This got (and is getting) some amount of stick, mostly unwarranted in my opinion. The go-to comparison was the SNL spoof Black Widow trailer from a few weeks ago but Supergirl and Black Widow are pretty (vastly) different. This looks much closer to The Flash which manages to be fun and funny, dramatic without brooding darkness, and just downright entertaining. If Supergirl can manage that I’ll be a happy bunny. We could do with more superheroes who smile.
