No more secret identity! That’s what Kara Zor-El, AKA Supergirl, seems to be saying in the voiceover of this new Season 3 Supergirl promo. From now on it’s Supergirl 24/7 — no more running around in fake glasses pretending to be weak and having to mysteriously disappear whenever alien invaders arrive. What’s the point, really?
Exactly why she feels like giving up her civilian life is unknown at this time…the promo doesn’t reveal why, and I sure hope it’s explained in the show itself (it’s a Berlanti production; you never know). We suspect this change will be only temporary, but while “Kara Danvers” is dead, it shouldn’t affect her relationships much — nearly everybody she knows is in on her secret, with the exception of Lena Luthor, and Lena’s about two seconds from figuring it out.
Supergirl will be kicking off The CW’s entire slate of superhero shows when it premieres Monday, October 9. The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow will follow with their own premieres throughout that week.
