Since its inception first on CBS then over to the CW, we have seen Melissa Benoist as the titular character donning the classic Supergirl uniform on the shirt. We saw a variation in the CRISIS ON EARTH X crossover where as Overgirl it was still the same outfit just a different color scheme.
Well during a chat with director Kevin Smith at Twitch Prime’s Apex Legends Crown Cup, the SUPERGIRL star confirmed Kara Danvers will receive a new costume when she returns to the small screen this fall. And now we have our first look at the costume.
As you can see Supergirl’s new costume more directly resembles Superman’s in being the full-on suit with her in pants instead of the skirt. Now as Kevin Smith and Melissa Benoist in the interview, this design change didn’t come out of the blue. After all, even the most recent season of show poked some fun at the impracticality of fighting in a skirt when Red Daughter mocked Kara’s outfit during one of their confrontations.
Oh yeah, we have to take note to the bangs in the photo as well.
