Kara Zor-El takes center stage as Supergirl in a promotional banner for the Season 2 premiere tomorrow. Melissa Benoist dons the iconic costume with a patriotic red, white, & blue colour scheme overlaid.
The biggest talking point of Season 2, besides the move over to The CW, is the inclusion of her slightly-known cousin, Superman. No big deal. Not only that, but Supergirl will come face-to-face with the other DC/CW heroes in a four-night crossover event with Arrow, The Flash, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow to battle The Dominators.
Here’s the synopsis for Season 2, Episode 1 – “The Adventures of Supergirl”:
THE CW HAS A NEW HERO AND SHE’S BRINGING SUPERMAN WITH HER — When a new threat emerges in National City, Kara (Melissa Benoist) teams up with her cousin, Clark Kent/Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin), to stop it. Kara is thrilled to have family in town but it leaves Alex (Chyler Leigh) feeling a bit left out.
Meanwhile, Hank (David Harewood) and Supergirl are stunned by the pod that came crashing to Earth.”
Glen Winter directed the episode with a story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg, and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Jessica Queller.
Supergirl will premiere on The CW tomorrow night at 8pm ET.
