Legends of Tomorrow

Supergirl

Melissa Benoist talked with Variety about taking on the title role in CBS‘ upcoming “Supergirl” series. She heaped praise on executive producer Greg Berlanti, saying he was an early supporter of her for the part. She also touched upon what drew her to the character.

“Not only because she’s a strong female and a female hero which I think is so important and will speak to so many people at this time right now in the world,” Benoist said. “I also was so drawn to her humanity, even though she is an extraterrestrial with powers. I was drawn to how flawed and complicated she is. She’s more complicated than you see in superheroes nowadays. Greg breathed that life into her from the get-go. He even said to me in one of the auditions, “She’s like the Annie Hall of superheroes” – and that sealed the deal for me. I was like, yes!”

Asked what being compared to the Woody Allen film meant for the character, Benoist said, “Just that she is quirky and eccentric and intelligent and on this journey of self-discovery. She’s figuring out how to be a woman and the difficulties of that.”

She went on to say that she does as many stunts as she’s allowed, including the fight scenes. “Supergirl’s fight moves are boxing. She’s really heavy-handed.” As for who will be at the receiving ends of those punches, Benoist said she knew but played coy. “I have a few ideas. I know generally who the big bad villain is.”
