The last couple of years have been a time of great joy for those of us that enjoy watching our favorite super heroes on the small screen. Shows like Arrow, Flash and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. proved that there was a solid interest. Then shows such as Daredevil raised the bar. But one thing we’ve been missing is a female-led series. The folks at DC decided they would rectify this situation by bringing one of their most famous of female heroes off the comic book shelf and giving her own series. Enter Supergirl, a CBS series that may just be the show we’re looking for. And now, the trailer is finally here and it measures in at an impressive 6+ minutes. Check it out below and see what you think.
So I’m not sure what to think about this… On the one hand, you have what appears to be the plot of every terrible “small town girl in the big city” romantic comedy made in the last 20 years. On the other hand, you have airplane-lifting, truck-exploding action. On the third hand, you have a trailer set to a crappy pop song, pretty much ruining the credibility of the show in one fell swoop. And I’m guessing the bubble-headed lead isn’t going to garner much sympathy from all the ladies out there who were hoping for a strong female super hero.
I’m going to go ahead and give this one a pass. I’ll probably check out the first couple of episodes just in case the trailer isn’t at all representative of the actual program, but I’m already bracing myself for supreme disappointment.
What say thee, Bastard Readers? Is this what you were expecting from a CBS Supergirl series? Have your hopes and dreams been crushed or are you already marking your calendar?
And speaking of calendars, expect Supergirl to premiere sometime in November.
