Supergirl’s extended first trailer was… divisive… to say the least, although the subsequently leaked (or “leaked”) pilot seemed to get a better overall reception. Some people enjoyed the fresh take on the superhero genre while others complained about a lack of Superman and talked seriously about canon like there was a crisis on finite Earth; and the elephant in the room – girls and girly things. One thing everyone agreed on when it came to the trailer – the soundtrack was terrible.
Supergirl’s new, and much shorter, trailer titled ‘Her Story’ thankfully does away with the cheesy pop music and looks all the better for it:
That looks great, why didn’t you just release that in the first place? They’ve also released a new promo poster showing off Supergirl mid-flight – but with a freakishly large fist that I just can’t unsee…
Supergirl will begin airing on 26 October and stars Melissa Benoist as Supergirl, and with Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, David Harewood and Mehcad Brooks. I, for one, am quite looking forward to seeing how it develops – how about you?
