Super producer of superhero shows, Greg Berlanti, revealed in an interview with Variety his new Supergirl series will have a much bigger budget than his other two shows, Arrow and The Flash, both on The CW. Supergirl will air on CBS, which Berlanti credits for the funds.

The largest takeaway for secrets about Supergirl is the ability to really play with effects. Considering Supergirl has a wide variety of powers, it’s good to know they will be portrayed as best as possible.

It looks like Jada Pinkett Smith, and therefore Fish Mooney, will not be back for a second season on Gotham. Smith told Kelly and Michael that she only had a year contract.
