DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television have been dominating the small screen with hit shows like Arrow, The Flash and Gotham they have cornered the market for live-action super heroics in our living rooms and with those shows returning and the additions of DC Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl joining them DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television reign has no end in sight. Saturday night they took over Hall H for the Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment Screening Block panel, a three-hour event at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2015; featuring both screening of new footage and cast Q&As.
On the Supergirl panel: Series star Melissa Benoist is joined fellow cast members Mehcad Brooks (James Olsen), David Harewood (Hank Henshaw), Chyler Leigh (Alex Daners), Jeremy Jordan (Winn Schtt) alongside executive producers Ali Adler, Sarah Schechter, Andrew Kreisberg, and Greg Berlanti; and, once again, Geoff Johns.
Adler said that Supergirl was a "story that needed to be told. You'll go into it seeing her as 'female,' and leave seeing her as 'powerful.'" Johns said that it's important for women to be involved in the production of every show, not just Supergirl.
Kreisberg said the show is heavily influenced by Richard Donner's Superman, and aims to "bring light into the world." Following the conclusion of the Supergirl Q&A, a modern dance troupe performed on stage, leading into a screening of the Supergirl pilot.
