This photo of Melissa Benoist in costume on set leaked about a week after filming completed on the 20-day pilot shoot.

Composer Blake Neely posted this image marking the recording of the pilot’s musical score:

Finally, at the end of April, Visual Effects Supervisor Armen V. Kevorkian (who has worked on Star Trek: Voyager and The Flash) tweeted the completion of the visual FX:
Saying farewell to my girl in red and blue and working with an 8 foot gorilla can be exhausting. #Supergirl #grodd #TheFlash

The studio will now be showing the pilot to CBS executives and test audiences and making any changes necessary before CBS presents their fall 2015 pilots to advertisers at the May 13 upfronts. The network has already issued a series commitment, so we should expect to hear about a full series order before the upfront presentations. UPDATED: Yep, it’s been picked up!
