Smallville's Super-girl Lois Lane Joining
The CW's Supergirl In Surprise Role
I saw this article last week on Deadline.com (link), and I thought it worth a mention on SciFiHistory.Net's Mainpage. Certainly, it's always an interesting development when folks from one incarnation of a superhero program jump aboard another one: the always lovely Erica Durance -- formerly known as Lois Lane aboard Smallville -- is taking over the role of Alura (aka Supergirl's Kryptonian mother) for the show. As it would appear, the lovely Laura Benanti has had to bow out due to commitments back in the States (for those unaware, production on The CW program shifted from the U.S. to Canada when the actioner switched from CBS).
It's hard to tell what developments this may mean for Supergirl's ongoing storylines, but let's hope it's all positive. While I wasn't thrilled with Season 2 in all respects, it's hard to argue that the showrunners didn't deliver a measure of excitement before all was said and done.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
