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.

Real-world political and social issues have inspired Supergirl's last two seasons and that will remain the case in the forthcoming run, especially in the back half of season 6 as the show turns its attention to power. Following the destruction of the DEO last year, the Superfriends must figure out how to superhero responsibility now that they're operating without government oversight (you know, with great powers comes etc...).


Sacrifices of Supergirl or not...this WORRIES me. Although season 5 IMHO, except for one or two episodes, basically held the line on politics.

But now given the current scenario with the left in control (by hook and by crook and bolstered by a cowardly judiciary and big money elites selling out to China) this to me will be a victory lap for the show given the results they have gotten...then again Warners is one of the Hollywood studios financed by the People's Republic of China.

I still have that rancid, sour, bitter taste in my mouth over season 4 and their attack on conservatives, libertarians, old school liberals, talk radio and al-media (namely Infowars, Breitbart, Newsmax, One America News, etc.).

After 6 years of joy and eventually anger and disappointment, I am happy and sad to see this show go...

Sad...because it's the culmination of a dream of mine to have Supergirl on TV and have it turn out to be more successful than Wonder Woman with Lynda Carter or other female superhero TV shows, perhaps put together (Black Scorpion or Sheena ring any bells?).

Happy...because I won't have to suffer through the woke communist propaganda and politics when this show's final sign-off happens.

On the other hand...having be sans government oversight might give Team Kara and company more freedoms to handle crime and such...and I do not mean like The Crows on Batwoman who are making Gotham into a further police state.

(exhausted)

Now...given SG's going to be on Tuesday at 9, one can assume The Flash will lead in...which to me would've been my dream line-up. The two most hopeful superheroes on TV on a night when people might still have a slight case of the Mondays. And it would give a whole new meaning to Super Tuesday...not that Flash and Superman and Lois are doing that at the moment of course.

Yeah, I'm really curious what this "sacrifice" will be, and how it will impact Kara's sense of mortality, moving forward in the season.

Yeah,I'm sure it wouldn't be a literal adaptation of All Star Superman but more inspired by it.The broad strokes idea of stopping Lex putting a ticking clock on Supergirl's life forcing Kara and her family & friends having to deal and prepare for that.being the basis of the season.I just feel that it is so much like Oliver's storyline of his final season.The deal he made for his role in Crisis being that ticking clock with Arrow Season 8 being him dealing with it/putting his affairs in order/preparing for his eventual fate in Crisis and that end coming in Crisis.

IMO doing a take on All Star Superman for Supergirl's final season feels like Arrow's final season(without the benefit of crossovers due to COVID-19 restrictions.So no goodbye with Clark,Barry or Sara which I think should be a part of this sort of storyline especially regarding Clark & Barry.I would say Kate too but due the Batwoman situation,it would be out anyway.Unless it's off-screen like Black Lightning just recently did with The Flash which I would find un-satisfying in this circumstance) and I would really hate if the second of the Trinty met the same sort of fate as the first(Green Arrow,The Flash & Supergirl are the Arrowverse's Trinity).

I guess we'll start to have a idea soon.Hopfully the end of the series isn't Supergirl's "death." like Oliver or Clark's kind of death in All Star Superman.I guess maybe a twist could be to end the series with Kara being sent to the 31th Century and the Legion(Supergirl joining the Legion in the future has been done in various continuities in the comics and even the Justice League animated series I think) where there is a cure.It could be a way to bring Mon-El back for the end run of the series.Brainy could go with Kara.For some reason,I feel like Nia would stay in the present especially with a decendent in the Legion.It would also give a emotional end to the Danvers sisters story if Alex has to say goodbye to her sister(because I'm calling it now that Alex & Kelly are going to adopt a child this season so if Kara has to go to the future,Alex would stay in the present with Kelly and their child).Plus it would leave the door open for any future guest appearances on other Arrowverse shows down the line if Melissa is open.

