Teri Hatcher Looks Pretty Darn Good In First Look At Supergirl

Teri Hatcher has been in the acting business for a long time, but through those years one of her most memorable roles has been playing Lois Lane on Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. We recently learned that the newer CW series Supergirl had hired Teri Hatcher to put her own mark on Supergirl and the actress has kindly been sharing photos from the set. We don't know exactly who Hatcher will be playing but we do have an idea of what she will look like on the show, and as it turns out her costume is certainly going to hug her curves a little. Check it out!

Teri Hatcher headed to Vancouver over the weekend to get ready for her big filming. This week, she's shared a few photos on social media, including the one above, which gives us a first look at her getting fitted for her costume. Supergirl often opts for fairly fitted clothing for its leads, but I really wish this first look gave away a little more about the character Hatcher will be playing...

So far, we know the actress will be a villain in the series, which is an exciting change of pace, as Teri Hatcher has previously played a good gal in the DC universe. At the time of her casting, we learned she would play Season 2's big baddie--which is fascinating, considering the character will be popping in so late in the season. She also evidently will be playing a character that will require some armor, although that doesn't give us a huge indication of who she will be playing.

Onscreen, Teri Hatcher may not be getting along very well with Supergirl, but offscreen, Hatcher and Supergirl actress Melissa Benoist seem to be getting along great.

Sometimes it's even better when we know people are friendly on set but capable of playing characters who are enemies on the small screen. One thing I know for certain: I need Teri Hatcher to show up on the series, and soon. Mainly because I need to know more about her character, although a part of me just wants to see her on the same series as Dean Cain, even if they don't interact at all. We'll let you know as soon as her big first episode is announced.

In the meantime, new episodes of Supergirl air on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET, only on The CW. To find out what is heading to the schedule soon, take a look at our midseason TV premiere guide.
