Glee’s Melissa Benoist to star as CBS’ Supergirl

Melissa+Benoist Glee Season 4+Episode+10

CBS has found its Supergirl! Melissa Benoist, who can be seen in Glee, will star in the series following the adventures of Kara Zor-El. Greg Berlanti is working on the series, who is also the executive producer for both The CW’s Arrow and The Flash. He will share responsibilities with Ali Adler. This news comes from The Hollywood Reporter.

Here’s Benoist’s reaction to becoming Supergirl.

Check out this before and after photo that Stylist Riawna Capri posted. Coincidence?


In the comics, Kara is the cousin of Superman, making her one of the few survivors from the planet Krypton. It was rumored that Gemma Atkinson was going to play the heroine, so fans of hers would probably find this news disappointing. It seems like Glee is a common theme, since The Flash’s Grant Gustin is also a Glee alum.

Check her out in Glee below.

Do you guys think she’ll be a good Supergirl?
