Supergirl will soon begin its third season on The CW, and the cast of the DC show is eager to share some details with the fans.
Entertainment Weekly sat down with some of the cast to discuss the upcoming season. Melissa Benoist, who plays the titular character, notes that Supergirl is not in the best place at the start of season 3:
“She’s really fragile at the top of the season, but only people closest to her will see that, because she’s almost solidified on the exterior and is really trying to push down whatever pain she’s felt about losing Mon-El. In turn, she has made this massive decision to say goodbye to her humanity and really embrace being an alien. We hear her say quite a bit in the first five episodes, ‘I’m not a human, I come from a different planet, so this doesn’t apply to me.’”
After the ending of season 2, it’s easy to understand why she is so down. Meanwhile, Lena Luthor blames herself for helping her brother Lex tweak his device, and inevitably hurt her friendship with Kara. Katie McGrath says:
“What you’re seeing with Lena is the guilt of feeling that she is somehow responsible of ruining this great love of Kara’s. So while she’s feeling good that she saved the world, or helped save it, she feels very responsible that her best friend is hurting and she’s trying to, in a way, bring Kara back to the friendship that they had, [because] she’s lost that a bit.”

Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

The role of Kara’s mother, Lara, has also been recast for this season, with Erica Durance joining the cast. Speaking about the switch, Melissa Benoist said:
“It is different. I loved Laura Benanti, but Erica brings something really fun to it. I’ve only had a few things with her so far in hologram, and we’ll see her more often. That’s always a really touching experience for Kara, to be able to talk to her in any shape or form, so we’ll definitely see more of that.”
Finally, Adrian Pasdar will join the show as new character Morgan Edge, a ruthless real estate developer who’s wants put him at odds with Supergirl. Benoist thinks Ege will make a fantastic new addition to the Supergirl rogue’s gallery:
“Adrian is killing it. He’s maniacal in a Wall Street way. He’s very manipulative and whip smart and just a sharp businessman. Edge and Supergirl look at each other as playthings. Neither one is threatened by the other, but both have a mutual hatred for each other.”

7 Reasons Why ‘Marvel’s Inhumans’ Failed
The premiere episodes of the ABC Marvel’s Inhumans has already aired with good ratings for ABC, stronger than the Season 4 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the final season of Agent Carter but this does not mean it is a success.
Marvel’s Inhumans has been dragged through the mud with critics, many lambasting it as the worst thing Marvel Studios has ever been involved with, and a serious low-point for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I have seen these episodes of Inhumans and I can honestly say that ever criticism is apt. It’s even more apt to say that Inhumans has failed as a series because of its incredibly low approval for its pilot episodes. So how did it happen? Who’s to blame? What reasons can be found to why something that Marvel Studios were trying to do for years has now been reviled by many?
