Although Superman has played an indirect and generally off-screen role in the series, appearing in flashbacks and occasionally corresponding with his cousin Kara, the character has yet to be featured prominently in the show.
That will change in the first few episodes of the second season, according to executive producer Andrew Kreisberg.
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!
However, Warner Bros. has shown little interest in creating a single, unified cinematic universe between its television and movie projects similar to the one Marvel Studios has developed — meaning that fans will get yet another, different version of Superman for Supergirl than the one played by Henry Cavill in Man of Steel and Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Former Glee actress Melissa Benoist stars in Supergirl, which follows the title character s adventures in the fictional National City as she struggles to maintain a normal existence while protecting her adopted home from the constant threat of super-powered villains.
Along with Benoist as Supergirl s alter ego, Kara, the series cast 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, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, and Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord.
