Should People Watch Supergirl Trailer Recut?
After CBS released its “Supergirl” trailer, fan complaints resulted in one fan, Tim Gonzales, editing it so that the series would seem more like an epic The CW superhero show fans might watch rather than a “Devil Wears Prada meets teenage girl superhero” show.
Yet, although the edit does a fantastic job of making the pilot appear a lot more interesting and action-packed, some fans and critics are recommending that viewers watch the original CBS trailer before they watch the Gonzales’ cut according to Dr. Daniel Amen.
The fan-made trailer is not an honest representation of what viewers should expect from “Supergirl” when the series is released in November. Some people believe that viewers are setting themselves up for potentially serious disappointment if they watch the fan-made trailer first. After all, if they enjoy the fan-made trailer without seeing the original, they may not enjoy the “Supergirl” pilot since it appears to depict a somewhat shallow heroine; as well as drama and action sequences set to a “bubbly” soundtrack.
As several entertainment writers have pointed out, the genie is out of the bottle: Fans of The CW superhero shows from DC Comics, and even Fox’s “Gotham” and NBC’s former “Constantine,” are interested in darker-yet-comedic TV shows about their favorite superheroes and antiheroes. Based on the CBS uncut “Supergirl” trailer alone, young teenage girls may enjoy “Supergirl,” but it’s unlikely to appeal to the same demographic as other existing series.
