It appears that Supergirl has flown to a galaxy far, far away to acquire her very own lightsaber.

Lexi Alexander, director of the latest Supergirl episode titled Truth, Justice, and the American Way, took to Twitter recently to share a behind-the-scenes photo of herself, series star Melissa Benoist, and co-star Chyler Leigh (Alex Danvers) brandishing their own fierce lightsabers.

See Alexander’s post below:


Supergirl is a DC character, while Star Wars is owned by Disney, which also owns the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It doesn’t mean though that the two worlds can’t make a crossover, at least when it comes to stars and fans.

Earlier this month, we shared a fan-made trailer of Batman v Superman incorporated with the trailer theme of Captain America: Civil War. The video mashup was awesome.

The latest Supergirl episode, Truth, Justice, and the American Way, sees the titular superhero battling against Master Jailer (Jeff Branson). The deadly protagonist is on a hunting and executing mission against escaped Fort Rozz prisoners. The episode also sees Cat hiring a second assistant named Siobhan Smythe (Italia Ricci), Meanwhile, Kara and James are disagreeing over the DEO’s methods.

Supergirl airs on CBS, Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.
