Kevin Smith Shows Off Supergirl Set Video
Smith notes it's their last day shooting and offers a look at how they make Supergirl fly featuring Melissa Benoist in front of a green screen.
Kevin Smith is directing episode nine of this season with the title revealed to be "Supergirl Lives." It should be noted back in the '90s that Kevin Smith wrote the defunct "Superman Lives" movie which was set to star Nicholas Cage.
Also check out a batch of set pics.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8pm ET on The CW also starring David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, and Jeremy Jordan as Winn Schott.
I VOTED, in hopes of keeping this Kryptonian refugee from being deported. I also voted to legalize weed in #California. Whatever YOUR reasons are for voting today, just get out and vote! #KevinSmith #supergirlseason2 #supergirl #vote #election2016 UPDATE: Folks, Krypton is not a real place so there's no need to get upset with my very tame and lame bit of wordplay above.
Playing "Planet of the Capes" on @supergirlcw with the adorable @melissabenoist! I've loved her pitch-perfect portrayal of Kara and now I know why: Melissa gave her #Supergirl her own heart. She's such a crazy-talented, insanely gracious thespian who makes the very best of very long days. Supergirl gets all the hype but the real hero is #melissabenoist. Only 4 days of shooting left. The dailies look phenomenal. DP James Liston is killing it, as is every cast & crew member. We just finished two very long, very productive days on location so I'm looking forward to an easier day on stage, playing with the #CatCo sets. This job continues to be Heaven on Earth... #KevinSmith #supergirlseason2
This is what your face always looks like while working on @supergirlcw! I spent yesterday shooting with @melissabenoist & @chy_leigh as my favorite siblings on TV, the Danvers sisters. I love all the flying and punching of villains on #Supergirl... but I tune in for portrayals of sibling revelry so sincere and supportive that it really makes me feel like I missed out on something in life by not being a girl with a sister. As a huge fan of the show, seeing that dynamic on display both on & off camera yesterday was like drinking insanely good hot cocoa that warms your insides and fills you with joy. And on top of that? Yesterday was my first day shooting the Super suit! It is as glorious in real life as it looks on the show (and the cape is heavy - not just metaphorically speaking but also simply weight-wise). Me-Me and Chy-Chy brought the major feels when we were rolling but between takes they're both legit funny. It's cool watching them go from goofing around before "Action" is called to delivering dire dialogue about impending universal doom. Nice, nice kids. The whole damn crew is fulla nice, talented kids. We shot nearly eight pages yesterday but managed to wrap 40 minutes early. Tonight is Shoot Day 3 of 9- which includes watching the amazing FX and stunt folks on this show flip a speeding car! Up, up and away... #KevinSmith #melissabenoist #chylerleigh #nationalcity #vancouver #supergirlseason2
I just read this script for @thecwsupergirl episode I'm gonna direct and I LOVE IT!!! It is filled with deep-cuts characters from some of my favorite stories in the @dccomics canon and it reads bigger than anything I've ever directed before - even #Dogma! So naturally, I'm TERRIFIED. This material is way above my pay grade: the kind of stuff I've loved watching my whole life but never tried to make myself. It's pure comic book and science fiction fantasy and it reads like it should look like a 70's album cover. In a very First World way, this is scaring the shit out of me. So that's gotta be the best reason to do it, right? I should challenge myself and try to do something outside of my comfort zone. Plus, it's not like I'm gonna be alone: armed with a spectacular script, I'll be surrounded by the incredible cast & crew of one of my favorite shows - and they make magic every week. So what I lack in vision and ability I'll try to make up for with boundless fan-girl enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. Thank you @andrewkreisberg & @gberlanti for the misguided belief I can pull this off. I'll try to let you down gently. Up, up and away... #KevinSmith #Supergirl #supergirlseason2 #dccomics #cw
