After previously eyeing actresses Gemma Atkinson and Claire Holt, CBS has cast Melissa Benoist (Whiplash, Glee) as Kara Zor-El in Supergirl. Producer Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash), who co-created the series with Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) revealed at the TCA Winter Tour last week that casting was to be announced soon, since production on the pilot will begin in the near future.

The series will center on Kara Zor-El, who has been hiding in plain sight on Earth for several years, following the destruction of her home planet Krypton. At the age of 24, she decides to finally embrace her incredible abilities and become the hero she was always destined to be. It still has yet to be confirmed if Kara's superhero cousin, Superman, will appear on the series.

CBS has its "Supergirl" star, and it's... "Glee" alum Melissa Benoist? Benoist, currently in theaters as Miles Teller's love interest in "Whiplash," has been cast in the Warner Bros.-produced series, which CBS has already given a series order for next season. Adapted from the DC Comics title by Greg Berlanti (who helped pave the way for DC's current TV success with "Arrow" and "The Flash") and Ali Adler, "Supergirl" will focus on Superman's cousin Kara Zor-El, who also escaped Krypton before it exploded. As the series logline puts it, "Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be." Benoist was one of the second-generation "Glee" stars for parts of the Fox drama's fourth and fifth seasons. She doesn't have an Amazonian build, »