I'm probably waaaaay wrong about all this though.lol

Interesting theory. I could see parts of it being true. I could see them going a different direction with it. I could see Kara finding some similar way to overcharge her powers, for the purpose of overcoming Lex...they already established she can't fly in space, so I don't see them sending her to the sun.

If she does find a way to overcharge on solar radiation, I could see her contracting the same illness as Overgirl...giving her a finite amount of of time to live. I could see her using her powers as a way of exacerbating the condition. Both Kara and Alex saw what happened to Overgirl, and it would put a looming threat over Kara's head.

I have some speculation based off the synopisis for the first two episodes of the season and the EW.com interview with the producers..First I'm going to bring over the relevant parts and then my theory/speculation based off them.

From the episode 1 synopsis.

but Supergirl realizes that the only way to truly stop Lex is to sacrifice herself.


From the episode 2 synopsis.

Meanwhile, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the team are faced with a challenge unlike anything they’ve ever dealt with before and it brings Alex (Chyler Leigh) to her breaking point.


From the EW.com interview.

Unfortunately, what Kara does to defeat the megalomanic will have major repercussions on her in the first half of the season — all of which is in service of setting up the Girl of Steel's final journey.

"She is going to really sacrifice her life and put her life on the line to save her friends and humanity," co-showrunner Jessica Queller tells EW. "That challenge, she's going to face her mortality in a way we've never done on the show. That's really the focus of the first run of seven episodes. It's life or death stakes for Kara, and it's very introspective. So, all of the soul searching and taking stock of the past six years will happen in the beginning, and then she'll put it all into play in the second half."


I'm wondering now if Supergirl season 6 could be doing a take on All Star Superman?

For those who are unfamillar,All Star Superman was a 2005-2008 twelve issue limited series by writer Grant Morrison & artist Frank Quitely.It's considered one of the great defining Superman stories and we've seen Supergirl use storylines and elements from Superman before.

It's basically a Death Of Superman story.The gist of the story is that Lex Luthor orchestrates a situation where to save everyone,Superman is forced to absorb a high level of solar radiation.The result is that while it causes him to be even more powerful,it's also slowly killing him.So the setup is that Superman only has one year to live(he keeps this from the public) and the series follows him over that year putting his affairs in order.The comic was adapated into a animated movie a few years ago.

Here's the wiki summary of the series.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All-Star_Superman

Dr. Leo Quintum and his team from P.R.O.J.E.C.T. are exploring the Sun when they are remotely sabotaged by Lex Luthor. Superman rescues them, and acquires the ability to project his bio-electric aura. Luthor orchestrated this event to overwhelm Superman's cells with massive amounts of solar radiation; Quintum determines that Superman's new level of power is also killing him, and that he has one year left to live. Luthor is arrested, thanks to a Daily Planet article by Clark Kent. Superman decides to keep his impending death secret from the public.

However, Superman reveals his secret identity to Lois Lane, because he wants to spend his remaining time with her. Lois initially refuses to believe that Clark and Superman are the same person. For her birthday, Superman takes Lois to the Fortress of Solitude, where they have dinner in a stateroom of the RMS Titanic, which Superman has raised and restored. During this visit, he also tells Lois that she can explore the Fortress save for one room he is constantly checking. Superman's furtive behavior heightens Lois' suspicions and she becomes paranoid. She attacks Superman with a Kryptonite laser, but his enhanced powers have rendered him immune to it.

Superman calms her down and reveals that he was preparing her birthday present in the off-limits room: a liquefied form of his DNA that will grant her all his superpowers for 24 hours, as well as a leotard for her costume. Using the name "Superwoman", she joins Superman as he stops a monster attack in Metropolis involving Samson, Atlas and an Ultra-Sphinx. Superman drives Samson and Altas away and he and Lois spend an eventful day that ends with them kissing on the moon before her powers fade and she falls asleep. Superman flies her back home.

Luthor is convicted of crimes against humanity and sentenced to death. Clark meets with Luthor for an interview at Stryker's Island. Luthor discloses his respect for Clark as a journalist and states that he has no desire to escape as long as he defeats Superman by causing his death. He reveals to Clark that Superman is dying, hoping that it will be published in the Daily Planet.

