2nd half of Season 2 was created by andyf
Mr Mzupletz is going to appear in two episodes first appearing in 2x13. Later in season 2, both Metallo and Livewire will appear again.

The trailer for 2x09, the Supergirl Lives episode looks like it contains scenes from other upcoming episodes.

One last thing, Melissa Benoist just filed for divorce from husband of less than two years, Blake Jenner.

Kevin Smith is directing Supergirl Lives (after having done a Flash last season, and this season). Both his Flash episodes were really well done, so I have hopes for his Supergirl episode. He seemed well received by the Flash crew as well. (Whatever you feel about Kevin Smith, he certainly seemed to do his job in those cases competently.)

Guess it's a good idea Blake's character didn't stay around as a love interest. With Cat's decreased role, he wasn't likely to come back. I hope the break-up is amicable and everyone moves on to happier lives.

Mxyzptlk can be tricky, but if when well done they can be fantastic stories. Not sure it should be TWO episodes unless there is some great trick to highlight character development. Maybe he shows up lurking around first, THEN has a real episode? But if he's prominent, a two-parter is better than two one-shots. He should not be over-used.

I kinda hope they don't do that. Mxyzptlk works best if hes the focus-hes a good, show up for one episide cause chaos then be forced back kinda antagonist.Frankly i think my favorite use of him was the Superman Animated Series which is like 6 or 7 Mxyzptlk stories in the course of 22 minutes, and while its played as a lampshade of silver age its still pretty great . Also Gilbert Godfried is the best choice ever for the part.

And i do think he could work well as a foe. As i said before, when the show does "punching and kicking "Villians it doesn't always go great. However when the show , and hes the ultimate example of not that. Hes a good example of characters you have to defeat by your wits-and this is a compliment-Kara isn't always a character whose wits are her strong suis. Shes smart, but not necessairly think on your feet smart. And that can work sometimes in a comedy epsiodes.

So i am looking forward to this.

I've been catching up with the first half of season two back at the family home over xmas. One thing I noticed was how similar in appearance the woman in charge of Project Cadmus is to Dr. Gretchen Kelly (played by Star Trek actress Denise Crosby) who, all to briefly, enjoyed a Super Power Transfer. The woman in charge of Cadmus now has Kara's blood sample. Perhaps another newly super strengthened female scientist is on the way?

Really looking forward to the episodes that Kevin Smith directs. He's a truly unique individual, in all kinds of good and bad ways, and he's fucking brilliant.

I think Melissa also has a lot of natural humor in her, and not the sophisticated kind.

Kevin and Melissa could probably knock these episodes completely out of the park if they let it all go. If so, like all the rest of his stuff, half the people will love them and half hate them.

But as I see it, we live in an entertainment world that is increasingly filled with homogenized, sanitized, badly done repeats of stuff that's been done before.

Kevin does NOT live in that world. His brain does not work like normal people's.

If you've never listened to Smith talk about writing Superman Lives, the movie that later became a TimBurton/nick cage movie and was never made ... you should. It's hilarious, and I think the episode of super girl is named in its honor. I wonder if there will be a giant spider?

I think this is it (mobile snd I can't listen)




I would like to see Lexi Alexandra back on a supergirl episode too.

That talk was GREAT. Classic Kevin. The man's mind is amazing in that he can tell a story like that in answer to a question at a comiccon or whatever. Total impromtu. Prick a hole and comedy just flows out of the man.

Interesting for him to say that dialog is the only thing he can write. That explains a lot.

Here's hoping he does the Supergirl Lives episode(s) in classic Kevin Smith form.

There's a trailer up on YouTube showing scenes form upcoming episodes. Shows Supergirl punching and superstrength. Plus, lots of Livewire!

Kevin Smith is also going to direct episode 2x17. Judging by his comments about getting to direct another episode this season, you get the impression he likes Supergirl more than he likes Flash. He's only directing 1 episode of Flash this year.

Maybe he likes to work with Melissa Benoist more than he likes working with Grant Gustin.

I hear that Gustin can be had to work with. I also have heard why he never does the convention circuit is because he asks for too much money

There is a sneak peek on sg.tv at Kevin's 'Supergirl Lives'. He's got our girl in quite a bit of a pickle....
