New Supergirl Trailer Shows Lots of New Footage, New Superpowers
The newest trailer for CBS's upcoming Supergirl adaptation shows lots of new footage, mostly involving Kara flexing the muscles of her many superpowers:
We've seen Kara demonstrate her flying abilities and heat vision in previous trailers, this trailer shows off several other abilities, such as her super strength, super speed, super hearing, and freezing breath.
Based on previous trailers, many have been concerned that the first mainstream female-led superhero adaptation would place an inordinate amount of focus on her personal life, which would trivialize the powerful character. This trailer seems to balance the two a little bit more, by placing most of the emphasis on the action and the character, and then just vaguely hinting at a love triangle at the end. It's fine for Supergirl to have subplots involving Kara's love life, so long as it doesn't take over everything. It's not like The Flash or Arrow are immune to relationship drama.
Supergirl premieres on CBS at 8:30pm ET on October 26.
