Production began on CBS’ Supergirl pilot this week, and DC Entertainment has now released the first official images of actress Melissa Benoist suited up as the iconic heroine. The costume looks very similar to the classic comic book version, but of course, it has a few tweaks – most noticeably the lack of yellow behind the ‘S’ symbol.
The Supergirl costume was designed by Academy Award winner Colleen Atwood, who created the suits for Arrow and The Flash. The designer had this to say on the process of crafting this costume. “In designing Supergirl, I wanted to embrace the past, but more importantly, thrust her into the street-style action hero of today.”
Check out the images below, and stay tuned for more news as we have it. Supergirl is expected to premiere on CBS this fall.
