I decided to start basically a Supergirl season 6 thread.I was already figuring we may get some news at DC's FanDome event next month but apparently there was a Virtual Wizard World Con in the past few days and several cast members were there.Apparently there was some season 6 news there.TheDCTVshow has a report on it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eL_031LiXNw

The Major news points.

1)Jesse Rath revealed they plan to begin shooting September 28.

DCTVshow speculates that they might do what they did at the start of season 4 where other cast members like Jesse will begin shooting September 28 but Melissa might start a little later.

2)Helen Slater will be in a couple episodes in season 6.

The next bit I'll spoiler highlight since it could be considered a spoiler.

3)
Warning: Spoiler Alert! [Toggle message]
From Jesse Rath:"The writers are working on,not a Legion story but what I think is the essence of what The Legion Of Superheroes is."

DCTVShow speculates he's not expecting Legion members appearing but more the idea of what The Legion is.A team of superheroes coming together.So really Team Supergirl really coming together as a team and becoming the basis of what The Legion becomes in the future.


ETA

I think I found the actual panel video.

I still can't help to think they chose to release supporting cast posters because they may tweak the suits of the primary characters ( Supergirl, Flash). The Flash suit changes regularly. Supergirl held steady for 4 years, but may be getting a second makeover.

At least they haven't put out a similar poster for Batwoman featuring Ruby Rose. Now THAT would be in poor taste.

I have absolutely no problem with the pic they used. I love the pic. BUT, not making the first official poster of a show someone other than your #1, is poor promotion. Also, Supergirl should have been at the top of Dreamers poster, and Dreamer at the bottom.
I agree that it would’ve been better to release these posters in the opposite order or at the same time. The promotion department made a mistake. It’s a cold comfort but they made the exact same mistake with Flash so at least it’s not a Supergirl is being treated worse situation.

I like the poster, they put a picture of Melissa in front of a montage of comic book Supergirls. I do wish they would’ve added her motto as a tagline. They had no option about using an old picture and this one is a good choice. Someone on FB said that’s Nural Nal/Dream Girl behind Nia because Nia’s not in the comics. I don’t doubt that whoever came up with that tagline for Nia wanted to get it out ASAP. Things are not well at DC and I’m sure everyone in the promotions department is fighting for their jobs. There’s probably a lot of pressure to get something, anything out there. I thought the season four poster was fantastic and there have been others featuring the lead that I’ve liked.

Hopefully they do something really cool with Melissa once she’s available.

I'm not sure who that comicbook character is behind Dreamer on her poster, but it ain't Dreamer.

Also, I am once again awwed by the promo departments inability to actually promote Melissa Benoist as Supergirl. I just don't get, and have given up on trying to figure it out. SMH...

It's like someone thought of the line "She's Seen The Future" oOOOOOOOOOOOOH, LETS DO A POSTER ABOUT THAT RIGHT NOW.....AND WE GOTTA, WE GOTTA.....WE GOTTTTA PUT IT ON TWITTER RIIIIIIIIIGHT NOW....RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT NOW, WE CANNOT WAIT, IT IS JUST TOO GOOD OF A TAG LINE, WE CAN'T WAIT.

Wait, what is the show about? Oooooooooooooh yeah, Supergirl, well the fans are mad at us again so hurry up find one from last season (sighs) gotta keep them on that leash ya know.

I have nothing against Dreamer, she is a great character, Nicole Maines has done, and will continue to do a great job, but seriously.....just once how about we do a STROOOOOOONG PROMO PUSH using "Supergirl" Melissa Benoist as Kara Zorel aka Kara Danvers. Just once.....please, just asking for ONE TIME. Doesn't seem to be too much to ask. Well........maybe it is.

And pretty in part due to fan demand they’ve released a poster with Supergirl using a old picture of Melissa.


I'm totally alright with a poster using a pose from last season. At least helps keep us satiated until Melissa returns to the fold for production and new promos.

I'm not happy about the new Dreamer poster for Season 6. Why in the world would they release that as the first poster? It even makes it look like Dreamer is Supergirl with the Supergirl logo under it. Ugh. I don't mind Dreamer, but the show is supposed to be about Supergirl.

I think the new Dreamer poster is actually a quite clever play on her powers... She's seen the future, season 6 is coming... I like it.

I also think it's clever, but as the lead off promotional poster, I feel it is yet another case of diminishing Kara.

If it hadn't been an ongoing concern, I wouldn't mind as much. :)

What's interesting about the Dreamer poster and the one The Flash put out featuring Iris is that the backround shows the character's comic book counterpart.In Dreamer's case,it's actually her descendant from The Legion Of Superheroes who of course has been referenced on the show via Brainy and Winn.

I suspect there are numerous stock stills of Melissa that fans have not seen that with the comic backdrop and photo effects would look fresh and new. That is unless we are getting a new suit variation in S6.


I'd honestly be okay with this, lol. I don't hate a suit with pants, but something about the season 5 suit looked super frumpy, IMO.

To me, the problem is just too much blue and not enough color separation. To try and rectify that, I'd lower the S shield a bit lower, to where it was on the original costume. I'd then lower the neckline, to be about 2" above the top of the new S shield location, as the current neckline seems disproportionately wide and high. I also don't like how they have that weird piping extending from the seam of the arm over her shoulders, like odd looking pauldrons. I'd also add some sort of red wrap, around the waist, which is open in the front. By doing this, I feel they can use the shield to fill some of that empty blue canvas they've created with this costume.

Though, full honesty, I wish the Overgirl design from Earth X could be adapted to a Supergirl suit. She may have been evil, but that suit looked amazing.

It isn't Dreamer that upsets me--nor Iris. (And I think rather highly of Nichole and Candice as well.) Honestly, it's the lack of commitment to the title characters. At this point, it's downright painful; this just rubs salt in the wound.

If the reason was Melissa and Grant not being available for new shots, I'd rather they had done either nothing or a teaser with a logo--until they could do something with the leads.


This. Lack of focus on the leads is my primary focus on both series. I'd MUCH rather get re-used images of both Flash and Supergirl, or just banners, instead of throwing banners of other characters out as the ONLY new poster release.

If they had released a series of posters (even if they had to use reused images) so there were images of the leads AND other characters, I'm totally down for that. But right now, it's totally just salting the wound.

I feel the same way when they promote Batwoman season 1 when they are completely abandoning that character altogether.

In the absence of a resolution of the coronavirus threat, predictions that shooting will start on some date are to be taken perhaps *** grano salis. On the same line, one hopes that the lead actress is doing well.

Well, Melissa can’t pose for a new poster right now and fans tend to not like reused and photoshopped ones. With the lead unavailable who would you have preferred. Perhaps Chyler and David were unavailable. It could be that Nicole was just the most available but I know some think Dreamer is too powerful. BTW Grant didn’t do the poster they released for Flash, Candice did. They tend to want to show off new suits in these pre-season posters so that could be another reason for the leads not doing them and not reusing last years. Grant just hasn’t had the fittings.

I'm well aware of the Iris poster. They both exemplify my primary frustrations with these two shows.

Of course, they lead off with off all things...

I think I'm done, ladies and gentlemen.
