As you can see, they are making Supergirl look less like a sexual object, since the skin of her legs aren’t showing and her breasts are not as pronounced.

Benoist will be playing Kara Zor-El, with Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, Chyler Leigh as Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, and Faran Tahir as The Commander. Dean Cain and Helen Slater are also in the roster but with unknown roles.

The suit was designed by Oscar winner Colleen Atwood (Memoirs of a Geisha).

Atwood said, “In designing Supergirl, I wanted to embrace the past, but more importantly, thrust her into the street-style action hero of today.”
