When Supergirl first debuted only three short years ago, it was a massive deal. To have the Girl of Steel be the debut female-led live action show under the #DCTV umbrella sounded across the zeitgeist in a way that heralded not only how remarkable a character Kara Zor-El is, but how much her type of story was needed in our mass-media marketplace. A couple short years later, Wonder Woman echoed this impact cinematically. In a lot of ways, Supergirl’s status as an icon rose to a new level with the debut of her television show.
Black is definitely her color.
Word broke this summer that acclaimed TV actress Odette Annable had been cast on Supergirl in the role of Reign—the show’s primary antagonist this season. However, so far, Annable’s character has been a lot more motherly than menacing.
Until now, that is. We were just given our first glimpse at Annable as Reign…
Hey there, Couch Clubbers. Meg here, back again in National City and, man oh man, talk about an emotional week for Supergirl.
I hope you don’t mind, but I’m actually going to do things a little bit differently this week. To start things off, let me tell you a little about myself.
Hey, hey! I’m the Couch Club writer for Arrow, but I was asked to write for this week’s episode of Supergirl.
I was a little nervous coming into tonight’s episode because my only exposure to the show was during the crossover event and I know it has a pretty big following. So, I didn’t know if I was going to totally get everything going on in terms of characters, storyline, etc. However…I lucked out!
Hey, guys! Meg, here. Hope you don’t mind me stepping in like this—I know I’m not your usual Supergirl Couch Club representative. I guess you could say I’m a tourist in National City this season, but I’m really excited to be here... Even though it looks like I’ve picked a pretty rough time to drop by. I mean, we’re jumping right into one seriously bummed out Girl of Steel this time around, aren’t we?
Clear some space on your DVRs and pop some popcorn, #DCTV is back with a vengeance this week as The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow all return. The CW’s shared DC Universe left us with cliffhangers galore at the end of last season, and we’re dying for some answers. Will Barry Allen escape from the Speed Force? Which members of Team Arrow survived that explosion? And what the heck did the Legends do to time?
Of course, we know the real question that’s been keeping all of you up nights: Is the Couch Club going to return?
The latest hero to join the cast of Supergirl can likely relate to being far from home.
Hailing from the sixth planet of our solar system, the one and only Saturn Girl will be arriving in National City this season on the hit CW series. Played by Bollywood star Amy Jackson, Saturn Girl will mark the U.S. debut of the British born actress.
If you’re a #DCTV fan, you’re going to want to mark November 27, 2017 with a big X on your calendar. That’s the first day of this year’s four-part CW crossover…and it’ll find our heroes landing on Earth-X.
Boring, sleepy study halls can be brutal. In fact, if you don't have enough work to occupy you, study halls can be enough to stop your school day dead in its tracks and make time slow down to a painful crawl. We've all watched the minutes on a clock tick by at what seems like the slowest possible pace. But, given all the excitement constantly happening at Super Hero High, you’d imagine the students must long for the occasional dull moment and rest from evil-minded plots.
