The CW has released a behind the scenes look at how the visual effects are done on Supergirl. For all those fans who wanted to see how everything was done, now’s their chance.
We get a look at how Martian Manhunter is brought to life, various villains, Supergirl’s flying, etc. And as it turns out, the show uses a lot more CGI than one would expect. You can watch the visual breakdown for yourself below:
It seems like they just replace Martian Manhunter’s head anytime the alien form is required in a scene. Action scenes are also primarily done through CGI, with models for both actors and monsters.
SUPERGIRL is based on the DC character Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin, who after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul Cat Grant. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret agency, enlists her to help protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8/7c on The CW, and is available the next day on The CW App.
