Live action show picked up for series by CBS. It's the same creators of Arrow and Flash interestingly enough.

Except ABC since they're owned by Disney, which owns Marvel

Synopsis

Regarding the premise of the series: Kara at age 12 was sent from her dying home planet of Krypton to Earth, where she was taken in by the Danvers, a foster family who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers. After repressing said skills for more than a decade, Kara is forced to use her powers to stop an unexpected disaster. Energized by her heroism for the first time in her life, she begins embracing her abilities in the name of helping the people of her city, earning herself a super moniker along the way.
Kara’s sister Alex was partly jealous of her sibling yet also fascinated by her abilities, prompting Alex to learn as much as she could about alien anthropology, sociology and culture. Today, Alex works for a secret government organization and, alongside her heroic sis, will face many challenges, both mundane and super.

Kara Danvers?

Sounds like an F-U to Marvel.  Was that her name in the comics?

Not related to Marvel at all, but it's a little confusing to explain.

Linda Danvers is one of the few civilian names Supergirl (Kara) has had over several decades. Then in the 90's they created a completely different non-Kryptonian Supergirl whose real name was Linda Danvers (the Matrix Supergirl).

They're just taking her more common name Kara and combining it with Danvers (the Kent like family who adopt her).

It's just very similar to Carol Danvers.

they should get laura vandervort to do the role even though she already played it before on smallville. I do not think she is doing much in her career lately other than her brief role in Ted which game out years ago and V was cancelled.

She was a great Supergirl. Smallville barely explored her and she fizzled out by the end.

The show runner for Arrow/Flash and also Supergirl said she could share the same universe as Flash and Arrow, but it hasn't been decided yet.

I dunno who the actor is, but I have no problem with a black Jimmy Olson.

Though it's a bit weird to have Jimmy Olson and no Superman.

Jeremy Jordan cast as Toyman.

Based on further details, Kara actually works for Cat Grant in her company CatCo. Guy that becomes Toyman is a part of that company.

Superman already exists and is famous, so I'm curious to see how they explain him on the show and the two not meeting.

Costume - looks like the Man of Steel colors, should match Flash and Arrow color tones if they ever crossover.

Not bad looking.

Speaking of Flash/Arrow crossover.  Everyday I read Stephen Amell's Facebook updates the more and more I'm beginning to think DC has retained rights to all the shows and that there are no network lines that can't be crossed in regards to the shows so that cross overs can happen.

I think he's just too optimistic, not in a bad way, but not in a realistic way either. He even thought they could crossover with Constantine.

He's not saying they will.  It's just that I can't think of any other case where a celebrity has been allowed to promote and congratulate shows on a rival network like he has.  He does it so often it feels like DC has the ability to use whichever show with whichever show they want.  Probably not true but I'm all for Captain Amell and his optimism about this.

Well it all depends on DC, Warner, and the individual networks with what they want to do with those shows.

The show runner for Arrow/Flash worked out a deal to make Supergirl share the same universe as the CW shows, including the superhero team up spin off, but the CBS executive said they want to keep it separate for now.

That picture is great.  Hell never really realized how movie ready those costumes are.  To bad DC doesn't want to use the Golden Geese they've been given...
