Speaking of curious, TV Line was able to ask a couple of liberating questions from the cast members including Brooks' opinion on criticisms about him playing a "white" character.

"That shadow is something we all face in life, whether it's our boss or our brother, or our cousin," executive producer Ali Adler told iO9.com. "Or our cousin who flies over Metropolis."

He added that even the most successful people have someone who stays ahead of them in some way.

The website inquired about how the show would handle the looming question of "Why her" which the producer answered with a promise that "over the course of the season and the series, that question will matter less."

Furthermore, tickling the audience's curiosity further by giving clues about Supergirl's powers by saying that she has all Superman has plus a couple of more.

Adler also vowed that the show would deliver impressive special effects, amazing sets, and a comedic atmosphere that still rings of the Man of Steel's legacy.

"The Donner films, when I was a kid, set such a standard," co-producer Greg Berlanti stated, adding that what they did with Supergirl was something "more at that level."
