Laura Vandervoort is Supergirl

I was pretty sure Kristen Bell wouldn’t be cast as Supergirl, but that didn’t stop me from hoping! Turns out I was right, she won’t be making an appearance on Smallville, as the CW has announced their choice for the role:

Look, up in the sky: it’s a bird, it’s a plane! It’s…Supergirl! This fall, Supergirl will be joining the lineup of burgeoning superheroes and villains in SMALLVILLE.

Laura Vandervoort (The Lookout, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”) has been cast as Kara – Clark’s (Tom Welling) 19-year-old cousin.

I don’t know much about her, but I think they made a good choice. She’s young, hot, and Canadian! Okay she’s from Toronto, but still. Her Wikipedia entry is here, and her IMDB profile is here. Her last name has a cool sound to it too, don’t you think?

According to IMDB, the first episode of season seven (titled Bizarro) will air on September 28th. Just over two months to go!
