‘Supergirl’ TV series has recently released a casting call for the upcoming drama for CBS and it features Superman and two lead roles in the Supergirl series.
After the recent success of comic books turned TV series, production for the Supergirl TV series is ramping up. Recently, ‘Supergirl’ was picked up by CBS and recently two new leading roles were revealed for the TV series. In addition, details surrounding Superman were also leaked onto the Internet.
According to TVLine, the first casting call for DC producer Greg Berlanti’s ‘Supergirl’ centers on the origin of Supergirl on the planet Krypton, as well as the family who took her in.
This is the casting call for the lead role of Kara Zor-El aka Kara Denvers or simply ‘Supergirl’.
For Kara Zor-El aka Kara Danvers, the show is eyeing Caucasian females, age 22 to 26, to play 24. As the series mythology goes, Kara at age 12 was sent from her dying home planet of Krypton to Earth, where she was taken in by the Danvers, a foster family who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers. After repressing said skills for more than a decade, Kara is forced to bust out her super moves in public during an unexpected disaster. Energized by her heroism for the first time in her life, she begins embracing her abilities in the name of helping the people of her city, earning herself a super moniker along the way.
The other lead role currently being cast is that of 26-year-old Alexandra Alex Danvers, Karas gorgeous, brilliant, science-minded foster sister. Growing up, Alex was partly jealous of her sibling yet also fascinated by her abilities, prompting Alex to learn as much as she could about alien anthropology, sociology and culture. Today, Alex works for a secret government organization and, alongside her heroic sis, will face many challenges, both mundane and super.
