I'm certainly crossing my fingers for a new intro. I was happy we got a new one in the S2 premiere, but then they went right back to the old one (just with new shots including Superman) immediately after that ep, lol.

I'll be honest, I kinda hate all the Berlanti show voice-over intros. They're all pretty cringey to me.

I think it is about time to get rid of the intro all together. Made sense in S1 since it was brand new, made sense in S2 since it was rebranded for CW but now it's time to move on from it sans premieres and short episodes.

I agree with this about 1000%.

Well, the awkward delivery of an over-explained intro - punctuated with “I am [insert hero name]!” - seems to be a Berlanti/DC trademark. (I’m expecting one for Black Lightning.) So I’d be shocked if the intro narration was ditched altogether for Supergirl.

Well instead of a voice-over intro, they should bring back theme music and opening credits to a TV series. I preferred them back in the day (and some shows still do that) and it made the TV theme much more iconic. Supergirl has a great theme too but we don't get to hear it enough. Just have that theme playing with images from her leaving Krypton and other various adventures.

Outside of the “Midvale” episode, are we going to see a bigger focus on the Danvers sisters this season on Supergirl? — Cheyenne
When I pressed EP Andrew Kreisberg on whether more of the Supergirl characters would get to take part in the upcoming four-way crossover event, he dropped quite a tease. “Kara and Alex are at the center of it through all four hours,” Kreisberg says. “One of the things we’ve been doing a lot this season is getting back to season 1 and really making it Danvers sisters-centric, so a lot of what’s going on this season is Kara and Alex doing things in tandem, and the crossover won’t be any different.”

This crossover's already sounding much better than last year's. It'll be fun to finally see Chyler get to interact with the other casts.

I can imagine that if Alex and Maggie broke up that Alex would pursue Sara instead.

Well Sara most certainly will. I was honestly surprised she didn't flirt with Kara in the first one, lol. Whether or not Alex reciprocates will probably depend on her relationship status with Maggie at that stage. She seems more likely to be flustered by it than anything.

Oh yah if Sara doesn't flirt with Alex I'll be very disappointed. Alex's reaction is of course to be determined. Even if it goes no further than harmless flirtation Alex may be surprised at her own reaction. How cool would it be to have a sparring turned flirting scene with Alex and Sara. As fighters they are both badass and I honesty have no idea who would win.

I really do hope that the show does go back to its roots and places more emphasis on the sisterly bond between Kara and Alex.

Scenes like this (from last season) really shows why their relationship is undoubtedly the heart of the show.



Granted, I haven't fully gotten over my issues with how they treated Superman last season, but if they could avoid using him from now on and focused more on Kara's relationship with her sister Alex, as opposed to the numerous romantic pairings on this show, then I might just come back to watch the entire season again.

Personally, I hope that they don't add Alex to Sara's list of numerous women that she's made out with.

Well that, and I hope that they don't make this into a running gag for the entire crossover.

I like the sound of more of Kara and Chyler Danvers as the focus of the series.

hopefully with the new recast younger Kara, they make her hair BLONDE in the flashbacks.

that always bugged me about the original younger Kara - her hair tone was too much of a brunette.

I could see them putting in blond highlights and that would be fine.

They made Allura and Zor-El into brunettes so it's a little weird that Kara would seemingly become a bottle blonde. Funnyingly enough...they did the complete opposite with Lara & Jor-El on Smallville.

Oh for Rao’s sake here we go with the hair color debate again. I am going to attempt to end the hair color debate once and for all. Hair is not the same as skin or other organs it’s an organized unit of tissue with living and non-living components. Even a Kryptonians hair isn’t as strong as the rest of their body. In S2E3 “welcome to earth” Kara talked about getting a blowout. That implies that the heat and air velocity of a blow-dryer along with a brush are able to style her hair. Taking that a step further let’s assume in this continuity Kara and Clark can to get haircuts almost like humans. The stylist or barber has a dull pair of scissors that need sharpening after cutting their hair but it can be cut. Given that let’s assume in this continuity that GASP Kara Zor-El is not a natural blond. When she first came to Earth her hair was light brown as seen is season one flashbacks and it got darker as she got older as we will see in season three young Kara. Some time in her late teens or very early twenties because she wanted to she started getting blond highlights. The amount of bleach necessary to give Kara the lovely highlights we see on Melissa may be enough to completely strip the color from a human’s hair but it does work. Now can we please stop with the hair color debate?

nope.

this is a fictional character we are talking about. Whoever created her gave her a specific hair color, and she has been consistently portrayed with that hair color throughout the years, across various media.

now, the actual tone/shade of said hair color can vary. but Kara is and should be a blonde - a natural blonde.

she is not a brunette who dyed her hair blonde or got blonde highlights. Kara Zor-El is blonde.

just like Clark Kent is a brunette/dark hair. he is not a natural blonde who dyes his hair black or whose hair gets darker as he grows up in the Sun.

if you are going to adapt these characters, try to get their key physical traits right.

and yes, I am aware Barry Allen is a brunette on his show when he's supposed to be blonde in the comics. and yes, that bugs me on some level, too.

I'm sorry. I'm one of those people who are sticklers for details.
