The experiences we had at San Diego Comic Con were incredible. Meeting the cast of Supergirl at the SRSLY Super Power Hour (and the cast of all the other CW hero shows) is something we will always remember. Talking nearly one on one with each cast member at the Press Roundtables is also an experience we will treasure. The following interview, however, is easily the best interview we've ever done and the opportunity to talk with Sterling Gates about Adventures of Supergirl has reignited our vigor for the show, the comic, and the character. Hearing Gates speak about Kara Zor-El, two things become apparent. This man knows how to tell a story and his passion for the character and his work is surpassed by none. Any and every Supergirl fan will want to watch this interview:
We want to extend our sincere gratitude to Sterling Gates for the opportunity to talk with him at SDCC this year.

One of the greatest treats we were able to do during San Diego Comic Con, was to go to Buzzfeed.com's Srsly Super Power Hour party on the rooftop of the Altitude Lounge. The party was an invite only party and was very limited in who was allowed in. In fact, even if you were on the guest list, you couldn't get in if you were too late. We, of course, were there for the Supergirl cast but we ended up getting starstruck by all the CW cast members. The event kicked off with the King of the CW DCTV, Grant Gustin, accompanied by some of his fellow cast mates. Grant couldn't have been more gracious to all the people at the party. In fact, it was true of all the actors at the party. Their schedule is grueling, and the weather was HOT, some had just flown in, and others had done signings and panels all day and yet all were just so sweet and accommodating. It was very impressive! Some of you followed us on periscope while our staffer Kelsey went to meet as many of the celebrities as she could but for those that missed it, the video below shows our impromptu interviews and is topped off with a never before seen video of the cast of Supergirl being honored at the end of the party! (By the way, Grant did start the party off but Melissa was there as the big finale!) Catch the video and our photos below:
Oh, and finally, this was the video playing on all the TVs at the party:
I can't say that I would have had the courage to do this to the cast like MTV did but I am glad that they did it. When Supergirl's cast sat down with MTV to talk about season 2 and the move to the CW, the host asked them to sing a recap of season 1 for everyone. Talk about bold! That said, this is a perfect example of how this cast is a group of fun loving people that clearly love what they do. Check out the video below:
Oh my goodness! If for some reason you were living under a rock and just emerged to see the world and learn of Supergirl, then seeing this blooper reel teaser is all you are going to need to want to immediately run out and pick up the Blu-ray or DVD box set of season 1! It has always been clear that the cast is having fun on set and now we can see some of that humor! You can't miss it, watch it below:
So as you all know and probably have seen, we spear-headed the news that DCTV's trinity (Melissa Benoist, Grant Gustin and Stephen Amell) were going to be on Conan last week during his coverage at SDCC. Well we need to play a little catch up here as we were in flight during the show and were doing SDCC coverage in San Diego so we didn't get to post on this. If you haven't seen them yet, here are some great clips of DCTV's royalty on Conan O'Brien. Thanks to TeamCoco.com for sending these over. Visit teamcoco.com to see all of Conan's SDCC coverage!
