Supergirl: Kevin Smith shares cute behind-the-scenes Sanvers photo
Like the rest of the internet (and world), Kevin Smith is also a huge Sanvers fan.
The director, who is currently in Vancouver directing episode 5 of Supergirl‘s upcoming season, shared a very cute photo of Chyler Leigh and Floriana Lima, who play onscreen love interests Alex Danvers and Detective Maggie Sawyer, from set on Wednesday.
“From my monitor! I’m a #Sanvers shipper,” he tweeted along with the monitor photo.
Unfortunately, we can’t see Maggie’s finger in the photo, so we have no idea if Maggie actually said yes to Alex’s proposal in the season 2 finale. However, the intimacy in the photo does suggest that the couple is still together, which is great news for fans who were worried about the state of their relationship given the fact that Lima decided to take on a recurring status in the CW superhero drama’s third season.
Executive producer Jessica Queller offered an update on the state of Sanvers at San Diego Comic-Con in July. “Most of you know that Floriana is not able to return for the whole season, but that said, we have an amazing, beautiful story to tell in her remaining episodes that is emotional and modern and really honors the love between these two women,” Queller said. “She’s always welcome back to our show whenever she’s available.” EP Robert Rovner also teased that Alex would be struggling to manage her relationship and DEO work in the new season, too.
Smith previously directed season 2’s “Supergirl Lives” and “Distant Sun.” Check out his other tweets from set below.
Supergirl returns Monday, Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
