‘Supergirl’ TV show rumors: audition spoilers, Superman cameo, costume

Auditions are currently underway for CBS’ upcoming TV show Supergirl aka Kara Danversas and new details have emerged, including some audition videos.

The videos feature actors reading for the part of photographer Jimmy Olsen, who is describing the heroics of Superman saving a family from a burning building to Kara. While, Kara wants to know if he (Jimmy) was scared of Superman’s superpowers when he first sees them. Based on the scene, Kara will be working alongside Jimmy.

CBS entertainment chairman Nina Tassler described the DC Comics icon as “a very strong, independent young woman. She’s coming into her own. She’s dealing with family issues. She’s dealing with work issues.”

She continues in the Entertainment Weekly interview, “It’s a female empowerment story. If you look at the strong female characters we have on the air, it really is resonant of that … We’re big feminists. It’s her intellect, it’s her skill, it’s her smarts. It’s all of those elements. It’s not just her strength, which she does have.”

According to the ComicBookMovie, “The dialogue from these audition scripts may not match the lines we will eventually hear on the show, but it sounds like Superman’s presence will be important to the series.”

Though the actress who will play the lead is not finalised yet, CBS has a costume design ready.

“We have seen the costume,” she said and added, “Awesome costume.”

The costume was being made by Oscar winner Colleen Atwood, who also did the costumes for Arrow and The Flash, Tassler stated.
