Thanks to TVLine, we get a bit of information about the upcoming Supergirl TV show via casting call information. First we find out that they are using the same people responsible for the casting of Arrow and The Flash, which is promising. Then we get some Character information about two character, Kara Zor-El aka Kara Danvers and Alexandra “Alex” Danvers which also reveals some plot information.
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.
Alexandra “Alex” Danvers
26-year-old…Kara’s 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.
