When CBS announced that they were doing a Supergirl TV show with Faye Dunaway, I figured that was their way of telling us that their break room is fully stocked with ready-to-go crack pipes, because they’re obviously smoking some seriously fucked up shit if they think it’s okay to do Supergirl without Faye Dunaway! Doing Supergirl without Faye Dunaway is like doing Supergirl without Faye Dunaway. CBS is going through with it and has already ordered a full season. Supergirl started shooting this week so CBS released this picture of Melissa Benoist from Glee in full Supergirl drag. And err…
I’m not really getting Supergirl from this. I’m getting “know-it-all honor student who really wants to be popular and shows up to yearbook picture day in a Supergirl costume because she thinks that’s cute.” Maybe that’s what they’re going for? This is what would show up to your party if you called Rent-A-Character and said, “I want Blake Lively as Supergirl but I only have $5 and maybe a handful of pennies.”
I really don’t mind the costume since the costume is almost just like Helen Slater’s costume (although, it is missing a Popeye’s in the background). But her facial expressions make her look like she’s either on the verge of losing it and breaking down into tears or like she’s got the wet shits in a bad way and is trying to hold it in. She’s probably thinking to herself, “Fuck, I wish Faye Dunaway was in this.” There’s a full pic after the cut.
