Melissa really IS Supergirl :-)


Agree....I've checked out a lot of the articles on various mainstream comic, pop culture, and film sites. Aside from a few trolls, most I've seen are very complimentary. In this day and age, it's quite remarkable, especially from the fandom sites. Hopefully this translates into ratings and a long shelf life for the series.

I'm pleasantly surprised by the traditional nature of it, although I would have made it look a bit more like this if it was up to me -- comics always leaned on the too-short side for the skirt. But the fact that we have both a skirt and a cape is better than I feared.

Love it. Love it. Love it. So much better than I expected.

It's a 2015 version of Helen Slater's 1984 costume.

Wow.

Hard to tell in that lighting, but at least in that shot, it looks like there is no wig while in costume, as had been speculated in some places.

Yes, the article on The Mary Sue and the comments are all quiet positive. They all love it (and there were some rumblings before).

Possibly-but this outfit has the look of....

"Hi, i am an actress who on set wears a costume-but hey its lunchtime(or i am not needed on set for awhile)-if its takes 15 minutes or less i am going to put on an outfit thats perhaps more wearable.

The fact that she appears to be drinking coffee and eating donuts casually in said outfit suggests perhaps this isn't that outfits as the supergirl costume probabbly costs a pretty penny to make

I have seen this outfit before-its part of the magic of hollywood.

Why else would she be wearing thick framed glasses on the Supergirl set? Clearly, the photos are between shooting, but otherwise it makes sense.

four possibilities

1. your right-which is possible.

2. Realizing there's papparazzi, shes wearing glasses to throw people off-Happens.

3. This is part of her costume generally and shes trying to get use to them.

4. (And this is my favorite): Maybe she wears glasses. More actors then you think actually wear. I think i read that she had colored contacted lens-which are a pain such that you don't want to imediatly put in normal ones..So maybe Supergirl is secretly mild mannered....

melisabenoist.com has even more pics from the set. In some of them, Melissa isn't wearing eyeglasses.

Thanks, AJF! Add a dash after melissa to get the right site. Considering there are several shots of her running a microphone up through her shirt, that's a pretty good sign she's in character.

They surely would use a boom mic for dialogue, like other tv or movie dramas? I don't think radio mics, with their bulky battery packs and transmitters, are much preferred outside of on-screen presenters and interviewees. It is possible she's been wired up for some special effect, like bouncing bullets off her chest ... or (mundanely) she might just have been adjusting the headphones on her iphone before heading to lunch. ;)

you would never use a lapel mic on a pro shoot, overhead boom mics are the norm it's not the transmitter pack that's the issue it's the mic on the person that can be seen, as fire_red has said presenters and interviews are the only time they are used.

There are situations where you'd use lapel mics in a pro shoot. Not often, but they are used, particularly if there is a wider shot where a boom mic would not pick up. They have to well hidden, hence the wire being run through the clothes.

From my experience Lavalier mikes are used quite a bit. theres an art to hiding them.

There often used with booms to get multiple sources of sound on scenes.

(I like threads like this by the way) .
