Melissa Benoist On Tone Difference Between DC Movies & Television

- Advertisement -

In a recent interview, Supergirl actress Melissa Benoist was asked about whether or not she thinks the DC Extended Universe’s tone will eventually fit in with DC television.

“I think so. Ezra Miller’s Flash is bringing humor and quirkiness, and the DC TV universe has had to grapple with some pretty dark, emotional storylines on “Arrow.” I do think it’s inevitable that we all start to reflect each other. But I do love how positive and uplifting “Supergirl’s” character is and I don’t think she will change too drastically from that, because in essence that’s just who she is.”

This is a somewhat controversial topic among comic book fans. Some prefer the dark and gritty DCEU tone, whereas other enjoy the lighthearted nature of DC TV shows.

Supergirl returns to The CW on January 23, with Wonder Woman and Justice League hitting theaters later this year.
