Despite still being three months away, the news about the Supergirl television show continues to arrive at a brisk pace. I have been impressed with how the CBS and the producers have been able to keep the publicity smoldering.
And I have to thank places like Supergirl TV , DC Comics, and other entertainment sites for keeping me up to date. Some of the news is so good I feel I need to share here.
My optimism for the show continues to grow.
Warner Brothers had a special screening of the Supergirl premiere last week.
I haven't been able to learn the wheres or the whens. What I can tell you is that Melissa Benoist was on hand to introduce the show and apparently take some questions. (She answered that Supergirl's hero is her mother Alura.)
It seems like Warner Brothers and CBS are sparing no expense, making a giant Supergirl to hang above the marquee sign.
And here is a picture of Melissa Benoist being swamped with young fans looking for an autograph.
Almost too fantastic!
I love that Benoist seems to really be embracing the role.
But more news has come out about Supergirl's presence at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con.
This conventions has always been on my bucket list of shows I would love to go to. But in particular, I wish I was going this year since the Supergirl show seems to have something of a presence there.
Take a look at this link:
Apparently there will be a Supergirl Preview Cart which will shuttle people from the convention center into the adjacent Gas Lamp district in San Diego where a bunch of hotels and restaurants are located.
The cart will be showing a Supergirl preview. Those who ride it will get a Supergirl t-shirt and cape. And they'll be able to spare their legs some use.
Entertainment Weekly that Warner Brothers will be releasing a Supergirl tote bag for those at the con. Beautiful.
And Supergirl has even got some love from TV Guide! She will be one of the covers commemorating the SDCC. On sale to all those, like me, not going to SDCC on July 7th. Just an absolutely beautiful cover! Benoist just exudes Supergirlness!!!
As for the premiere, it will also be shown 'for the first time' at the convention as well. The Superman Home Page has a list of all the Superman related panels and shows at SDCC here:
But the big one is the Saturday premiere showing.
