Melissa Benoist Wants Supergirl To Team Up With Batgirl

Supergirl actress Melissa Benoist is already crossing over with The Flash this season, but that isn't the only hero she would like to team-up with. 

Hi! Melissa here at Facebook in New York and I'm ready to take your questions!

Posted by Supergirl on Friday, March 18, 2016

In a Facebook live Q&A, Benoist got a question from Facebook user Angel, asking "Will Supergirl would be teaming up with other DC female superheroes? I'd like to see you team-up with Batgirl."

Benoist replied "Angel, I feel the same way, and Chyler Leigh who plays Alex on the show, her and I actually, we kind of have a theory that perhaps, and this is just us, we are not the authority on this, but we think that Alex could make a really good Batgirl. She's got all the gear and the gadgets and the D.E.O to make her a really good Batgirl."

If that were to happen, please sign me up. Chyler's character on the show already has the skills to be able to pull it off, and since the show hues closer to classic looks costume wise, I'm sure they would find a nice blend of the black costume and more recent Babs of Burnside look. Either way, it would make a great addition to the show.

  1. Why would Alex become Batgirl though? 

    The Batgirl name implies a connection to Batman.

    I want this. Chyler is the best part of the show.

  2. I would like to see a Batgirl TV show.

    Which one Barbara, Stephanie or Cassandra? Hopefully Cassandra, because she is the best one out of them all. Alex won't work, so it has to be one of the other three.
