Supergirl is usually fighting crime on the streets of National City but it was her costume that was fighting the elements as the windy weather gave onlookers a flash under the Supergirl costume as Melissa Benoist shot scenes in Vancouver, Canada.

But the Colorado-born actress quickly wrapped her iconic red cape around her to cover up her skirt between takes on the set of Season 3.

In fact, these pictures could quite well be for the season finale of Supergirl Season 3. Several other main characters were pictured on set including Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen/Guardian, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Chris Wood as Mon-El and Erica Durance as Alura Zor-El. 

Melissa had also been spotted on a previous film set of Supergirl dancing in between takes! You can check out the funny video here:

The scene filmed in Vancouver, Canada showed Supergirl looking worried with Alura Zor-El putting her hand on Supergirls arm to reassure her of something.

Joined by Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Chris Wood as Mon-El the four characters then looked up to the sky ready to almost brace for some sort of impact.

Supergirl was then pictured getting ready to make a run for it and also the wind blowing up her skirt again. Her hair was also a victim of the weather getting blown all over the place!

At one point Melissa Benoist and Chyler Leigh had to get their makeup retouched between takes.

They had previously been pictured on set together attending the wedding of The Flash and Iris West! Check out the pics here: Supergirl Attends ‘The Flash’s’ Wedding To Iris West In Season 4!

Dressed in his silver costume and helmet James Olsen / Guardian was also seen standing next to Chris Woods’ character Mon-El suited up in his superhero costume.
