Glee’s Melissa Benoist cast as ‘Supergirl’

Glee’s Melissa Benoist has been cast as Supergirl in the upcoming CBS adaptation of the DC comic book.

This is amazing news!!! I love Melissa!

Though no longer on the current season of Glee, Melissa can been seen in movie theaters now in Whiplash.

I am definitely looking forward to this series. I think Melissa is going to be amazing as Kara Zor-El!

Melissa Benoist is the second Glee alum who has landed a superhero gig on TV. The other one of course is Grant Gustin who plays Barry Allen in the hit series The Flash on The CW.

I’m gleeking out right now. Such great news!
