A follow-up snap showed Benoist's new mini superhero squad smiling and hugging the leading lady. "… and I'm pretty sure we had a good time," she shared, complete with a smiley face emoticon.
This fall, Benoist will soar onto TV screens as Superman's cousin, Kara Zor-El, more commonly known as Supergirl, breaking up the superhero boys' club that's currently seen in Arrow, The Flash and Gotham.
"I think everybody is ready for it," Benoist told ET about having more female superheroes on TV. "It's important to have femininity in this genre. It's her point of view, living through her heroics, and balancing her day-to-day life with it. I think it is relatable."
At ET's Comic-Con suite last month, Benoist also explained why Supergirl will be an important role model for young women. "In a way, Kara is discovering herself right now when we meet her in the pilot," she said, "and I'm glad that I get to show girls that you can do anything you want to do."