Nearing death, Superman accomplishes a variety of tasks that significantly help both humans and Kryptonians, and completes his last will and testament. Meanwhile, Luthor survives his execution as he took a serum similar to what Superman made for Lois and escapes. Superman then learns of Luthor's ally Solaris, who has tampered with the sun. Superman engages Solaris until a Sun-Eater that Superman had cared for in the Fortress and subsequently released returns to weaken it. After Solaris destroys the Sun-Eater, Superman defeats Solaris, leaving its body intact because he has learned from the Superman Squad that Solaris will become an ally in the future. Clark returns to the Daily Planet to submit his article but falls dead. As the staff tries to save him, Luthor arrives and attacks Metropolis.

Believing he is on his home planet of Krypton, Superman joins his Kryptonian father Jor-El, who reveals that Superman's body is converting itself to a solar radio-consciousness. He offers him a choice; remain or come back to life. Clark wakes up, and confronts Luthor, firing a gravity gun at him. The gravity gun warps time for Luthor, speeding up the exhaustion of his powers. As his powers fade, Luthor briefly sees the world as Superman sees it, and weeps before Superman knocks him out. Superman and Lois embrace and he proclaims his love for her once and for all. He takes off, flies into the Sun and repairs it, saving the day for one last time. One year later, Lois tells Jimmy that she still believes Superman will return. Inside the sun, Superman, now a solar being, maintains machinery to keep the sun alive. The story concludes with Quintum revealing that if something happens, they will be ready, standing before a door with Superman's characteristic shield, but with its usual "S" replaced with the number "2".

Kal-El himself would one day emerge from his seclusion: he was seen once from countless thousands of years in the future, having evolved into a sort of golden god, meeting with his past self shortly after the death of Jonathan Kent and his masquerade as the Unknown Superman, and shortly before his own "death". The future Superman presented his dying past self with an indestructible golden flower from New Krypton, "For him, from all of us. In remembrance of all that we are. And all that we will be". The flower was planted at Jonathan Kent's grave.


I'm really wondering now based on the synopsis for episodes 1-2 and what the producers say in that interview if they are doing a take on All Star Superman.I'm very mixed on it if they are.On the one hand,it's one of the great Superman stories.On the other hand,it feels too much like Oliver''s end.And after Season 8(which was about Oliver preparing for his end in Crisis much like All Star Superman is Clark preparing for his own death) and the death of Green Arrow,I really don't want Kara to have the same sort of ending.Granted All Star Superman doesn't end with Superman's "death" but transforms him into a solar being powering our sun.IMO it feels the same as death even if there is a sense of hope.I guess I just don't really want that sort of ending for Kara.But I may be wrong about my speculation.W'll start to find out in less then two weeks.

I watched Riverdale and Nancy Drew last night. I was hoping a Supergirl promo would pop up, but I was left disappointed.

Flash dropped to a new demo low (.2) this week, which is what most CW shows do, but low for Flash. I was hoping Supergirl season 6 would benefit from a stronger lead in, but that's about what Batwoman season 1 did on Sunday. I am hopeful the new Flash arc is better than the dreadful Mirrowverse arc and viewers return.

I hope Supergirl gets some season 6 promo love on the linear CW soon. They are already airing promising for Kung Fu.

Season 6 poster...

I thought it was odd she had bangs in the poster considering other pictures suggested the bangs grew out.


Agreed. Just feels like they used leftover stock photos from last year.

I didn't add this to the news because I think it's only going to be relevant for one episode. Kara doesn't have bangs anymore from what we saw

I guess it makes these two episodes a little bit more interesting but it still Melissa less. When you have your Mickey Mantle out of the lineup for two games the excitement level drops way down. And unlike the young Kara and Alex this young actress looks nothing like our Cat Grant. Who knows maybe she sounds like her.

@comic fan So do I.What they describe feels a little like how Perry White was introduced on Smallville in season 3.


I can see them doing a wink to Smallville and the Perry White episode.
