There was a lot of excitement coming from actress Sasha Calle when she saw herself as Supergirl in the official trailer for The Flash during Super Bowl LVII.
“If there’s anything Supergirl has taught me, it’s hope,” Calle wrote on social media after the trailer premiered Sunday night (February 12). “Anything is possible. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise. I love you!!!!!!”
Her reaction video also included her telling her fans that she “put my heart and soul into Supergirl” and that “it’s so exciting to finally share a little bit of her with you!” In her tweet, Calle called the DC superhero “so special and strong” and said that “getting to know her and feel her has been one of the greatest honors.”
In The Flash trailer for the Super Bowl, Calle’s Supergirl is seen landing a punch square to the face of General Zod (Michael Shannon). She also shows off some of her superpowers by blasting lasers from her eyes.
Near the end of the trailer, Supergirl teams up with Barry Allen, AKA The Flash, and Batman (Michael Keaton) to battle a group of mercenaries in the snow. “Batman, what do we do,” Barry asks as guns are pointed at him. Batman responds: “We try not to die.”
Batman moves his hand to reveal that Supergirl is hovering in the sky behind him wearing what looks like a prison uniform. She lands in the middle of the conflict and defeats some of the men who are threatening Batman and Barry. Then, Supergirl introduces herself to a pair of Barrys as Kara [Zor-El], the biological cousin of Superman in the DC comics.
The final scene of the trailer features Supergirl flying beside Batman’s Batwing with the Barry twins riding inside. One of them snaps a photo of Supergirl with his phone. “Our kids are gonna want to see this,” he says.
We’ll see how well Calle’s Supergirl matches up with DC Comics villains when The Flash premieres at theaters on June 16, 2023.
