Uh oh, Supergirl’s so fast, the pilot episode came to us just a tad too early. By “a tad”, we mean 6 whole months.
First spotted by The Verge, CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl TV series comes in 2 versions via various torrenting sites – full HD and another in lower resolution. Apparently, it came as a complete surprise to even the pirating community, according to TorrentFreak.
Produced by Warner Bros. TV and Berlanti Productions, “Supergirl” is an hour-long drama that centres on Superman’s cousin, Kara Zor-El, who arrives on Earth after escaping the destruction of Krypton. Just like her cousin, she was taken in by a foster family, the Danvers, who taught her to repress her superhuman abilities.
However, after many years of repressing her abilities, an unexpected disaster forces her to embrace her power to help the people in the city. At the age of 24, she becomes the hero she was meant to be: Supergirl.
As seen in the 6-minute trailer for the series released earlier this month, the pilot shows former “Glee” star Melissa Benoist as Superman’s cousin Kara Zor-El struggling to get to grips with both her newfound powers and the harrowing trial that is life in New York City. “Supergirl” also stars Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, and Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen.
CBS will air the first episode of the series in September, however, there is no word on when when it will reach Malaysian audiences.

As for the leaked “Supergirl” S01E01, well, we haven’t seen it ourselves but it’s reportedly free of any watermarks or warnings that might distinguish it as an advanced screening copy, leading some to speculate that the supposed leak is actually a marketing ploy by CBS to generate positive buzz.
Hmm, and the plot thickens!
