CBS Supergirl Melissa Benoist Trailer

I know what everyone's going to say at the end of this trailer: How come everyone in the cast already seems to know that Kara is Supergirl? Her sister, her boyfriend, James (not Jimmy) Olsen (played by Mehcad Brooks), the DEO agent. Didn't THE FLASH take a whole season to do that (and he's supposed to be the fast one)? Seems the only one who doesn't know is Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) who named the Maid of Might after her initial appearance.

Honestly, at this exact moment, that's not bothering me at all. After seeing this mini-movie of Kara (played by Melissa Benoist) deciding to employ the powers that she only assumes she has because her cousin has them, after seeing her recreate the iconic "Man of Steel" (the book, not the movie) plane rescue, with a twist, and after seeing her go through costume after costume with her suitor, I am absolutely on edge to see this series! (I have to say that having Dean Cain and Helen Slater play her parents, Fred and Sylvia Danvers, is one of those expected-yet-genius touches that simply had to be done.)

So click below, watch this six-minute teaser, and let us know your thoughts in the comments. Are you excited to see SUPERGIRL this fall on CBS?
