In this latest Supergirl promo, it’s not bubbly like the first trailer, or all action-packed and dramatic like the one that followed. This one gives us a mix of action and a bit more emotional level to Kara than before. But not too emotional where it loses it’s girl power.
The series is trying to show that it can be all things to all people, but hopefully it works to where it finds a balance that viewers will accept during this cynical and dark age, where all things are dark and pessimistic. The Flash was at that point, then it got darker and darker with each episode. And not that I mind that, but you don’t want to see the same formula used in these genre-specific shows.
I have hope that Supergirl will shine a light without getting too bubbly, but be dramatic enough to where it’s taken seriously in the superhero fandom.
Supergirl stars starring Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, David Harewood, and Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
