Supergirl To Cast A Teenage Superman

CBS’s new DC Comics drama “Supergirl” has only teased Superman’s presence so far – mostly cameos of a the character shot from behind or in shadow.

Now they’re poised to introduce him on the show but not in the way you’d expect – a 13-year-old actor with “future leading man looks” is being sought to play the potentially recurring role of a teenage Kal-El says TV Line.

First appearing in the thirteenth episode of the first season, the character will appear via a series of flashbacks that will establish the cherished bond between him and Kara.

“Supergirl” started strong out of the gate on CBS but has since seen drop-offs. Even so, the most recent episode still managed to pull in a 1.5/5 rating and 7.2 million viewers in Live + Same Day ratings.
