When Supergirl returns in 2017 with its midseason premiere it’s with an episode directed by Kevin Smith called “Supergirl Lives”. The title is a cheeky reference to the Superman film script Kevin Smith wrote in the ’90s, which Tim Burton was set to direct with Nicolas Cage starring as the Man of Steel. We’re just hoping that Kara doesn’t have a fight with a polar bear… and if you don’t get that reference then you seriously need to see the documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? What we clearly do get is the return of Roulette.
Supergirl returns to UK screen on Sky One on 30 January.
