Video: 6 minute first look at Supergirl

CBS haven’t given us a trailer for their upcoming Supergirl series, they’ve given us a whopping 6-minute first look.
Supergirl, a new drama from the DC Comics universe, follows the adventures of Superman’s cousin Kara Zor-El as she goes from humble PA to the hero she was always meant to be.

On first watch it comes across as less of a superhero drama and more a quirky rom-com with a scattering of superhero stuff thrown in.

However the flashes of Supergirl’s powers we do get to see look promising (the bit when she bodyblocks an oncoming truck is impressive), and we have feeling that star Melissa Benoist is going to be great.
And those who have seen Man Of Steel should listen out for a line you might recognise…
Supergirl is scheduled to air in the US in the autumn.
