Is everybody as pumped for the Supergirl episode of Smallville, scheduled for an October 8 airing?
Well, just in case you weren't excited by the concept, maybe some pictures from the episode will stir you from your doldrums. Over on CBR, the CW has released from stills from the episode as well as the official episode solicit. Here is the link: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=28582
And here is the solicit:
“Supergirl” (TV-14) (HDTV)
LAURA VANDERVOORT RETURNS AS DC COMICS’ CHARACTER SUPERGIRL — Clark (Tom Welling) is stunned when Kara (guest star Laura Vandervoort) returns to Earth and tells him Jor El sent her to stop the dark force that is coming because he doesn’t believe Clark can handle it. Meanwhile, Lois (Erica Durance) confronts Gordon Godfrey (guest star Michael Daingerfield), a shock jock radio DJ who has been crusading against heroes, after he threatens the Green Arrow (Justin Hartley). However, after Godfrey is possessed by the dark force, he takes Lois hostage and Clark and Kara have to come to her rescue. Mairzee Almas directed the episode written by Ann Cofell Saunders
Nice description with Jor-El realizing he needs someone 'take charge' to battle Darkseid and that person is Supergirl. And Glorious Godfrey as a shock jock is a stroke of genius.
But that picture of Laura Vandervoort in a near-Supergirl uniform, standing next to the American flag is just spectacular.
But that's not all! There are a lot more photos.
In this one, Vandervoort sports what looks to be more of a combat uniform with the blue leather jacket and pants.
And what could be better than a little Linda Lee thrown in for good measure!
Tip of the hat to blog friend Gene for sending me this link to a CW promo clip on YouTube where Vandervoort talks about Supergirl and the episode. Here is that link:
Man, Vandervoort just sounds like a Supergirl fan, invoking Helen Slater, crossing her fingers that a Supergirl movie will be made, and sounding excited to play the role again.
One more week!
