Supergirl Star Teases What’s Next For Kara And William’s “Slow Burn” Romance

Supergirl season 5 spent a bit of its time slowly building up a romance between Kara and William, culminating in him putting himself in mortal peril to try and save her in the finale.

It’s been quite low-key, which is something that star Melissa Benoist is really happy about. Looking forward, she hopes that season 6 of the superhero show doesn’t try to ramp it up too quickly. When your character is faster than a speeding bullet, you want to take your time with some things.

Speaking to the folks at TVLine, Benoist said: “What’s exciting for Kara is the amount of possibilities. She’s had quite a bit of time to herself without any love interests, so I think it’s great that there was a possibility at all in season 5.

“I would anticipate it even going into season 6, with complications arising, but I’m glad people are curious. What’s really fun on TV is watching slow burns with romance, so I think people can expect that.”

As well as more episodes of Supergirl, the show also has a spin-off on the horizon called Superman & Lois, focusing on Tyler Hoechlin’s version of the Man of Steel and Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane.

Melissa Benoist Explains Why Directing Supergirl’s Lex-Centric Hour Was ‘Daunting’

Supergirl

Supergirl definitely isn’t complaining about her latest team-up with Lex Luthor.

This Sunday, The CW’s Supergirl returns for the final run of season 5 with a Lex-centric episode that marks Melissa Benoist‘s long-awaited directorial debut. Benoist has been dying to get behind the camera since season 3, but wasn’t able to until now because of scheduling conflicts. Luckily, it seems like it was well-worth the wait because she got to helm an episode that diverges from the show’s usual structure and perspective, which she admits was initially quite daunting.

Cleverly titled “Deus Lex Machina,” the flashback-heavy hour essentially starts on day one of the post-“Crisis on Infinite Earths” world and sheds light on all of Lex’s (Jon Cryer) behind-the-scenes machinations we haven’t been aware of — from manipulating Eve Teschmacher (Andrea Brooks) and his sister Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath), to pitting Supergirl against Leviathan. In other words, it’s very similar to season 4’s “O Brother, Where Art Thou,” except this time around the criminal mastermind is trying his hardest to keep his Kryptonian hatred in check so that he can focus on defeating Leviathan.

Below, Benoist walks EW through her experience in the director’s chair, working with Cryer, and the challenges of handling such an exposition-heavy episode.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What jumped out at you from a directing perspective when you read the script for the first time? 

MELISSA BENOIST: Considering it was the first time in the director’s chair for me, I think I’d be remiss if I didn’t say how terrified I was. That just went without saying, that I was scared, but reading it also had this thrilling aspect to it because I was going to get to be the one to visualize it and make sure the tone was coming across. I guess only since season 4, we’ve had these episodes that were a departure from the story and took a step back and gave us Lex Luthor’s point of view, and this is one of those episodes. So, I couldn’t believe how lucky I was that I got to be the teller of that particular story for our season, where we recap the entire season from Lex Luthor, Jon Cryer’s eyes. And I was very excited to get to work with him closely in an actor-director relationship. Aside from the initial terror, and wondering whether or not I was capable of doing it, I was so excited and immediately just imagining what I wanted to do and thinking of shots.

Arrow: The Character Melissa Benoist Originally Auditioned For

Melissa Benoist may be the star of Supergirl, but she originally auditioned for a role in Arrow. An American actress and singer, Melissa Benoist rose to prominence when she successfully auditioned for Fox’s musical series Glee. She tried to join the Arrowverse by auditioning for a part in the CW’s new superhero show; however, she was passed over — allowing her to accept the role of Supergirl years later.

It’s hard to imagine Benoist in a different role; her quirky, whimsical character is perfectly suited for the Girl of Steel, and her profound sense of optimism transformed the scripts. She was actually the first actress to audition for the part of Supergirl, and that was no accident: Casting director David Rapaport had remembered her from another audition years ago, all the way back in 2012.

Mon-El Is Definitely Returning For Supergirl’s 100th Episode

It’s reunion time on Supergirl! The first photos from the 100th episode are in and it reveals some fan-favorite characters are definitely returning for the landmark episode, namely Chris Wood‘s Mon-El. The actor teased that he could return when TV Guide spoke to him earlier this month.

“I was in Vancouver during the hundredth episode,” Wood told TV Guide, when asked whether we should keep our eyes peeled for Mon-El. “And I went to the party. And that’s as much as I can say.” Well, now there are pics and we know that a return did happen.

TV Line has the exclusive first look of Mon-El back in his suit, and the site also confirmed that Odette Annable and Sam Witwer will return for the episode as Reign and Agent Liberty, respectively.

“The most exciting part — because we know we have a lot of people coming back — is just getting to work with cast members that I’ve not gotten a chance to interact with on set before,” Nicole Maines told TV Guide on the red carpet for Supergirl‘s 100th episode party. “Also, just getting to see everybody together was just really fun!”

While the trip down memory lane will be fun for fans, it’s going to force Kara (Melissa Benoist) to make a very difficult decision regarding her friendship with Lena (Katie McGrath). The episode synopsis reveals that Mxyzptlk (Thomas Lennon) returns to grant Kara a wish (his specialty) to go back in time and see how things would have turned out if she’d told Lena the truth about her identity before Lex could. Using this It’s a Wonderful Life-inspired story, the episode will look back over key moments throughout the series, leaving Kara with a pretty huge decision: Does she want to change history to save her relationship with Lena?

It looks like the two former BFFs will at least have one brief moment of happiness together, but it won’t last long if the episodic photos are to be believed. Kara embraces Lena in the photos, but Lena’s face says she’s not on the same page and hearts could be broken all over again.

TV Guide – Melissa Benoist Owned This Game From Who Said It: Supergirl Or A Disney Princess, Of Course! – Entertainment – Austin 360

While watching Supergirl, we often think that in the morning Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) little birds should let her do her hair like a real Disney princess, considering how sweet and sincere and extremely sweet she is. So it is clear that in a new round of Who Said It we wanted to prove that she is in fact a Disney character by challenging the cast to see who could see the difference between quotes from Supergirl and quotes from Disney Princess.

Poor Staz Nair, who plays William Dey, had a hard time keeping up, but Katie McGrath, who claimed to have very little Disney knowledge, actually got a pretty decent score. However, no one could compare to Melissa Benoist, Miss Kara Danvers herself, who ran away with a perfect score. Now there is a girl who knows her lines!

Everything we know about the crisis at Infinite Earths Arrowverse Crossover

Nicole Maines, who plays Nia Nal, also turned out to be a secret Disney expert! Not only was she able to identify which quotes were which, she even chose which specific Disney princess each line said. Grab it, girl! The highlight of the game was definitely the outbreak of Chyler Leigh and Melissa Benoist when recognizing the text in “Colors of the Wind”. We are not saying that we deliberately put those texts into it in the hope that this would happen, but we did it completely.

Supergirl is broadcast on The CW on 8 / 7c.
