Nerds, geeks, super-fans – whatever you’d like to call us, one thing is for sure: there’s going to be a lot of cool stuff for genre fans to check out on TV this Fall. Information on most of the new (and returning) projects has been moderately available, and it’s always nice when the studios themselves offer up direct access for the fans. In advance of the new Supergirl TV series coming to prime-time on CBS this Fall, the network has released a 3-minute behind-the-scenes featurette designed to give fans some advance info on the new caped crusader in town.
Just last week we got our first look at Melissa Benoist all super-hero-ed up in the new Supergirl costume. This time around we take a look at Benoist in Supergirl’s alter ego Kara Danvers. That’s right, Kara Danvers is an alter ego. Remember what Bill said about her better known cousin in Kill Bil 2:
Superman didn’t become Superman. Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he’s Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red “S”, that’s the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes. What Kent wears – the glasses, the business suit – that’s the costume.
Many great actors (and Tom Welling) have donned the red, blue and, yellow tights of the Man of Steel. Recently Sam Daly followed in his father’s (Tim Daly) footsteps as the voice of Superman in the direct to DVD/Blu-Ray animated film Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, but you probably knew that already.
Ya… but bet you didn’t know that there is a secret group of Superman actors? Didn’t think so. The most recent episode of the Daly Show reveals the secret initiation ritual of The League Of Superman, as Sam is inducted by a couple of guys you should recognize.
I am going to assume that shortly after this Henry Cavil showed up, resulting in the tree house on Andrea Romano‘s yard being nothing more than a smoldering crater.
