It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s Supergirl Season 2!

SuperHeroHype

May 12, 2016

There’s some good news breaking right now for fans of DC Comics‘ Maid of Might. Supergirl season 2 has been officially confirmed by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television. There’s a bit of a twist, however, as Supergirl season 2 will see the series move from CBS to The CW. There, the series will join fellow DC Comics shows Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

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.

Earlier this year, Supergirl crossed over with The Flash in a Supergirl episode titled “World’s Finest.” The episode established that, while Supergirl doesn’t take place in the same reality as the other CW shows, it does exist within the same interconnected multiverse. As such, the move from CBS to The CW is likely to pave the way to even more cross-series interaction moving forward. Syfy, meanwhile, has greenlit their own live-action take on the Superman mythos with the upcoming Krypton series. Set 200 years in the past, it has not yet been revealed whether or not Krypton will connect in any way with Supergirl.

Supergirl has previously aired Mondays on CBS. It has not yet been revealed whether Supergirl season 2 will retain the same timeslot.

This is great news. CBS is a bunch of boneheads for letting this slip between their fingers.

Fantastic news. I could never watch Supergirl because CBS is operating in another world online. Now I need to catch up via Netflix and look forward to yet another superhero show to watch.

Superman to Appear in Supergirl Season 2!

SuperHeroHype

Jun 06, 2016

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.

Supergirl previously aired Mondays on CBS and will keep that slot on The CW in the fall.

‘Supergirl’ Casts ‘Teen Wolf’ Star As Superman
Ethan Alter
June 16, 2016

Image

Supergirl has found its Superman. When Melissa Benoist’s Girl of Steel joins the Arrow, the Flash, and the Legends of Tomorrow on The CW this fall, she’ll be joined by her Kryptonian cousin, who has otherwise been a “best heard, not seen” character on the series so far. For Season 2, though, the Last Son of Krypton will finally have a face, and he’ll look a lot like Tyler Hoechlin. The Teen Wolf star takes flight in a role previously played on The CW by Smallville’s Tom Welling, who portrayed a pre-Superman Clark Kent for 10 seasons.

Hoechlin actually has comic book roots that pre-date his Supergirl assignment. At the age of 14, he won the coveted role of Tom Hanks’s son in Road to Perdition, the Sam Mendes-directed adaptation of an acclaimed graphic novel. In addition to his role as Derek Hale on Teen Wolf, the actor will also appear in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.

Hoechlin will make his debut as Superman early on in Supergirl’s second season, although fans shouldn’t expect Clark to make a permanent move from Metropolis to National City anytime soon. For now, the show’s producers are still planning to keep him a recurring presence. Still, Supergirl and Superman are poised to become The CW’s leading dynamic duo… at least until Batman and Robin show up.

Ian Gomez is pretty much the last person I think of when I think of Snapper Carr. Perhaps because Gomez isn't actually lame.

Shouldn't someone with hair on their head be playing Snapper?
