The complete pilot episode of the "Supergirl" TV series leaked online on Friday, with two 'Scene' release groups - LOL and DIMENSION releasing a 400mb file and a 6gb (1080p) file respectively.
There's quite a bit of speculation as to how and why the full pilot episode was allowed to be released online six months ahead of its official CBS premiere in November.
The leaked pilot, which runs for 46 minutes, does not contain any network identifiers or watermarks (that can be seen), or any of the usual "property of" warnings that accompany "screener" copies the network may have handed out to reviewers or employees.
SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman's (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents' help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret.
Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (Golden Globe Award winner Calista Flockhart), who just hired the Daily Planet's former photographer, James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), as her new art director. However, Kara's days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.
Greg Berlanti ("The Flash," "Arrow"), Ali Adler, Sarah Schecter and Andrew Kreisberg are executive producers for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The pilot was directed by Glen Winter ("Arrow").
Pak: Absolutely. There is a whole new look, a whole new power-set or power levels, and a whole new status quo. The world was changed and Clark is going to have to deal in a big way. Everything has changed so it's a huge challenge for Clark and all of the supporting cast and it's going to be a huge amount of fun to explore.
Aaron, what about his look? Superman lost his costume in the Sneak Peak DC recently released. And I sound like a fashionista, but what will Superman be wearing this summer?
Kuder: [Laughs] On the Internet, if you get a 50 percent positive and a 50 percent negative reaction to something, you count that as a success, and I think that's what we've got with the new look -- but I think the problem is that people are calling it a new costume. And really, it's just a t-shirt and jeans. It's not a new costume. The new look came from the story. I realized that there was a whole bunch of new looks that came out at exactly the same time, but no one came to us and said that Superman needed a new look. No one said that we needed to jazz him up or change him in any way. What happened is that we fleshed out the story and more and more it became obvious that the path that Clark is going down needed it's own design, and now he's in his comfy clothes.
Pak: [Laughs] In "Action Comics" #41, you're going to find out where that t-shirt comes from.
Kuder: And you also find out in the Sneak Peek preview where the old look goes.
Pak: But like Aaron said, there is an emotional point and a story point to all of this. It was a blast developing the storyline at the last Superman summit and while we were all talking, Aaron was drawing, so all of these story beats and all of these emotional beats of this journey that this character is going on came to life right there while Aaron was sketching it out at the summit. It was all very organic and when you read the story, we hope that resonates with you.

Add that to seeing herself on the small screen after all the special effects have been added in to Supergirl and Benoist can't believe what she's already been able to do on the show, which will premiere in the fall.
a"I don't recognize myself when I see those scenes," Benoist says. "It's kind of insane. The sheer scope of all of it, it's so epic that it's kind of mind-blowing to see it all put together."

The 10 million figure eclipses the total views of all the other CBS, ABC, NBC and Fox upfront trailers combined. "It's unbelievable," said Schweitzer. "That's more than [the audience for] some of our shows."
The secret to the trailer's online success? "We wanted to make sure we captured three things: heroics, humor and heart," said Schweitzer. "Because, to us, that was the essence of Supergirl." With a running time of more than six minutes, it's also one of the longest upfront trailers CBS has produced. "But we really felt we wanted to show both sides, the relationship, emotion, female-empowerment side, and then action - hey, superhero fans, here's this, too," he said.
Also key is the quality of the pilot itself, according to Schweitzer. "If it's not in what they give us, it's really hard to make a great trailer."
USA Today caught up with the comic book creator to find out what he has planned for the book. Here's part of the interview...
Instead, Hitch wants to utilize huge threats that make the heroes question their own approach and force character development instead of just having a major-league slugfest. So in the first story arc, a familiar face returns but another character and what he does to the world causes the League a ton of trouble.
Hitch isn't spoiling who it is but "you've heard of him before," he teases. "One for the old comic fans, this one, but at the same time something completely new because you've never actually seen this character before."
"Justice League of America #1", a double-sized issue, hits stores on June 17, and to celebrate the book's release Bryan Hitch has drawn an inter-connecting cover, which will actually end up being 7 variant covers for the first issue. Additionally, there will also be a seven-panel foldout variant cover as well.
Welcome to a Reality Show on-stage. Scott Long shares his story of how quickly life can go from urban hipster to suburban dipster, which happens when you become a father of twins at 40.
