New ‘Supergirl’ Teaser: A Closer Look At Her Villains.

Up until now, the only footage we’ve seen from Supergirl has been taken from the pilot (which leaked online earlier this year and has been met with a positive response from those who tracked it down).We’re still more than a month out from the premiere of CBS’ entry into the superhero game, (not counting 1990’s The Flash), but just to make sure we don’t forget, the network has dropped a new Supergirl trailer, this one heavy on footage of the villains Superman’s cousin Kara will be facing off against in her debut season.Supergirl won’t debut on CBS until October 26, but the network released a new trailer on Monday night with a lot of new footage including a look at some of Kara’s powers plus a bunch of new villains. During tonight’s Supergirl trailer, fans got their first look at Justice Leak as Hellgrammite, a Superman villain created in the ’60s and then reinvented in the ’80s before finally ending up squaring off with the Man of Steel’s cousin starting later this year on TV.

But now, at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be — and boy, do her powers rock, as evidenced in the new trailer. The highly anticipated DC Comics series has been shooting for a while now, so we get to see scenes from upcoming episodes, and there are some very cool reveals featured here.

However, we did get a clear glimpse of Peter Facinelli’s Maxwell Lord, the morally ambiguous businessman (first seen in DC comics in 1987) who, in the comics at least, is a sometime ally/full time pain in the Justice League’s side. This latest preview of Supergirl showed the super hero decked out in her uniform with the clip letting viewers know that what they would be watching was never before seen video of the first season.

We also get a brief reference via a stray line of dialogue to the fact that, at least starting out, Superman and Supergirl are the only metahuman heroes the public is aware of. As the clip truly opens up, a truck can be seen driving into a camp military camp with the write up, “Department of Extra-Normal Operations” at the bottom of the screen. Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler, Sarah Schecter and Andrew Kreisberg are executive producers, while the pilot episode was directed by Glen Winter (Arrow, The Flash). Although the video starts at this military base, it shifts to a city in which viewers can hear police sirens and see a man with a shotgun in what appears to be a diner.

The movie was a spinoff of the Christopher Reeve Superman series, it featured Jimmy Olsen (played by Marc McClure) as a supporting character, and also took pains to establish that Superman was until Supergirl’s appearance the only superhero on earth.

Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. There is a clip of the heroine standing on a freeway surrounded by wreckage and rescue personnel, a man who is definitely not human and then once more Supergirl using her powers to put a stop to an attack. She works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott and famous photographer James Olsen, who Grant just hired away from the Daily Planet to serve as her new art director. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.
