Glee star Melissa Benoist, 26, has been cast as crime-fighting DC Comics character Supergirl, aka Kara Zor-El (cousin to Superman), for new fall TV series on CBS.

Supergirl is being executive produced by Greg Berlanti, the guy behind Arrow and The Flash – so you can pretty much expect more of the same. Benoist will play Kara, who after arriving on Earth was taken in by a foster family, the Danvers, who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers.

Melissa Benoist joins fellow Glee breakout Grant Gustin (The CW’s The Flash) to land the starring role in a DC Comics adaptation from WBTV.
