By on

Supergirl, the upcoming TV show from CW, will include Superman– the?character however will only be fitting a mentor-role in the series. More reveals such as DC characters including Lucy Lane (Superwoman) and Red Tornado; and weaknesses aside from kryptonite were revealed for the Season 1 release this October.

Superman in Supergirl Series

Superman will not be seen swooping-in with his cape as the character will only be playing a mentor-role.

?He will be a factor in her life, but you won?t see him exactly on screen, EW reported.? DC Entertainment Chief Geoff Jhons said. ?He?s going to be more in the background. But he does play a part in her evolution into a superhero,? he said as Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) will be arriving two decades when Superman came into the city.

Viewers however won?t be able to see the famous DC hero on tv, Hitfix reported. ?You won?t exactly see him on screen,? Geoff said.

Lucy Lane as Superwoman

Lucy Lane is the younger sister of Lois Lane, the reporter who hooks-up with Superman. Lucy will be included in the new TV series which may mean that she may appear sometime in the show as the iconic Superwoman. In the comics, Lucy was able to get her powers after wearing a mysterious suit, DC Comics reported.

Arrow and Flash Crossover

CW is on a roll with their success with Flash and Arrow, and both characters will also appear in the upcoming DC Legends of Tomorrow. If your expecting to see the Supergirl series to merge with the franchise, you?ll be disappointed as the heroine will only tandem with them via promos, Bleeding Cool reported.

?We have not had conversations about crossovers,? CBS Entertainment Head Nina Tassler said.

More DC Characters

More DC characters, just like in Arrow and The Flash, will be included in this latest movie by CW, Variety reported. Exec Andrew Kreisberg said during the Television Critics Association Panel that characters from the comics will include Red Tornado, General Sam Lane, and Lucy Lane?s father. General Zod was also said to be included, but the tweet may have been mistaken for Gen. Sam Lane.

Supergirl?s Weakness

Superman is well known to be susceptible when exposed to Kryptonite. This latest show will also employ the same thing to introduce a weakness to the character, but Digital Spy?reported that?there will be more things to put her at risk.

?There are plenty of things besides Kryptonite that can take her down. It?s not to diminish her, it?s to make it feel like there?s actual jeopardy to the show,? the Kreisberg said.

Why Is She Named Supergirl, Not Superwoman?

Kara Zor-El aka Supergirl and Superwoman are two different characters, Time reported.? ?She?s Supergirl because she?s Supergirl,? Executive Producer Ali Adler said.

Supergirl is the cousin of Superman. Like Superman, she will also be adopted by a human family (Helen Slater and Dean Cain as foster parents).

Supergirl to Appear in DC Movies?

The cinematic universe of DC is completely separate from the TV universe, Hitfix reported. This may mean that the storylines and characters do not intersect with one another, hence, we may not see a Supergirl to appear in theaters anytime soon.
