So…a trailer for the upcoming Supergirl series hit the Internet. It looked a lot like this.
My original plan for this post was to write a lengthy breakdown of my thoughts on this amazing trailer but as luck would have it Rebecca Johnson of Supergirl Radio had invited me to be part of the DCTV Podcasts Cancer Fundraiser and she suggested that we could focus on the trailer. I thought we’d talk for about an hour and we ended up going the full two hours with our thoughts and feelings on what we saw. I had a great time and it was great to just geek out like I did. I haven’t been this excited about something Superman related since right before Superman Returns came out. To be fair I was pretty excited when Man of Steel was about to hit theaters but it was a guarded, cautious excitement because while it isn’t the worst Superman adaptation that has ever been released Superman Returns had a lot of problems and I didn’t want to get my hopes up too much.
With Supergirl I am getting my hopes up.
Because it looks so freaking good.
You can find the episode of Supergirl Radio where Rebecca and I talked about the trailer by clicking on this link. I would also suggest diving into the podcast from the first episode because it’s a great show. Rebecca and her co-host, Teresa Jusino, have put together an entertaining and informative show where they talk about Supergirl in the comics and other media. I was on to talk about the animated film Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, the Justice League Unlimited episode Initiation and the animated film Superman: Unbound and I can’t thank Rebecca and Teresa enough for having me on. They are very welcoming hosts and it’s a genuine pleasure to talk with them. I look forward to doing so again in the future.
So looking forward to November.
