seems to be set in stone just yet, the show’s producers have confirmed to EW that they had plans to bring Carter on board this year but couldn’t get it done, so now they’re looking to make it happen during season 2. Plus, they even spill which character they have in mind for her:

We had the perfect role for Lynda Carter,” [Greg] Berlanti said of the Wonder Woman alum. “We couldn’t work out her schedule. Next year.” Interjected Kreisberg: “We’re going to do it, we’ll just do it next year, »

Earth's male super-powered population had better be prepared, as none other than Maxima is coming to Supergirl - and if she's anything like her comic book counterpart she's going to be searching for a suitable mate.

Supergirl episode 15 review: Solitude

Indigo and ourfirst glimpse of the Fortress of Solitude feature in this week's solid standalone episode of Supergirl...

This review contains spoilers.

1.15 Solitude

The frequency with which I declare an episode of Supergirl the best yet it getting a bit silly, but that's mainly because we started out with such a good concept so badly done that, when those pieces come together in any kind of compelling way, it's worth pointing out. We want the show to be its best self, but it hasn't always arrived there. This episode, however, is one of the better examples of what the series can do.

It's not without its problems, of course, as the campiness of the show can more often than not make the special effects look a bit naff. Indigo, for example, looks incredibly silly, and that's before she stretches her arms in order to turn two keys »

'Supergirl' Easter Egg Teases Legion of Super-Heroes

1 March 2016 11:43 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

CBS' Supergirl aired its 15th episode last night, Solitude, which gave us our first look at the Fortress of Solitude occupied by Kara's (Melissa Benoist) cousin, Superman. We had previously seen a sneak peek at this iconic location before the episode aired, but for those who tuned in last night, there was a special Easter Egg. One of the items many fans noticed in the Fortress was a Legion Flight ring, which you can see below in a photo from Entertainment Weekly writer Natalie Abrams.

The episode centered on Kara Zor-El and Jimmy Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) visiting the Fortress of Solitude, in search of a way to defeat Supergirl's new nemesis, Indigo, played by Laura Vandervoort. Much like the early Superman movies, this Fortress appeared to be made of ice crystals and featured a nod to the Kryptonian Museum in the comics, with statues of Jor-El and Lara, along »
