Superman to appear in Supergirl season 2
Not only is Supergirl season 2 set to air on The CW this fall, but the girl of steel will be bringing along her famous cousin! The CW has officially announced that Superman will appear in Supergirl season 2.
“Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of Supergirl,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said. “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!”
The character has maintained a presence on the series by keeping up an online correspondence with Kara and even appearing in the opening credits of the show. In addition, a young version of Kal El appeared when Kara was infected by the Black Mercy.
Melissa Benoist leads the cast of Supergirl as both the title character and her mild mannered secret identity, Kara Danvers. The Supergirl cast also includes Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, Chyler Leigh as Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow “Winn” Schott, Jenna Dewan Tatum as Lucy Lane (sister of Lois), David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord, with Dean Cain and Helen Slater as Kara’s adoptive parents, Jeremiah and Eliza Danvers.
Supergirl previously aired Mondays on CBS and will keep that slot on The CW in the fall.
