Supergirl is flying her way to CW for the fall, and there is a new big teaser now available for season two. Fans of DC Comics will see Superman in the flesh on the series, and he will make his appearance on the first two episodes of season two, according to IGN.
Andrew Kriesberg said the following about the superhero joining the series in a statement:
“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. 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 role of Clark Kent has not yet been cast. Will this news start up the Tom Welling rumors once again? He starred on Smallville, which ended its run on CW several years ago. With the premiere of Supergirl, many fans wondered if Welling would take on the Clark Kent role for the new series.
With Supergirl now housed on CW, it is possible that Welling could pick up the role, but the actor said that he had not been asked to reprise his role. That might change with the Supergirl move. Fans will have to wait and see who picks up the role of Clark Kent. That news should come in the weeks ahead.
On season one of the series, Superman only appeared in the shadows or in texts with Kara when she needed a little extra encouragement or a ward of praise from her older cousin.
