‘Supergirl’ prepares for liftoff on CBS.

The actors met on the set of the hit TV series in 2012 and became engaged a year later, and now it has been revealed the couple quietly exchanged vows almost four months ago.

SAN DIEGO — If your job is saving people, you want the right outfit and Melissa Benoist says her blue-and-red Supergirl suit fits her, well, to an “S.” Benoist, known for roles in Glee and Whiplash, loves the “sophisticated, elegant” Colleen Atwood cape-suit-skirt ensemble she wears for CBS’ Supergirl (Oct. 26).The 26-year-old actress, who stars in the upcoming CBS series Supergirl, talked all about her insane training to play the comic-book character Kara Zor-El, noting that boxing was a big part. “I don’t think I’ve ever hit anyone before, and so I definitely had to learn technique – like how to actually punch someone and not hurt yourself more than you’re hurting the person you’re punching,” she told the crowd at the cast roundtable on Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con. “And core work and Pilates and [plyometrics], a lot of it.” “The motivation [from working out], the drive, it definitely affects [you],” the former Glee actress said of her new mindset, spurred on by her increase in physical activity. “I don’t have a choice … I can’t sit down and be like, oh, I’m done. The newlyweds headed to Europe for their honeymoon, and they documented the vacation in a series of photos on without mentioning the fact they had tied the knot. News caught up with the 26-year-old actress at Comic-Con International in San Diego, where she was promoting her CBS show Supergirl and was seen sporting a tiny silver band in her ring finger.

She says it has its own transformative power. “I relate a lot to Kara Danvers (and her) quirky” nature, Benoist says, referring to the earthly alias of the super-powered Krypton native who is Superman’s cousin. “When I put the suit on, I just feel stronger and I feel brave and I feel like I can kick some butt. … It’s comfortable, too.” Kara, a mild-mannered — at least, initially — assistant to media titan Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), is “at the precipice of learning who she really is and coming into womanhood. … She’s finally made this decision to use these powers after choosing to not use them for over a decade. And when you get it right, watching the result is exhilarating,” said Benoist. “It’s a really, really cool feeling to know what it felt like, the energy I had to exert to create those flying scenes.

James is established and confident, a Superman confidante who left Metropolis to expand his horizons in Supergirl’s National City. “He’s grown up a little bit. But I’m trying to,” she said, adding an appreciative shout-out to her stunt double (who was also the stuntwoman for Jennifer Garner on Alias!). “I grew up as a dancer, so it feels like a leotard and skirt and tights that I wore when I was a ballerina,” she said, adding that the corseted cape can be a bit painful sometimes. Benoist also said she tries to incorporate her ballet training into her movements on screen. “What I think is cool is to try to bring kind of a femininity to her strength.

I don’t blame anybody for that, but I think we’re changing with the times.” “They’re both having this internal struggle of wanting to be (their) higher self,” he says. “James is the product of somebody winning that internal battle and saying, ‘I’m going to do what’s best for me. What I’m more excited about (is that) women have always been superheroes, but now is the time for one to be at the forefront of the story.” “There was a little girl from Paris yesterday in a Supergirl suit.
