After being regularly referred to yet seen only from a distance, in shadow or in flashback kid form in the first season, it has now been confirmed that Superman is officially becoming a proper character in the second season of “Supergirl”.
Moving from CBS to The CW, the series is currently casting the role of Clark Kent/Kal-El to appear on screen alongside heroine Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist). Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg released the following statement on behalf of the show’s producing team which includes Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler:
“Greg, Ali and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of ‘Supergirl’. Superman will be appearing in the first two episodes of the new season and we cannot wait to see who next dons the red cape!”
“Supergirl” Season 2 will air Mondays at 8 p.m. on The CW starting this Fall.
