It looks like Clark Kent is officially heading to National City!
Deadline confirms that Superman will officially be making an appearance on the first two episodes of Supergirl season 2.
“Greg, Ali and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of Supergirl,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “We cannot wait to see who dons the red cape.”
The CW may be on the hunt to book the best Man of Steel they can find, but of course, fans of the hit series already have the perfect Superman in mind for the role.
Despite the fact that casting for the role is well under way, many are hoping The CW will ask Smallville actor Tom Welling to reprise his role as Superman for Supergirl.
In an interview with Buzzfeed back in January, Welling addressed the possibility of donning the infamous red cape once more saying, “No one has ever actually asked me to do it. So, I don’t know. It would be kind of odd. I don’t know who he is at this point. He would probably be Superman…”
Can someone please ask him already?!
Supergirl is set to air Mondays nights at 8 p.m. on the CW in the fall.
