The Casting Director That Brought Us Arrow And The Flash Is Working On Supergirl


Last month, it was announced that a Supergirl television show had landed a series commitment at CBS, and that it would be coming from Arrow and The Flash producer Greg Berlanti and his frequent collaborator, Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family). Now, we’ve learned that the producer is not the only thing that Supergirl will share with the likes of CW’s two super shows. David Rapaport, the casting director who found Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin for Arrow and The Flash, respectively, will also find our Kara Zor-El.

It’s not at all surprising that Berlanti would once again turn to Rapaport to find the star for his latest DC Comics adaptation. Amell and Gustin are widely revered as excellent choices for their title roles, and are surrounded by a pretty unique and well-balanced cast of supporting characters as well. So, it’s likely that Rapaport will find similar luck with Supergirl. 

Unfortunately, we still don’t know many details about the upcoming series, except that Superman’s Kryptonian cousin will be 24 years old and will begin the series just as she’s coming out of hiding and using her powers for the greater good.
