    The Supergirl Discussion Thread



    Supergirl trailer is out and it blew my expectations out of proportions... just as I was complaining I'd rather see a Batgirl TV show (and I probably still do) but this looks fucking amazing and I really hope it beats out Gotahm on ratings. Dare I say it, looks better than Flash/Arrow production value wise. And it looks really fun too. I'm not a huge fan of the Superman mythos, and it'll be a challenge for them to find villains worthwhile her time but I'm sold now. And, while I still don't think she looks good as supergirl, the actress does seem pretty awesome too so I'll look past that as well. I'd love to see some Arrow cast members pop up namely Felicity/Oliver/Ray at some point just because I think they'd offer up some pretty fun interactions and they have said that actors could feasibly pop up if DC can arrange it (over the head of the networks themselves).

    Yeah really looking forward to this. I am a fan of the Superman story. Enjoyed Smallville back in the day and can get on board with this. It Looks more in line with Flash than Arrow in that it's more light-hearted which is cool. Plus Supergirl is HOT! I can't think of any negatives to this. How did I only just find out about this again?

    They've also got a Titan show and Legends of Tomorrow coming in the universe.

    I think it'll be better than Flash though I'm not as warm on Flash as others so there's that.

    She looks good when she's not in the Supergirl outfit. Not a fan of her in the outfit though. Reminds me of Brie Larson in her Community appearances with the glasses.

    I never been a fan of Superman and his family with Supergirl/Superboy, but this show could be really sweet. With shows like Arrow/The Flash doing so well, I think this show could do really well and open some eyes. The only negative I saw is, how is it that Supergirl is horrible using her powers versus her cousin Superman? Were both of them sent to Earth the same day, you would think that since she was older than him, that she would of perfected the powers and just kept them on the shelf. ​

    I think the trailer made it pretty clear that she'd spent most of her life avoiding the use of her powers, whereas Superman is generally trained on the farm growing up. That's why she wouldn't be adept at using them, as she's only really started during the events of this series.

    Yeah but in the movie Man of Steel, he was refrained from using his powers as well. Theirs a part when Clark has the chance to save his Father from the Tornado or Twister[forgot which one] and his Dad tells him no. Maybe Clark had more freedom living on a farm versus Superman living in the City growing up I imagine.

    It's not in the same universe, it's in the Flash/Arrow universe.

    I'm sure he still used his powers akin to Smallville pre-starting to be a hero. Farm work and what not. And he wasn't actively avoiding to use his powers either like Kara is.

    Re: The Supergirl Discussion Thread

    Although I myself am not the biggest Superman fan (Will say though I did enjoy Man of Steel). I got to admit I was pleasantly surprised by how good this looks. I mean Supergirl apart from her costume (Probs a work in progress like Daredevil) looks great. And I've also heard reports that when it comes to villains they have already announced that Toyman will be making an appearance which is pretty cool. As well as Vartox. So I'll be looking forward to seeing just what they do with them.

    Re: The Supergirl Discussion Thread

    Is it going to be on the same channel as Arrow/Flash/Legends of Tomorrow?

    Its on CBS but by the same creators. Crossovers still possible but they'd go through DC and probably wouldn't be as large scale.

    Re: The Supergirl Discussion Thread

    Following in the footsteps of The Flash before it, the Supergirl pilot has leaked to the internet WAY before it's air date. I'll be watching it soon, I imagine.

    Watched the pilot. Thought it was laughably bad in almost all aspects. Really can't think of a positive thing to say at this point so I guess I'll just leave it at that. I'm sure some people will get off on this show mind you, but I doubt I'm going to be one of them.

    Re: The Supergirl Discussion Thread

    I think I might hold off on it since I'm not in a hurry though I did watch Flash's pilot ahead of time.

    I tend to ignore super hero show flaws, I do think Flash/Arrow could be better in many ways but I love the super hero genre enough that, unless it's extremely bad (IE: Gotham) or it doesn't really interest me (Agents of Shield), I'll watch it in spite of that.

    Just watched the pilot. It was fun for what it was but not even close to Gotham's pilot. Not a big Superman fun but I'll give this a chance this coming fall.

    I haven't seen the pilot episode yet but based on the trailer it looks abysmal. from what I've seen in the trailer there is no way that this piece of crap is on par with Gotham, Flash and Arrow. The trailer reminded me of this:

    I haven't seen the pilot, but the first few episodes of Arrow weren't great, so I'd be tempted to give this more of a chance to get going.

    Gotham is a boring show and the pilot was awful so there is no way it's gonna be worse...just because it isn't dark people are shitting on it but here's a news flash we aren't the target audience so really what we think doesn't matter

    I'm also pretty anti-Gotham so you'll get no argument from me on that one. As for the other point, I know I'm not the target audience but does that also mean I shouldn't be able to voice my opinion on what I thought was a pretty poor pilot? I realize that nobody who IS the target audience is going to give a crap what I think about the show, but I'll reserve the right to cry foul when something sucks all the same.

    I'm not going to pass judgment on the show just from this one episode, as there's always a chance it will pick up steam once it gets going. If so, great, I'll be happy to watch. If not, well, I won't be shocked given what we've already seen.

    Re: The Supergirl Discussion Thread

    I'm with Fuji on not judging a show based on its pilot, my rule of thumb is to always give a new shoe 3 episodes if I am interested in watching it. If it can't grab me in 3 episodes then I usually abandon it. Rarely am I wrong after that judgement though one exception has been Arrow. I did not care for the first season at all but it got better.
