Oh, look, it’s a bird! It’s a plane! Nope, it’s just Kara’s cousin, Superman, who has landed in season 2 of “Supergirl”!
It’s every DC fan’s dream come true! The creators of “Supergirl” have finally found a sure way to boost the somewhat low ratings the show has been getting since its premiere. It was also one of many reasons the show had to be moved from CBS to CW. According to The Hollywood Reporter:
“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 in a statement. “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!”

What better way to attract more viewers than by inviting Kara’s cousin to fight alongside her for better publicity? According to E! Online, no one has been cast yet for the role. The showrunners are still looking for the person who will be the right fit for the role.
A Kryptonian rocket has landed on Earth from the home planet of both Superman and Supergirl, and it seems like the latter will need some assistance from her more experienced cousin if she is to defeat whatever is inside it.
Everyone got excited to see an infant Superman in “Supergirl” season 1 and hoped to see his grown version, too, which unfortunately never happened. However, season 2 seems like as good a time as any to introduce a full-fledged version of everyone’s favorite superhero.
It also means that CW becomes the network that will host the actor who will don the cape in “Supergirl” season 2, and the actor who had donned the cape before – Brandon Routh, who plays Atom in “Legends of Tomorrow” – side by side! Can fans expect a Superman-with-Superman crossover? Fingers crossed!
Also, there have been debates about what it would be like if DC interspersed the storylines of its movies with its superhero TV shows, like what Marvel does. Since Superman has been shown to die in the recent “Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice” movie, it would have been pretty tricky to introduce Superman into “Supergirl” season 2 so easily, if DC follows Marvel’s way of things.
