I assumed the in-between choice was deliberate. Inasmuch as they were going to forego the brunette wig disguise, an intermediate blonde was a compromise between Supergirl’s vibrant blonde/yellow (from the comics) and a more average/commonplace hair color for Kara. As implausible as the current disguise is, it might have been even more implausible with both Supergirl and Kara as conspicuous “bombshell” blondes.

She's beautiful.
Honestly, I think this lighter shade works best for Melissa. She's truly stunning.

The lighter color looks great on Melissa no doubt. I do think having her hair several shades darker underneath so it looked darker when it was up versus down was part of the "disguise". I'll be interested to see how this works, I trust Melissa's choices for the character.

I actually like the natural brunette a lot.

Which, given the previous responses, makes me glad that this forum doesn't have a "dislike" button or downvote option

The lighter color works great for Supergirl, though.

Just as long as Melissa doesn't do a Kaley Cuoco I'm gold.

I feel they need to play this piece now that she's gone this shade.

You know if I didn't know any better, I would think with part of her hair covering her left eye, one can be reminded of the 40's movie beauty Veronica Lake.

I thought of that before. That's also the same hairstyle as Jessica Rabbit and Viper/ Madam Hydra with the peekaboo eye.

I'm reminded of just how lucky we are to have so many comic characters, DC and Marvel, who are just embodied by such great actors and actresses.

Melissa Benoist is like a golden star, amid a sky filled with such greatly portrayed heroes.

I think if we got this as our very first image of who was playing Supergirl, there would've been no doubters at all. That image of her would've completely embodied the character from the get go.

These were the first pics posted in part 1 of this thread a couple of years ago:







Look at how in this new pic she has much more natural make up with very soft lips compared to the much more garish red lips in the pics above, especially the first two pics. That first pic was the first I had ever seen of Melissa, and she gave off a completely different vibe to how she actually is on film, or how she looks in this latest photo.

She is the closest in personality and character to her super hero alter ego since Chris Reeve. She has nailed his goofiness down as shown in the scene with Barry Allen in the first cross-over, where is is saying "I don't know how to tell you this, of course I know how to tell you this" when James snaps at her. It was well directed and superbly played, shades of Chris back in the day. Has it really been 40 years since I saw him play Superman in the theatre?

If you go to the SDCC thread and watch the Kreisberg interview from 2015, he talks about that....in the first couple of minutes.

Do you have a link to the video? I cannot find that video. I searched youtube but in the ones of Kreisberg up there he does not address that point.

And Kelly you beat me to the punch. This is from Chyler's Instagram where she posted...

Quote:
Day 1 of #Supergirl Season 3 with @melissabenoist ???? I am so grateful the first one was spent together. I love you Sis... missed you bunches #danverssisters #sistersunite
To be honest, these two were not resting on their laurels.

Melissa was in New Mexico filming "Waco" for the new Paramount Network (a/k/a Spike)...and Chyler and her husband Nathan traveled around the world with their East of Eli band.

But I wish we could see more of those two in relationship action. With Floriana Lima being reduced in cast status and Chris Wood now not coming back I heard (RUMORS MIND YOU!) until episode 6, it's high time the slackers called the writers got back to what made season 1 work...THE SISTERLY BOND.

All that said....AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! Look at our daughters, gang! Aren't they so cute?

I think it would be good to touch base with what was S1's better relationship dynamics. And include J'onn in there! We've had far too little of Daddy J'onn and far too much Cyber-pooper.

I have no problem with them expanding their relationships, like Mon'El, Maggie and M'Gan and Lyla, but let's not lose touch with the heart of the show..

S1 gave us their dynamic together.... S2 gave us their own lives separate to each other... hopefully S3 can find the middle ground.

She looks great in the white dress. Can't tell if her hair looks lighter here. I do wish she'd take a pic in a field of wheat or flowers though.
