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.

Am I correct that Melissa and John are negative with the covid? If so then why are they wearing those freaking masks. It would have been better received with hope if they were mask less.

They may be negative, but they take measures to ensure that they STAY negative.

Those masks are standard for the film industry, right now. All cast and crew wear masks at all times. And anybody working in close proximity to one another also wear face shields.

Only the actors get to take their masks off, and that is only when they are filming takes.

They take these safety measures very seriously in Vancouver. If even one cast member or crew member tests positive, then the entire production shuts down for at least 2 weeks.

I am fully vaccinated and I still have to wear a mask. If that is the protocol doesn't matter if you are negative, fully vaccinated, positive for antibodies.....masks for all. ?

I wonder how much of the premiere will feature Kara as they started filming before Melissa’s return. They could focus on Lex and Lillian plans, Brainy's illness or Gamemnae's/ "Gemma's" transformation and revenge. I wonder if we meet her "boss" and if there is a tie in to The Annointed One and/or Atlantis.

Great news about the premiere.So it premieres at the end of the month.So March 30 to May 11,we have Supergirl.Assuming there is no brraks,that's seven episodes,than on May 18 Superman & Lois returns for the rest of it's season(15 episodes are the total for season 1).Then Supergirl returns in the summer for the rest of its season.I still think Supergirl will than be paired with Stargirl.

Since the premiere is now only a couple weeks away,we may get a promo soon.

Canadagraphs has a bunch more photos at his blog.

Photos and video are dropping a bit more frequently. Hopefully it means we are getting closer to promo images, and them revealing a premiere date.

The Fortress of Solitude seen on the second episode of Superman & Lois seems to have received a post-Crisis makeover. It's different from what we have seen on Supergirl. I wonder if Kara will visit it before the show exits?

The pod that brought Kal-El to Earth got a new post-Crisis look--and change in storage location. Never made a lot of sense keeping such advanced tech so open to the public. Almost begging for an evil mastermind or alien with a grudge to steal it.

I'm relatively sure we've seen the Fortress on Supergirl, Post Crisis. I think they just wanted to give the Superman & Lois team cart blanche to adjust things as needed to fit their specific show. Crisis can explain away a lot of that, but not all of it.
I’m relatively sure we haven’t seen the Fortress post CoIE. We saw it in episodes seven and eight, CoIE was episode nine. I’m looking an my Blu-Ray here. Episode 10 was “The Bottle Episode” I don’t remember it in that one. Episodes 11 and 12 were the ones with Winn and I don’t recall the Fortress in those. Episode 13 was the 100th and I know the Fortress wasn’t in that one. Episode 14 was the “The Bodyguard” where Kara had to be Andrea’s bodyguard, no Fortress there. Episode was the Dreamer centric “Reality Bytes” episode 16 was “Alex in Wonderland” definitely no Fortress in either of those. I simply don’t recall the Fortress in the last three episodes. Arrowverse Wiki backs me up saying the Fortress last appeared in “The Rath of Rama Khan” which was S5E8.

It would be a waste of money to have different Fortress sets. Changing the existing one would’ve cost less than building a new one. TBH I’ll be kinda pissed if they went through the expense of building a new/changing the existing Fortress set and not letting Supergirl use it if necessary.


Supergirl & Lena had a scene in the Fortress in episode 5x17, Deux Lex Machina. Just double checked.

Speaking realistically, they can't share a Fortress set. The Fortress set we are used to is on the Supergirl sound stage. Due to COVID restrictions, these actors aren't allowed to be working on each other's sets, this season.

Yes, both sets are supplemented by green screen and CGI backgrounds, but there is still a base set with practical pieces on the Supergirl set.

We could, in theory, justify it as the Fortress being very large and having multiple chambers and areas.

You know what, I had the same thought. Melissa and Kara looked cute. The Supergirl hairdo in season 5 is what killed the aesthetic for me. And I do agree that changing both the suit and the hair at the same time turned people off. People hating on her, as a person, is not warranted.

I do still think they could have created a more aesthetically pleasing suit with pants. Overgirl's suit looked...amazing. But that's a personal preference.

Really looking forward to seeing what season 6 will bring.

I think the fans were more POed with the pants replacing the skirt then her hairdo. I was wondering if the movie Supergirl wears a skirt or a pants thingy.

Season 5 suit, season 1-4 hair. I will absolutely take that compromise.

Henseforth, season 5 shall be known as THE BANGS YEAR!
:p Bangs year LOL. Personally as Kara and of course Melissa I thought the bangs were cute but on Supergirl not so much. IMO some of the hate on the pants suit was because the combined effect of the change in suit and hair was disconcerting. It wasn’t acceptable to hate on Melissa’s personal choice so it got directed at the suit.
