No Supergirl story would be complete without the origins of the character as a young girl, set to the backdrop of a planet Krypton doomed to destruction.

And it looks like Greg Berlanti’s CBS Supergirl series has cast the young Kara in the form of  Malina Weissman.

The young actress should eb familiar to fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja movie from last summer… she played the young April O’Neill.

She will be in the pilot episode during a flashback scene… will it be on Krypton? We’d like to think so, but an earth scene is possible too.

The Supergirl pilot is expected to air on CBS in the fall.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
