CBS’ “Supergirl,” aside from it being the network’s only superhero themed show as of the moment, has the unique distinction of being one of the shows centered around a superheroine. Aside from this, the network has proven itself capable of pulling this off, with villains and allies that come hand in hand with being a comic book adaptation. Based on recent interviews with executive producers Ali Adler and Andrew Kreisberg, fans and viewers should expect more interesting characters in the upcoming episodes. WARNING: This article will contain spoilers for the rest of the first season of “Supergirl.”
According to Comic Book, “Supergirl” executive producer Ali Adler, during a roundtable with reporters, revealed that more interesting female characters will be heading Kara Danvers’ (Melissa Benoist) way. However, the only big hint she dropped was that some of these female characters will definitely be “super.”
This, of course, opens the doors for a variety of female characters to appear on the show, and speculation is rampant, especially as Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan-Tatum), who becomes Superwoman in the comics, is already on the show.
Another female character to look forward to when “Supergirl” returns in January is Department of Extra-Normal Operations Agent Cameron Chase.
There is also a lot of speculation that a character of the Bizarro kind will be appearing on the show soon, thanks to several hints and teases that executive producer Andrew Kreisberg dropped on actor and director Kevin Smith’s podcast, “Fat Man on Batman.”
On the podcast, while they were talking about “Supergirl”, Smith mentioned that Kreisberg had shown him a picture of a character that got them both excited.
Afterwards, while talking about who else they will be featuring on the show, Kreisberg talked about the Toyman’s appearance and mentioned that Bizarro will also appear on the series. However, many fans are speculating that Kara will be dealing with Bizarro- Girl, and not Bizarro himself.
In addition to this, Kreisberg talked about how they, as a team, have discovered that sky is the limit with comic book live action television adaptations, which makes fans excited as more outlandish and interesting characters and villains might have a chance of appearing on the small screen.
