Melissa Benoist has officially put on her superhero cape! ‘Supergirl’ premieres Oct. 26, but you may know the actress from ‘Glee’ — and she has no problem mixing the two shows in this new interview.
Melissa Benoist is clearly a perfect match for Supergirl, but what about her costars on Fox’s Glee. It’s not only where she got her start, but also where she met her husband, Blake Jenner. So, which superhero role would she give to each of her costars? This, you’ll want to hear.
“I think Heather [Morris] would be some wacky Mother Earth-type hero. She would definitely be a hippie hero. Naya [Rivera] is like Catwoman,” the new lead of CBS’ Supergirl told Teen Vogue magazine. “I don’t know about Becca [Tobin]. She’s just so funny and there are many sides to her. She could be Harley Quinn, something sarcastic and dry and wild and hilarious. There’s one for Jacob [Artist], but I can’t think of it. He could be like… who dances? Like Hawkeye, maybe?”
Ok, well we’re pretty sure she just nailed all of those match-ups. Maybe that’s why she’s the perfect Supergirl! We know that she’ll definitely take on the role unlike we’ve ever seen, and it’s super empowering for women. Her costume in the show is actually less revealing than some wanted, and you’ll even see a bit of that in the premiere.
“She wants to make a difference and save people’s lives. I don’t understand how Wonder Woman does that without falling out of her bustier,” she told the mag. “This is very practical and sophisticated, and I like its modesty, too.”
