‘Supergirl’ Pilot Leaks Online: High Quality Download Available For Debut Episode.

High-quality copies of the pilot for CBS drama “Supergirl” — which isn’t set to air on the Eye until November — apparently leaked onto file-sharing pirate sites early Friday.My editor suggested, if I was having trouble coming up with ideas about what to write, that I note that the new CBS prime-time show, Supergirl, will air at eight o’clock Eastern time on Mondays when it starts this fall… up against Gotham on Fox.Considering how well DC’s recent TV series such as The Flash and Arrow have been doing, we’re sure many are excited to see what the upcoming Supergirl TV series will bring to the table. The assumption, when he mentioned this to me last week, was that Supergirl would have trouble against the adventures of Bruce Wayne as a boy, since the Batman character has a known success across several media for more than fifty years.

Now if you’re just as curious as everyone else, it seems that you can sate your curiosity today because according to reports, the pilot of the show has leaked onto torrent websites. Kara Zor-El, on the other hand, starred in one lousy movie and guested on a season of Smallville. “Well,” you say (you being my rhetorical projection), “that’s really irrelevant, because movies are different from television.” This is true.

Yes, you read that right, the pilot which was originally scheduled for a release in November 2015 has been leaked a good six months ahead of schedule. ET, the “Supergirl” pilot had been downloaded more than 120,000 times worldwide, per Excipio. “Supergirl” is slated to anchor CBS’s lineup on Monday nights for the 2015-16 season.

As you can see in the screenshot of the download in the image above, the copy appears to be rather clean as opposed to a recording of a recording, suggesting that this is indeed a legit leak. Actress Melissa Benoist, who portrays Supergirl in the series, recently spoke to Variety about what fans should expect to see from the character in CBS’ new show. “She’s a strong female and a female hero which I think is so important and will speak to so many people at this time right now in the world,” Benoist told Variety. “I also was so drawn to her humanity, even though she is an extraterrestrial with powers. Oddly enough there are no “property of” warnings although it is possible that hidden watermarks could be embedded throughout the video to identify it. I have enjoyed almost every incarnation of the character, including the one who had a flying horse that would turn into a cute guy when the occasion required.

This new television version seems to owe a bit too much to The Devil Wears Prada, at least in the trailer, but it is my hope that, as the writers get comfortable with the material they’ll find a more unique take on the characters. They should also stop being self-conscious about the character being named “Supergirl.” Yes, it’s kind of anachronistic, so I guess they have to address it. So if you perceive ‘Supergirl’ as anything less than excellent, isn’t the real problem you?’” Let’s face it. “Supergirl” has the same number of syllables as “Superman.” It scans a little bit better. There are non-feminist women who think this isn’t a problem, but I can only presume they have rich husbands or fathers, or they’re being paid by rich men to defend the status quo.

Here you can write a commentary on the recording "Supergirl Pilot Leaks Online—Which Nefarious Villian Is Behind This?!".
