There’s something about casting a Kryptonian that makes it a pretty big deal. And Supergirl’s older cousin is no exception to the rule. After a lot of rumors and false casting news, CBS has officially cast Kara Zor-El in their upcoming DC comics series.
The lucky girl is Melissa Benoist. She’s in the Best Picture nominee Whiplash, but is also well known for Glee and appearances on Homeland.
With the main character cast, there are still some major roles to fill such as the new Jimmy Olsen.
